"Eventually everything connects - people, ideas, objects.

The quality of the connections is the key to quality per se."

Milo Baughman

I am working on a 3dMOD for a client that involves creating virtual stagings of a new home - one in traditional and one more modern.  Hence, I'm into sofas, chairs and tables . . . creating google sketchup models of my own interpretations of some pretty cool and classic pieces. 

I've always liked the Shelter Sofa which of course led me to revisit Milo Baughman.  While I am not a fan of Crate and Barrel's Shelter reproduction, I sure love lots of his originals.  Here's his rosewood sofa. It's so cool it's hot.  Who would not want to get dressed up and sit on this sofa with a close friend, a great book, a martini?  And this 1971 Thayer Coggin ad sheet.  Too cool for words.  And inspirational.  What about a setup like this in the family room?  Don Draper himself would drool (to himself, of course).
