The New Glamour

Simple Classical Shapes, Embellished by the Light
Today, Bernhardt introduces 100+ pieces with an inventive kind of new glamour. The idea of taking a very simple classical style of furniture and adding an interesting embellishment—often with a material that captures and reflects light—creates modern and truly transitional designs that can stand the test of time.
 
“Mixing historic reference with modern embellishment and light brings a new kind of energy and glamour to furniture,” says Heather Eidenmiller, director of brand development. “These pieces are designed to bring something to enhance life;they’re emotionally engaging.”
