Milo Baughman

Mr. Baughman, can we be on a first name basis? Right now, we are sourcing quite a few vintage pieces for a client and every time I scroll by one of Milo's designs I ooh and ahh and wish I could fill up my home with brass and upholstery! His style is so effortless and sleek and expensive! It hurts. These pieces are in mint condition, as the price so clearly states, and reupholstery is not necessary! (Yes, the chevron sofa is AWESOME.) But, there are many more affordable Milo pieces out there due to some wear and tear that a little love wouldn't fix in no time!

Mitch had all the great bones to a room - a lovely sofa, 2 cozy leather chairs, an oversized coffee table - but it was feeling bare. We were happy to help with some finishing touches! A graphic rug, fun firewood storage, a colorful lamp, and a great bookshelf were a few things we recommended to transform the room. (The natural light adds to the drama of the before & after but SHHHH, thats a secret!) See more photos here!

You all know how much we love vintage finds. And if you don't, well lemme tell you...we do. Why buy new when the used often has so much more to offer? Uniqueness, extra-love, personality, a good story... and yes, "I found it on craigslist" counts because it still makes all your friends jealous. 

As of late, I've especially been having a visual affair with my rattan furniture loves. And yes, I even mean that Florida 70's living room sofa set with the palm frond upholstery rattan. RELAX! In moderation, of course. For those who are interested in a pop of curiosity, rattan is an organic material that plays nicely with others, adding texture and interest to your space. Both used and new are great options. And painted doesn't hurt either! See below for visual proof!
