Petal Ex-Display

I have designed a lot of sofas in my time, some more successful than others but there is no doubt in my mind that the Petal is the prettiest. From its petal shaped arms and the gentle curve of its continuous outside arc, to the single button in each of its back cushions and the delicate turn of its conical feet it really is lovely to look at from any angle. This beauty does not come easy as the Petal is the very devil to build demanding the highest levels of skill and attention to detail from our framemakers and upholsterers. The result is a sofa that is not only very comfortable to sit on but also very comfortable in its skin and able to carry off almost any fabric from the strictest of grey wools to the softest of pink velvets.

Due to a physical limitation that prevents him from blowing his own trumpet Richard Baker is quite possibly the best furniture designer you’ve never heard of. Born in 1961, the year of the E-Type Jaguar and the son of a renowned English furniture maker, it was obvious from an early age that Richard had a burning desire not to do what his father did. However, after gaining a bunch of 5's in his CSE's, failing to finish box construction at technical college and getting fired from a men’s clothing emporium for wearing the wrong trousers his father decided he needed a course correction and put him to work in his factory sanding an infinite number of chair legs. So enamoured was Richard of his dusty new vocation that he ran away to Australia and thrived as a low achiever, he didn't look back, until he did. Having learnt the wisdom of actors, Richard returned to England and accepted his father's invisible cloak of credibility and so attired wrestled some cash from a hapless bank and with his wife Libby opened Rume, a furniture store with Richard as the creative director, which is a made up title that people without any qualifications use. Coming to terms with his imposter syndrome but not overcoming it Richard was surprised to discover that other people thought he was actually rather good at designing furniture, so he kept doing it and still does.
