How Baker Blends Edgy and Sophisticated

Baker’s influence within the contract design sphere is expanding. The residential furniture manufacturer is helping redefine luxury through a 54-piece collaboration with interior architect Kara Mann—the designer’s first foray into contemporary furnishings. After extensive research into Baker’s archives, Mann channeled her impressive background in art, design, and fashion into formulating the new collection, recently unveiled at High Point Market in 2015.

Blurring the lines between edgy and sophisticated, the Kara Mann Collection for Baker | Milling Road delivers Baker’s signature elegance at a lower price point, all while staying true to the brand’s distinctive craftsmanship and extensive specification options. With over 100 varieties of fabric choices, including 30 specific to the collection, design professionals have the resources they need to create transformative, ideal spaces for clients of all walks. The end result guarantees a tangible, luxurious experience that won’t go over budget.
