Hip and edgy, much less affordable, have not traditionally been adjectives associated with Baker furniture—a venerable upscale maker known for timeless glamour. But at last fall’s High Point Market, Baker unveiled its newly revamped Milling Road collection, described as “casual sophistication reimagined.” Aimed at younger buyers, the collection’s price points are up to 50 percent lower than Baker’s typical range.

The line—now dubbed Baker/Milling Road—will be a series of collaborations with noted designers. It launches with a collection by Kara Mann, whose concepts the New York Times called “interiors with a subversive side.”

“This was the biggest and most fabulous launch at Market,” says Nina Nash of Mathews Furniture + Design. “The collection uses bold, unconventional finishes and interesting materials such as glossy lacquer with an unusual wavy effect, stark-white shearling, and partially shattered mirrors, which are especially cool.”

Now available at Mathews Furniture + Design, 1240 West Paces Ferry Road
