6 Designers of Baker Furniture

6 Designers of Baker Furniture

Furniture matters. The furniture you select for your client’s home must strike a visual balance between aesthetic versatility and elegant style. But, we know how difficult furnishing a home can be. It’s likely that your client has a busy schedule, which means they want to get the most out of every second they spend at home. Because of this, you need to ensure that the space you create can act as a tranquil, safe haven of comfort and relaxation, where your client can sit back, unwind and relax at the end of the day. To do this, you need to make every room you are designing beautiful and welcoming.


However, merely designing a beautiful home is not enough. You need to put the necessary measures in place to ensure that this beauty can last for a long time with the right care. Every home requires regular maintenance. But if you fill your client’s home with high-quality furniture, then the amount of work they need to do to maintain it decreases dramatically. Moreover, when you choose high-quality designer pieces for your client’s home, it is unlikely that the pieces you buy will be damaged since the better the quality of an item, the less fragile it is. Therefore, you must invest in beautiful furniture that is as well designed as it is structurally sound.


Here at Decor House, our mission is simple. We want to help every one of our customers find furniture that can help them make their client’s dream interior a reality. Over the last 38 years, we have used our experienced team members’ knowledge and talent to serve our clientele, providing a vast array of design services for every one of our customers. The furniture we carry and our designs have been featured in Architectural Digest as well as many other well-known publications. We know that your clients don’t buy new furniture for their home every day, which is why we only carry pieces made by brands we trust to produce high-quality, stylish, durable furniture for the modern home. Today we are using our industry knowledge to highlight Baker and the talented designers that the brand has collaborated with, exploring the designer’s history, style, and product lines, so you can find furniture that meets the specific needs of your project.

He began his first major project at only eight years old- designing and furnishing his grandparent’s home to reflect familial love. After completing his education, he started working for contemporary architects, designing breathtaking hotels as well as domestic interiors. After spending decades dedicated to his work, he was given the title of Commander of the Order of the Arts and Letters and a Chevalier in the Order of the Légion D’honneur and commended for his boundary-breaking work in the hospitality industry.

Jacques Garcia Furniture embraces simplicity in his designs. Yet, in his most recent collaboration with Baker, he challenges natural forms with sensual structures while still paying homage to the grandeur of the pieces in design canon. Over the years, his inspirations have changed. No longer is he limited by traditional norms. His success means that his furniture now sees inspiration from Napoleonic extravagance and Zen minimalism within the same piece. Each piece of furniture from this collaboration is expressive and soulful, capturing and reflecting the designer’s own energy and enthusiasm for his work. The neutral palette of this collection means that you can furnish your client’s entire home with pieces from this collaboration while maintaining a cohesive color story.


We recommend furniture by this designer to those looking for furniture with a sense of soul, with unique shapes that will inject personality into your client’s home without overpowering the space. If you are furnishing your client’s living room and need a small functional statement piece, we suggest the le lion stand. The undulating top and a shaped edge add character to the piece, and the paw foot base breathes new life into the traditional three-legged stand. If you are furnishing the dining room, we suggest the Marat upholstered dining chair. With its deeply scalloped profile and a crisp welt, the piece possesses a sense of elite tailoring. It is suitable for both host and side applications, at both round and rectangular dining tables, so no matter what type of atmosphere you are creating, you can be sure that this piece can slip into the scene.

Bakers team of highly skilled artisans make each sketch and render it with as much faith in his original vision as possible in order to create pieces that can bring joy to the designer, the craftsmen who create it, and most importantly- your client. Together Deniot and the Baker team have created a collection inspired by 20th-Century vintage furnishings that reflects the shifting moods at play within any living space through sumptuous textures and tones without taking the livability away from the space.


The style of Deniot’s début collection with Baker can be described in one word- grand. Each piece born from this collaboration is at once serene and sexy, casual yet refined. It is neither coldly minimalist nor lavishly baroque. Deniot’s use of warm antique gold’s on the majority of his pieces means that you can give the room you are furnishing a sense of approachable elegance, making it easy for you to tie together rooms stylistically. The collection is beautifully layered and so very livable while still being eminently versatile- featuring pieces for the bedroom, dining room, kitchen, and living room. By placing a piece from this designer in your client’s home, space invites conversation through art, elevating it from a bland room to a welcoming social space.

Pheasant believes that inspiration and imitation are not the same. And that you must allow your experiences to be filtered through your own unique sensibility as one of the designers of Baker in order to create pieces that are true reflections of the self rather than a shallow imitation of what came before it. This unique thought process has led to the creation of each piece in his collaboration with Baker. As a Baker designer, he masters the neutral palette and focuses on bringing a contemporary dimension to classic design principles, bridging past and present with beautiful silhouettes and distinctive fabrics. Since this designer has designed pieces for every social zone in the home, you can create a cohesive design story through your client’s home by using furniture from the Thomas Pheasant’s Baker collection.
