Toms Price Introduces Thayer Coggin Galleries in Two Stores And Coming Soon to a Third Store
Toms Price recently debuted Thayer Coggin Galleries at its Skokie and Lincolnshire stores. Handcrafted in High Point, North Carolina since 1953, Thayer Coggin is a premium brand in timeless, modern design. Each piece is meticulously bench-made by a single craftsperson.
"At Toms Price we are thrilled to offer Thayer Coggin. Customers are seeking more modern traditional design; or Transitional Design as well as the ability to customize," said Lori Stengren, Toms Price Vice President of Marketing and Merchandising. "Toms Price aligns itself with high caliber, venerable brands namely Stickley, Shifman Mattress, and the addition of Thayer Coggin fills this niche nicely."
With three settings on display in Skokie and two in Lincolnshire, Toms Price will have the largest Thayer Coggin Galleries to date. In place there for less than a month, the early success of Thayer Coggin has prompted Toms Price buyers to add the collection to the Wheaton store, as one of the new vendors for its November Re-Grand Opening, according to Stengren.
Thayer Coggin is a family company very much like Toms Price, where the original founding family is still actively involved with business operations," said Scott Price, president of Bloomingdale, IL-based Toms Price and fourth generation owner.
Royale Coggin Wiggin, daughter of co-founder Thayer Coggin operates the company today. Her leadership continues the collaboration of design, engineering and manufacturing techniques that her father and lead designer Milo Baughman established to help define the Mid Century Modern design category.
Phil Miller, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Thayer Coggin describes the premium brand "as an investment, built to last with care by craftsman and led by ownership with a passion for the industry. Today, consumers don't want just a financial transaction. They want information about the company behind the product, how and where it is built, its reputation and integrity."
