Founded by Siebe Baker in 1890, Baker specializes in the production of wood furnishings.
Baker started off with producing bedroom furniture in the 1920's and created the first furniture production program in the United States starting with the introduction of modern Chinese pieces.
In the following decades, the company introduced Italian neoclassical and Danish modern furniture designs, which were highly appreciated creations.
In the 1960s and 1970s, they asserted their expertise in creating high-quality furniture and expanded their collection to include antiques. They made an impact in the aristocratic market from Woburn Abbey to the home of the Duke and the Duchess of Bedford.
In the 1980s, the company began collaborating with important designers from all over the globe. The McMillen collection was introduced during this time.
They later launched a more affordable collection more attainable to the masses, called the Milling Road.
Starting the early 2000s, Baker launched the collector's edition inspired by eminent European designers, Duquette and Arbus.
Baker was asked to furnish the green room for two editions of the Academy Awards.
For three consecutive years, the company furnished the VIP room at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
During more recent years, Baker has opened international showrooms in France, Russia, Singapore and China.
