History: Baker Furniture began more than a century ago, when a Dutch immigrant named Siebe Baker opened a woodworking company in Michigan in the 1890s. Baker and son Hollis grew the company into one that offered furniture known for its craftsmanship and design aesthetic. Over the years, the business has expanded to carry a range of styles, including Traditional, Continental and pieces based on antiques. Two years ago, Baker Furniture opened its 14th showroom in Scottsdale’s Airpark Design Center.

Philosophy
: According to the company, the store presents customers with offerings displayed in vignettes that represent three “lifestyles”: Traditional, Contemporary and Casual.

What’s in store: Furnishings in the nearly 4,000-square-foot showroom include uphol-
stered pieces, casegoods, mirrors and artwork. These range from classic leather armchairs to accessories and rugs. More than 20 in-house and designer collections are offered, such as The Milling Road Collection, The Barbara Barry Collection, and The Jacques Garcia Collection, as well as a fabric library featuring a wide assortment of textiles to customize upholstered pieces.

Don’t miss: The Lighting Gallery offers an extensive lineup, from a sconce draped with crystal glass beads, to a white ceramic torchiere lamp with a leaf design, to a seeded-glass table lamp.
