A few days ago, someone asked me — a 25-year Baker man and a shameless furniture enthusiast — to help them explain “Why Baker?” in a more commonsense way.
Well, a great friend of mine once told an audience that “Baker makes furniture in more periods, styles, and international influences than any other maker … and as a practical matter, its work remains the very best.” Well done. But, that tells us “What it is” and almost everyone keeps prodding me for “What it means.” That’s an easy question, but it requires a little trip to Never Never Land—a place where expectations are high and experiences higher.
Never uncomfortable. Whether the life of the party or just a night at home.
Never obsolete. (The Museum Arm Chair has been time-tested nearly a century and is a resident at the Smithsonian.)
Collectively, these are very much what Baker means. Why Baker? Well, why not? Never been better.
