Baker Furniture Company
Steel frame with black powdercoat finish. Glove soft calf skin leather. Adjustable down-filled headrest. Previewed by Baker at the fall furniture show in High Point, NC, in October of 1984, this iconic arm chair was formally introduced by Baker Furniture at the Chicago "NEOCON" exhibition in June 1985. The price was $4,927. In that period the company was developing the "Baker Executive Office" division, and for several years the company made an important publicity oriented introduction at that annual show. The Porsche chairs shipped to customers in the spring of 1986. The #2A chair was offered in both a black painted version, as well as a stainless steel frame option. The design was intended as a "limited edition" of 100 units. 106 chairs were eventually produced for the American market. Approximately 65 of these chairs were in the black painted treatment as ours, with approximately another 35 in the stainless steel treatment. There were three chairs produced for the original Baker shipment in a bronze finish with bronze colored leather. The chair was also available in Germany as the IP 84S.
