Tony Duquette at Baker

I was at the Laguna Design Center for Spring Market the other day where Baker was displaying their newest collection of reproduction Tony Duquette pieces.  I could not have been more excited!  Tony Duquette referred to his style as "Natural Baroque."  He was known for what most of us try to achieve today, which is mixing custom pieces with ancient and modern, and fine and decorative art.  His vision continues to live on today via Tony Duquette, Inc. which is overseen by his friend Hutton Wilkinson who began working with Tony when he was only a teenager.  
"Beauty, not luxury, is what I value." - Tony Duquette

Can you even believe that these are lamps?  They are an extravagant 48" high.
