Vivid Drawings = Expressive Accent Furniture
Trend: Classic Strong Lines
April 20, 2013
This Spring's fashion runways provide a glimpse into how many people will be dressing their homes – using innovative classic shapes with sharp lines.
Today, Bernhardt introduces a broad range of finely drawn accent pieces which serve to give a new look of refinement and proportion to the home.
"The essence of design is the line," says Ron Fiore, Bernhardt creative director. "The most important piece in your room is going to be one with a strong outline or silhouette. It announces you as confident, and refreshes the things you already have."
