Style Icon - Tony Duquette

Tony Duquette, considered by many an American design icon, was discovered by Elsie de Wolfe in 1941.  Known for his exuberant and colorful style, his designs are still available through Baker Furniture.

BIOMORPHIC CONSOLE
BIOMORPHIC CONSOLE

Considered one of Duquette's most inspired works, the Biomorphic Console was originally designed for the Charles and Palmer Ducommun Bel Air residence in the 1960s. Impeccably recreated by Baker, the console is cast in resin in three separate pieces, then fabricated together to produce its undulating form, which is finished in Silver Gilt or Gold Leaf. The crystal clear glass top, although anchored in place, gives the illusion that it is just barely perching on top of the base. Circa 1965.
