Pierre Paulin Bird's-Eye Maple and Walnut Inlay Executive Desk

About

Rare Pierre Paulin executive desk for Baker. Bird's-eye maple veneers inlaid with dark walnut in the signature motif for the Paulin Collection. Drawers are fitted to give a floating effect, and legs display a clean edge of stepped mitres. Very well made and heavy. Wood grain is exquisite, as are the solid brass double-square pulls.  In the mid-1980s, Baker retained Pierre Paulin to design a singular collection of furniture. Paulin stated he took inspiration from the interiors of the Elysee Palace that he had completed for Georges Pompidou and Francois Mitterand. The resulting venture proved costly, and only a rarefied few of the Paulin pieces were created. Measures: Chair space 28.5" H x 33" W.
