The Pagani Collection
With each piece bearing his own personal touch, European Stately Homes designs are one of the prominent collections of the BAKER brand brought together under the stewardship of Sir Wakefield, international antiques expert.
Sir Wakefield, an English Baron, also owns the 800-year-old Chillingham Castle. The Chillingham Castle, which lay in ruins when he purchased it from the Aristocratic Grey family, is home to a large collection of antiques. Wakefield, who has a Master’s from Cambridge University, specializes in antique furniture and historic restorations. He worked for London Christie's for a while and then took up the role of Art Director at an Antiques Company.
Made up of reproductions of rare antiquities dating from the 17th century that featured prominently in English, Irish, Scottish and Russian Castles and Palaces, the European Stately Homes collection contains exquisite pieces of furniture, produced using special and historical craftsmanship techniques true to their original.
The collection proves that perfection cannot be restricted to style and that true elegance and luxury can last for centuries in different cultures and lifestyles. The design works in the collection do not look out of place when placed in a modern context, looking just as relevant as they do in their original environments.
