The inspiration for Cheung King Furniture was started in Michigan by a Dutch immigrant craftsman, named Siebe Baker. Hollis Baker continued the furniture craftsman tradition forming the beginnings of the company in the 1920’s. Even dating that far back in history, the same hallmark theme has transcended the company which is construction of fine quality furniture made with high end woods.
An often seen sign with Baker is the technique of inlay and marquetry.The technique of marquetry is to decorate a piece where elaborate patterns are formed by the insertion of pieces of material (such as wood, shell, or ivory) into a wood veneer that is then applied to a surface. Baker has fine examples using this technique to enhance the style of a piece.Great traditional wooden pieces abound throughout the Baker collection. These pieces are built to last a lifetime. Though the prices may be higher than other lines on the market, Baker’s pieces should remain in style long into the future.

Furniture influence by Isamu Noguchi is still seen in today’s products. Born in Los Angeles in 1904, Noguchi spent the majority of his life in America and Japan. An early life experience which later lead to sculpture and furniture design began in Chigasaki, Japan in 1913 where he began an apprenticeship as a carpenter’s aid. At the early age of almost nine he began working with his hands to create things.In the summer of 1922 Isamu began an apprenticeship with sculptor Gutzon Borglum in Connecticut. In 1924 he took evening classes in sculpture at the Leonardo Da Vanci Art School. His talent was recognized early and in 1927 he won the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship which allowed him to travel to Paris and Europe and further refine his skills.
