Bernhardt Introduces: Textured
Wild animal skin + bone, heavy natural fibers.
October 13, 2012
Bernhardt brings the spirit of nature into city living this Fall with chic natural and wild textures. These nature surfaces and emulations – animal skin, bone, heavy natural fiber weaves – are engineered into couture for home. It’s all about craftmanship.
“Natural, wild textures and craft suggest a well-traveled life,” says Ron Fiore, Bernhardt creative director. “These timeless pieces are a great background for collecting.”
