Featured Piece: The Shelter Sofa

Thayer Coggin, makers of luxurious, hand-crafted modern furnishings, has been a favorite among our clients for years. Home to some of the most iconic modern and mid century silhouettes, they’re known for styles that withstand the test of time.

One of the many timeless pieces in their seating collections is the Shelter sofa – an unparalleled modern classic. Designed by Milo Baughman, this piece was born from his philosophy that furniture should provide both social and emotional benefits. The Shelter’s high back and arms embrace you as you sit back, providing both comfort and personal space.

In open space environments, the high back on the Shelter sofa not only provides style, but also serves as a room divider – delineating the area’s usage without being heavy or constricting. It’s equally beautiful, however, when accented with a console table along the back or placed against a wall.

As a substantially sized piece, you may wonder how the Shelter can fit in your own home. Thayer Coggin takes that into consideration, and handcrafts each one to be easily broken down into two large segments for ease of moving.
