She wore, Blue Velvet…Bluer than velvet was the night… Don’t you just love that Bobby Vinton classic?? Well, this Baker sofa we have to offer you doesn’t ACTUALLY have blue velvet fabric, but it IS velvety feeling!! This is a low-profile Lawson style sofa upholstered in Bellagio Cobalt chenille fabric by Fabricut. We aren’t sure if Baker had this sofa made with this as its original fabric or whether it has been reupholstered, but it’s gorgeous!! It is SO SOFT and the sheen is just lovely! When you brush it one way the nap looks lighter and when you brush it the other way it looks a little darker. And under the sofa, it shows off its wonderful square tapered wood legs! There are three loose zippered seat cushions with their original feather down pillow center wrapped in foam, and an additional poly wrap around the foam. The seat back cushions are similar with the original feather down pillow center, and they are also poly wrapped. They’re super nice because they have the softness and comfort of down but because of the poly surround, they hold their shape much nicer! This is a classic Lawson style sofa with wonderful square tapered wood legs! And talk about versatility in style! This sofa will fit in with your living or sitting room whether your style is mid-century modern, Hollywood Regency, Industrial, Traditional, Contemporary, and the list goes on… Change the throw pillows and you’ll change the whole look of the sofa!!
Baker is one of the most prestigious names in furniture! They were founded in 1890 by Siebe Baker, an immigrant from the Netherlands as an interior woodwork and door company. Three years later they made their first piece of furniture. In 1910 Siebe’s son, Hollis S. Baker, joined the company as a salesman and throughout most of Baker’s existence it was a family-controlled business, even being sold and repurchased in the 1920s-1930s. Baker is considered a design legacy and over the years they have produced furniture designed by such greats as Donald Desky and Kem Weber in the early 20th century, Finn Juhl in the mid-20th century, and John Saladino and Barbara Barry in the late 20th century. They have introduced many award-winning furniture collections including, during the 1940s and 1950s, Far East Collection, the first Asian furniture collection manufactured in the USA; and Palladian Collection an Italian neo classic design. Then, in the 1960s and 1970s the introduction of country English and French Provincial featuring the reproduction of choice antiques from the home of the Duke and Duchess of Bedford. After decades of being in the Baker family hands, in 1969 it was sold to Magnavox then in 1986 to Kohler Co. It remains today a part of Kohler and operates out of North Carolina. Still one of the top names in furniture.
