Bernhardt: Spring Occasional

Simplified classic structures with elan appear in Bernhardt's occasional furniture collection today.

Pieces manage to be spare and cozy at the same time - a balance characteristic of the collection as a whole. Like a modernist who enjoys the European traditional aesthetic, this approach brings the best of both worlds. These neo-traditional forms will please today and will fit in and feel at home forever.

The collection includes 45 new skus, in nine new style groups. Some forms are understated with sophisticated relaxed wood finishes, such as naturally finished walnut veneers.

Others styles are composed in mixed materials and constructions such as full leather wraps, woven or embossed leather panels, new weathered and layered specialty finishes, and two-tone old world finish combinations.

Featured pieces:

Roma Cocktail Table 533-021. Parisian Past - Old world form and construction, simplified and modernized. Floating pegged top. Two-tone finish on pine solids, aged and waxed surfaces. W58 D28 H19 in. Also available in this style: console, square end.

Sicily Cocktail Table 542-011. Slim Cut and Smart - This table looks as if it might have been found in a London antique shop, but with an elegant modern edge. Fully wrapped in snakeskin embossed leather, rounded edges, nailhead outlines. W38 D38 H18 in. Also available: console, rectangle cocktail, end.

Caymus Cocktail Table 543-015. Dressy, But Not Too - Designed in the way of modern easy living, but formal enough to pass muster when you want to impress. Flat-cut walnut veneers, laid in a radiating pattern on the top. The depth of finish is extraordinary. W50 D50 H18 in. Also available: a smaller round cocktail, end, bowfront media chest.

Bernhardt's spring occasional collection will be available to consumers in Fall 2012.
