Finn Juhl's Floating Baker Sofa


When thinking of the main designers who brought Danish Modern to the United States, Finn Juhl will always remain at the top of the list.  The Danish architect’s furniture designs are easily distinguished from those of his contemporaries' by the floating back and seat combined with his personal wooden modernist style and organic curves.

A prime example of Juhl’s work is his Baker Sofa he created in 1951 while working for the Baker Furniture Company.  The back of the sofa is suspended above the seat giving off the illusion it is hovering over it and also creates a visual lightness for a sofa of its size.

Our reproduction of the Baker Sofa honors the same dimensions of Juhl's original design.  With 4 wood color choices for the base and 19 color options our of exclusive boucle fabric colors for the two-toned sofa, this sofa can be personalized to fit any living room setting.  With a traditional hardwood internal frame and our high resilient multi-density foam, our Baker Sofa Reproduction is guaranteed to serve you with style and comfort for many years.

Come visit any of our showroom locations near you and feel firsthand how our furniture is different from all the rest!
