Goerge VI liked baths. And he liked to take naps after his baths. He would stretch out on a daybed by TOP French designer of those days, Jacques Adnet. Andre Arbus was inspired by the regal recliner and designed the Du Roi 7391CS chaise for Baker Furniture. The chaise was part of the King’s Bedroom interior at the Palais de l’Elysee, home of the President of the French Republic well into the 20th Century. It´s yours for around $8.500.
Du Roi chaise for Baker Furniture
I love the collection of Baker Furniture.
This American company speaks the language of style; fluent!
They are not trying to be trendy, but to be timeless. You can’t put your finger on their style. Is it vintage? Is it antiques? retro? modern? It doesn’t matter what it is, it’s gorgeous! The accent is on the product, from design to finish.
Sensei Chaise Lounge Chair
At the beginning, a Dutch craftsman named Siebe Baker worked with his hands to create simple yet sturdy wooden furniture. The success of his company allowed his son, Hollis Baker, to study at university, travel the Old World, and become a connoisseur with the eye of a collector. Today these two thoughts, the eye and the hand, remain the cornerstone of Baker Furniture. I love the vintage and antique feel and look of their products.
