Although both sofas are by Baker and upholstered in the same fabric, they are slightly dissimilar. This electrifying chevron fabric looks like an EKG reading full of blues, greens and yellow variations. Bold an brilliant flame stitch zigzag pulsing of cool colors, in the manner of famed textile designer, Jack Lenor Larsen. Baker made and continues to make some of the highest quality home furnishings on the market. This set of sofas is no exception. The cushions are both dense and very comfortable. Although imperfect, this upholstery is in great condition and has many more years of life remaining.
About Baker, Knapp & Tubbs:
Hollis M. Baker becomes the company’s president in 1961, finding new niches in the luxury market and introducing a wealth of new collections. Baker opens a new manufacturing facility in Mockville, NC, in an effort to create the industry’s highest-quality production-made furniture. Introductions during the 1960s and 1970s included collections of country English and French Provincial furniture, as well as high-end executive desks. Collection highlights include Woburn Abbey, introduced in 1969, featuring 25 choice English antiques of the home of the Duke and Duchess of Bedford. Baker merges with a leading showroom network in 1972 to form Baker, Knapp & Tubbs, which remains one of the largest wholesale distributors in the industry. A year later, it enters the upholstery business with a new plant and division located in High Point, NC. The company launches the Historic Charleston Collection in 1976, drawing inspiration from one of the most fashionable and furniture-forward capitals of the New World.
