Baker Sofa

The Baker is available in the following configurations: 3 seater sofa.

 

With regards to materials, this designer sofa is available in fabric upholstery.

 

Edgar Kaufmann Jr., a prolific art collector and then director of the Design Department at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, introduced Finn Juhl to the American design world. During a trip to Denmark, he became so fascinated by Juhl’s artistic take on furniture design that he invited him to the United States.

 

In 1949, Kaufmann Jr. wrote an article about Juhl in the magazine Interiors, which led to Hollis Baker, a furniture manufacturer from Michigan, inviting Juhl to design a modern furniture collection for him. This chain of events was the beginning of what became known as Danish Modern, and a boom for Danish design in the United States.

 

The sculptural Baker Sofa with its two-piece back became Juhl’s American debut.

 

The Baker Sofa is masterly manufactured with a wooden frame in oak or walnut. The upholstery is 100% hand sewn in fabric or leather with springs in the cushion, providing maximum comfort and durability. This exclusive sofa is built to please its owner for generations to come.

Finn Juhl

DENMARK (1912-1989)

Danish architect Finn Juhl (1912–1989) is regarded as one of the greatest furniture designers of the 20th century. He was a pioneer figure within Danish furniture design and the Danish Modern movement. Being commissioned to furnish one of the larger delegates rooms at the UN building in New York, and being represented at the Museum of Modern Art, made him well known outside of Denmark early on. His many contacts led to collaboration with the American furniture industry making his furniture among the first to make Danish Modern an international phenomenon. Today, Finn Juhl’s furniture are seen in private and public places, as well as museums, around the world.
