"THE IDEA OF MOVING TRADITION FORWARD INTO A NEW VOCABULARY WHOSE TOOLS ARE BASED ON SIMPLICITY, SCULPTURAL FORM AND LUXE FINISHES, IS AT THE CORE OF MY OWN EVOLUTION AS A DESIGNER"
Schooled as an architect, designer Thomas Pheasant has just celebrated his 10th anniversary with Baker furniture. Based on classic Roman shapes infused with today's moderne sensibility, all 75 new pieces are classically fresh silhouettes, with a timeless aesthetic. Conceived with a master's restraint, each item is understated, elegant + refined. When positioned in a group, you have achieved an ensemble of pure perfection.
Thomas is a renaissance man. Inspired by great European architecture, this collection is an homage to the past as well as a celebration of the future. Accessories, the jewelry of a room, were thoughtfully included as mirrors, boxes + vases are all available to satisfy the palette + complete the look. The "art" images that dress the showroom walls are actual photos taken by Thomas, on his worldly travels. His line of textiles cover the pieces, to unify his statement. Inspiration is all around, in every exquisite detail, prolifically executed.
Here are some NYC Baker Showroom vignettes that are now available to see + feel, in person:
Half ottoman, half coffee table this clever hybrid allows for the ease of both soft + solid surfaces.
All angles considered, this well designed dining room is "complete" before the food or guests arrive.
The bedroom is balanced without being predictable created by a complimentary selection of shapes with the consistency of material + scale.
Writing desk, computer station or dressing table. Flat surfaces are important for comfort.
The "Radiant Screen" is Thomas' solution to new "vanilla box" architecture that always seems to have uncomfortable corners + odd angles. Adding this tall stunning piece of mahogany blocks any construction imperfection while adding height, opulence + elegance.
The addition of lantern lighting completes the room. Crafted from the same luxe materials as the furniture allows for a fluid space that feels completely custom. There are more than a dozen lighting options for the ceiling, table + walls.
