Baker furniture received the equivalent of an Oscar® nod by being featured in the exclusive Architectural Digest Greenroom at the Oscars® at this year’s Academy Awards on February 24.
Los Angeles-based interior designer Madeline Stuart created the luxurious suite inspired by the legendary art director and production designer, Cedric Gibbons. A Hollywood legend, Mr. Gibbons has won 11 Academy Awards for art direction and is credited with designing the Oscar statuette.
Austin Rothbard, President at Baker commented “We are pleased to once again partner with Architectural Digest to bring Madeline Stuart’s Greenroom to life in a most elegant manner… Baker has been handcrafting fine furniture for over a century. Both the Oscars and Baker have earned and enjoyed global recognition, yet ultimately, we are hallmarks of American design.”
The Art Deco-influenced interior designs Gibbons is known for often had stepped walls and ceilings, built-in upholstered banquettes, and polished black floors-luxe features that were the highlights of this year’s Greenroom. Ms. Stuart selections of Baker furniture and lighting recall a sumptuous yet tailored modern style and reflect an interest in the Deco styling of the Golden Age of Hollywood.
