Baker and Jean-Louis Deniot; the best collaboration of the year! The French designer hit the AD 100 list of world’s most talented interior designers and features all the greatest interior magazines around the world. For the ultimate furniture brand Baker it seems to be the perfect guest designer for 2016, it certainly is!
Imagine vintage and modern, linear and curved, masculine and feminine. Deniot’s designs are serene, elegant and dramatic. It took two years to design the new furniture collection for Baker. Here’s the sublime result.
Deniot’s inspiration for this new Collection
“I draw inspiration from fashion, art, architecture, past projects, nature, music, trips … I truly find beauty everywhere, in every realm. As in all my work, my Baker line translates Parisian chic into a new, international context. I was inspired by my desire to make my Baker designs mix with any other type of contemporary, vintage or antique furnishing. The pieces have a stylish attitude – they have geometric shapes and curved silhouettes that can be quite sculptural. The lighting and accessories blur the line between art and furniture.” Deniot said in the interview with Baker Furniture.
Jean Louis Deniot has a weakness for pale colors: “I’m always drawn to the soft pale colors, soft grays, antique golds, ivories, with touches of ebony and white: Combinations that create a serene, layered, sophisticated feeling. The look is lush, and for all of its sophistication it stays humble.”
About the patterns
“Geometric patterns are tricky, as they can tend to go out of fashion quickly. They also generally give an overly defined look. I wanted the opposite: timeless graphics based on honeycombs, origami, structural natural stone patterns. Nature creates the most amazing aesthetics, which are above any trend, so I thought it was a good angle to find inspiration for timeless patterns.”
We think this new collection is absolutely great, as we love Baker, we also love Jean Louis Deniot’s style and how he designed this new line; aesthetically, practical and very comfortable!
