Lively & Bright

The New Modernism: Lighter, Cleaner, Ultra Sparkly

Today, Bernhardt introduces the look of a new era. The brighter, lighter, more contemporary aesthetic upholds and pushes forward many ideals of modernism: the utopian potential of modern living, technical innovation, simply and boldly formed designs, bold patterns with abstract qualities, and lots of metallic shine.

What really steals the show is the energetic 45-piece Soho Luxe collection. It’s a case of opposites attracting—cool mirror with warm brass, honeyed burl with bright bling, saucy coral with demure ivory or colorless acrylic. These razzle dazzle numbers burst with energy, luxury, and beauty.

“These pieces will literally brighten your day,” says Heather Eidenmiller, director of brand development. “They’re swank, luxe and high style, but with a more refined sensibility and a kind of optimism or lightness of touch.”
