Thayer Coggin Sofa. Is it a Milo Baughman design?

I found this sweet leather sofa at the Goodwill up the street from me. I'm kinda thinking it might be a Milo Baughman design seeing as this was sold in 1969 and I think that Mr. Baughman was designing for Thayer Coggin about that time. I can't seem to find another picture of one quite like it. Anyone have an opinion or educated guess about it?

Sorry i have no idea, but that couch is very nice and it looks to be in good shape. How much were they asking for it?

I picked it up super cheap. I was just about to leave the thrift store when I spotted it out of the corner of my eye. It was put on the floor while I was going through the smalls. It didn't last 10 minutes! I had it in the car and on the way home "tout de suite"!

Good catch! Beautifull sofa.

Here's a similar one (different legs) attributed to Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin. Does it still have the Thayer Coggin label under the seat?

Miguel - It does have the Thayer Coggin tag. It even has a delivery tag dated 1969. Click on the link below the picture to see my blog posting about the sofa. I was directed to the same sofa you mentioned when it was listed on eBay. Thanks.
