In Praise of Baker Fine Furniture

In America today, there is probably not a name that is better regarded for absolutely top-notch furniture manufacturing than Baker - it is the symbol of excellent craftsmanship (and is priced accordingly).

A brief history:
In 1890, Hiram DeLano, Henry Cook and Siebe Baker started Cook, Baker & Company, which did not originally start out as a furniture company. However, by 1893, the company began producing furniture and was part of a major furniture revolution in the Grand Rapids, Michigan metropolitan area.  As of 2010, Baker & Co. is owned by the Kohler Company.

Finding vintage and newer Baker pieces is difficult and prices are high.   Over the years, I have been able to find some exceptional pieces (actually, they all are) and been privileged to give them new life and a new home!
