Historic Charleston Foundation
Established in 1947, the Historic Charleston Foundation is dedicated to preserving and protecting the built environment of Charleston, the largest repository of 18th and early 19th century architecture in America. At Baker, we honor Charleston's heritage and its rich history and are proud that our Historic Charleston collection assists in funding the foundation's efforts toward preserving this national treasure.
Old world techniques
Before the industrial revolution, furniture craftsmen would hand plane the tops of tables and case goods. Hand planing is truly an art that requires a trained eye and skilled hand. Today, the finest Baker craftsmen employ this old world tradition to create several of the pieces in this collection.
