HICKORY, N.C. (April, 2018) Baker, the premier luxury furnishings manufacturer and designer, is pleased to introduce inventive and elegant new furniture, upholstery, and accessories by acclaimed designer Laura Kirar. The new 28-piece Laura Kirar Collection for Baker, which includes dramatic new mirrors, superbly crafted occasional tables, voluptuous sofas, and handsome armchairs, was presented at the Spring 2018 International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, N.C., from April 13-18, 2018.
Laura Kirar’s perfectly calibrated new group is her fourth collection for Baker. It was designed and planned in close collaboration with Baker’s highly knowledgeable craftsmen and artisans and features outstanding handcrafted details and complex new silhouettes. Laura Kirar first made a debut in her partnership with Baker in 2006, again in 2010, and in 2014. With each superbly planned collection, her designs have received universal praise from top designers and leading editors, and given commercial accolades worldwide.
At the heart of each collection are designs informed by Kirar’s deep research into design and style history, as well as her background in fine arts and crafts. Now her deep immersion in Mexican culture, design and pre-Columbian architecture are influencing her collections. The Yucatan, where she lives part of the year, and all the beauty that unfolds around it has woven itself into Kirar’s aesthetic. Her clean, simple shapes, generous proportions and the integrity of superb craftsmanship remain– but now they are infused with brilliant color, organic references and a wealth of materials like onyx and cerused oak selected for their casual, yet luxurious style.
