Good design lies at the heart of fine furniture. For Baker, that means a great collection assembled literally one item at a time. Baker builds furniture from more periods, styles, and international influences than any other maker. Whether a best of kind reproduction or an original from a celebrated designer, each item contributes to a sensibility that is uniquely Baker.
Yet the company also selects each item for its own merit. With careful attention to scale, proportion, and ornamental detail, the line develops a rare sense of appropriateness. The result is furniture thought tempting today and timeless tomorrow.
The Baker Design Legacy displays a complete history of notable design throughout the decades.
