October 22, 2011 – LENOIR, NC - This season, Bernhardt demonstrates how to bring ultra sophistication and a hint of fresh drama into the family room, introducing 22 skus of upholstered seating and 27 pieces of occasional furniture in the new classics viewpoint.
Seating style is all about tailoring, texture, clean lines and shapesâ€”then adding dramatic bits of deep saturated color, bright mirror metal, playful bold graphics, or high glam pleating, tufting, and draping.
New classics occasional introductions are designed to be warm, familiar, and suggestive of having been acquired over timeâ€”with an element of freshness. Elements include bright nickel foot caps, blackened workshop metals, and etched organic surfaces.
