Pierre Paulin Bird's-Eye Maple and Walnut Parquetry Writing Table
Exceedingly rare Pierre Paulin reception desk or writing table for Baker. Bird's-eye maple veneers inlaid with dark walnut in the signature motif for the Paulin collection. Very well-made and heavy with exquisite wood grain. Could also work as a small dining table. 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 Élysée Palace that he had completed for Georges Pompidou and François Mitterrand. The resulting venture proved costly and only a rarefied few of the Paulin pieces were created.
