October 22, 2011 – LENOIR, NC - In sync with rising social desires to connect with the natural world, the modern-spirited and organic Elements by Bernhardt collection debuts today at High Point Market.
The collection is built in quartered white oak veneers which acquire one-of-a-kind handmade looks and textures through complex techniques like wirebrushing and cerusing. Pieces are offered in one of two finishesâ€”a dusty Sand, or earthy midtone Bark. All pieces are hand-waxed for silky feel and visual depth.
Artisanal accents include hammered aged patinated iron knobs, textured bronzed metal bases, faceted iron nailheads, and faux mohair or fine aniline leather on upholstered chairs, benches, and bed frames.
Within the 40-sku whole home collection are these featured pieces:
