“I make design solutions based on the needs of the client and the conditions of the site or existing space.”
With an interest in furnishing and architecture, Jeffery Bruce Baker graduated as an architect and later established the namesake design firm in Atlanta, Georgia. Working on small furnishing projects since his school days and later working with design firms Jeffrey developed a sense of design that listened to the client and the site. Being actively involved in furniture design and manufacturing Jeffrey Bruce Baker Designs brings life to interior design projects. Custom made furniture plays a vital role in the firm’s renovation projects as they play a major role in the transition of the look and feel of the place.
