I've always felt that workhorse pieces such as sofas, dining tables and dressers should last for years and years. Temporary, low quality furniture ends up being expensive because it falls apart easily, needs to be replaced often and winds up in landfills.
Baker Furniture has long been the benchmark for quality in the design world. I have a Baker coffee table that my parents received as a wedding gift and it's just as beautiful today as it was in the 1960's!
I'm so excited that Baker has a new line called Baker Studio. The impeccable quality is all you expect from Baker, but the prices might surprise you. While the style is not downsized, the price points are. If this is what we'll find in the new economy, bring it on!
John Saint-Denis, Los Angeles Showrooms and Stores Manager for Baker Furniture says, "Our Baker Studio line focuses on the stylish young urban client who's taste is sophisticated even if their design budget is more limited. We offer a range of styles that are customized to the needs of the client."
John and his team are super helpful. If you're in LA, check them out at the flagship store on La Cienega just north of Beverly Blvd or at the Pacific Design Center.
