The new collection brings freshness to the Guest Designer Series that contains a range of 80 pieces, including upholstery, lighting and accessories. Deniot's significant styles are both informal and bold, which are shown in the furniture designs. He therefore labels his collection for Baker as ‘classic contemporary’ or ‘futuristic classic’, striking a harmonious balance between minimalism and excess.
"Jean-Louis Deniot is a true global visionary, influenced by his many travels across the world, studying culture and styles," said Gregory Heller, vice president, product development, Baker. "The furniture is as aesthetically beautiful as it is comfortable. He has done an excellent job of breaking through with a fresh look for Baker while complementing our existing lines."
Deniot made sure that all furniture designs in Baker's collection had the right balance, proportion and versatility to complement any other decor or furniture whether they were contemporary, vintage or antique styles.
A very prime example could be one of the sofa designs by Deniot, a rather newer look from the 20th century designs giving it a chic contemporary touch to the home. It is 99 inches long and luxuriously upholstered with a crescent-shaped back and corners cut on the diagonal. A mahogany base is used, however there are choices of chocolate mink, black mink or grey mink as well. The finishing look concludes with a sofa that mixes gracefully into a traditional setting and one more contemporary in design.
"All the designs from my collection were done with Baker in mind, for Baker, as it is crucial that it suits the Baker aura and brand," concluded Deniot. "The pieces are not designed to impress, they are supposed to distract, to attract, and to please. There is an aspect of masculine versus feminine duality and that sensibility was respected and reflected in all pieces. I want everyone to be attracted by my collection for Baker."
