In 2004, Barlas Baylar founded Hudson Furniture Gallery, a concept design showroom in the Meatpacking District, to showcase large-scale, sculptural furniture and lighting designs, handmade by an expert artisan team located in a New York atelier.
Always inspired by the art, design and architecture of the art deco era, Baylar has delved into studies of modern classics to inform his unique design sensibilities. As a homage to the great works of iconic sculptors Brancusi, Noguchi, Jean Michel Frank and Ruhlman, Barlas Baylar as artists continue to evolve each collection into complex new forms through the use of inventive architectural materials.
Barlas Baylar continues to challenge how masculine and feminine forms meet to become a modern, functional sculpture, and one of a kind collectables, with his creation of dynamically proportioned, wood, lacquer and bronze tables.
Each Hudson design is hand-sculpted in New York for a one of a kind provenance, intended to be shared by generations to come, with many hours invested in each dedicated design, prior to its leaving the atelier and reaching the showroom.
At Hudson Furniture, the company has witnessed tremendous growth through Barlas Baylar’s creative direction and management, resulting in new worldwide showrooms, creative partnerships; including Alexander McQueen, The World of Interiors and Tom Ford, 2014 Oscars, among others.
“We put high regard and value on these trees by turning them into pieces of enduring art instead of leaving them out to decay.” Barlas Baylar, Hudson Furniture Inc. founder and designer.
