Born in Paris in 1959, Baron studied at one of France’s best art schools, École des Arts Appliqués. At 17, he went to work for his father, who was a graphic artist and the art director of several French newspapers. He moved to New York, developing a career as one of the leading creative directors of our time. Vanity Fair magazine has called him “the most sought-after creative director in the world. Great names in fashion flock to him to bring a certain cool, understated elegance to their public images.” In April 2001, Baron debuted his first residential furniture collection at Milan’s International Furniture Fair. He has continued designing furniture with a philosophy of simplicity, elegance, and luxury, all done with the highest attention to precision and quality.
