Nouveau Organic

Nature Puts It's Own Design into Refined Shapes

 

New introductions from Bernhardt are reimagining the rules about organic forms, taking their cue from the shapes and whorls of natural design. An abstract flow on each piece is achieved with stratified marble, “river stone” trapunto, faux bois, or églomisé, allowing the organic curves to take the lead. “Nature is the obvious influence in these designs,” says Heather Eidenmiller, director of brand development. “In each case, unique applications and crafted materials showcase the artistry of the natural world.”
