April 21, 2012 - A trend straight from Spring fashion week appears in Bernhardt's upholstered seating collection today.
The look is of softly tailored luxury dressing: simple silhouettes, soft colors, layering of textures, architecture, tone-on-tone and subtle wovens, all lightened up with fresh accents. It's like menswear but in a much softer approach - a welcome update.
High end heavyweight body fabrics come in neutral platinum, ivory, charcoal and graphite tones. Constructions include nubby heathered weaves, sweater cable knits, linear chenilles applied on the diagonal, velvets, fine woven block plaid, faux mohair and heavy pebbled pure aniline leathers.
Pastels and cupcake colors are the go-to accent colors of the season: mint green, baby blue, aqua blue. Like a Spring scarf that brings freshness to an outfit, toss pillows are worked up in soft stripes, botanicals and tribal patterns.
Rochelle Sofa B3757. Aged, Romantic, Fresh - Warm aged and weathered effects - one of today's most prominent trends - are evidenced in a heavy woven linen bodycloth and a Portobello finish wood frame. The monochromatic layers allow you to see the tailored silhouette. This is a character piece for a room, an open invitation to breathe a sigh and relax. W95 D42 H38.
Brunswick Sectional B6791/B6792. Not Too Structured - A two-tone body-cloth provides texture, color and an incredibly soft hand. The color palette - greige and aqua blue - is inspired by current trends in apparel. Assorted pillows contribute to the comfort and color. Double scallops soften the shelter arm. This sectional is easy on the eye, and on the body.
Detail - Dexter Sofa B4927. Skyblue and Charbrown - A metropolitan color palette of charbrown (finely woven heathered charcoal and brown) on a track arm sofa, completed by toss pillows in an icy blue and black overscale tribal print. This is leading edge style and fashion. W96 D403/4 H351/2 in.
Callie Chair 2202L. Cocktail Casual - Retro inspired barrel chair. Polished stainless steel rail leg and cradle around the frame. Plump upholstery. Carbon colored, pure aniline leather with a weathered soft patina. W32 D311/2 H29 in. Also available in fabric.
Bernhardt's spring upholstery collection will be available to consumers in Fall 2012.
