Pierre Paulin for Baker Furniture Bird’s-Eye Maple and Walnut Inlay Art Deco Executive Desk


An extremely rare and exceptional Art Deco executive desk designed in 1984 by Pierre Paulin for Baker Furniture. The desk features gorgeous bird’s-eye maple wood grain with walnut inlays in the signature motif for the Paulin Collection. The drawers are fitted to give a floating effect, and legs display a clean edge of stepped mitres. Made with the highest quality craftsmanship, as expected from Baker. Wood grain is exquisite, as are the solid brass double-square pulls. The original Baker label is present. The desk is in excellent original vintage condition.

In the mid-1980s, Baker retained Pierre Paulin to design a singular collection of furniture. Paulin stated he took inspiration from the interiors of the Elysee Palace that he had completed for Georges Pompidou and François Mitterand. The resulting venture proved costly, and only a rarefied few of the Paulin pieces were created.

Chair space measures: 28.5″ H x 33″ W.

Dimensions: 72ʺW × 36ʺD × 30ʺH
