The American brand’s broad and highly versatile collection has now arrived in Singapore at the Proof Living ION showroom.
7 May, 2012
Following its successful introduction of American brand Barbara Barry to Singapore a couple of years ago, Proof Living is taking yet another leap forward with Baker, which incidentally also carries a 62-piece Barbara Barry collection.
Barbara Barry for Baker
Baker’s approach to design and construction of upholstered furniture is similar to the way a couturier approaches a garment. At Baker, what’s inside a piece of furniture is just as important as what is on the outside.

There’s a distinctly harmonious balance between scale and proportion, and Baker uses up to 11 layers of material on seats and backs to give exacting comfort and durability. The finest-quality lumber is also used with interlocking joinery, braced and fastened to last a lifetime.

Each of Baker’s collaboration with designers offers something unique.
Barbara Barry’s style is characterised by fluid lines, and balanced and graceful proportions; Thomas Pheasant’s classical-meets-contemporary style is defined by symmetrical forms with added classic decorative elements; Laura Kirar’s designs draw inspiration from organic forms; and Bill Sofield’s design are inspired by his travels. Many of his pieces also feature exotic materials.
