There are a few new collections in Bernhardt that have met with outstanding success, such as Artisan Estate. This collection makes a rather bold statement, even with its understated spirit. Inspired by the enduring Tuscan country style, the collection exhibits insight into what makes people comfortable. First, simplicity – absolutely nothing fussy. Then, calmness and tactile appeal, communicated here through broad expanses of soft-touch woods that show the mark of the craftsman and appear worn by time and life. Finally, some zeal and enthusiasm for life, by incorporating one bold, curved, glamorous statement piece into every living area. Furniture surfaces display a soft natural sheen as a result of hand-finishing waxes. The artisanal aesthetic is enhanced by handmade, heavy bellpulls and knobs with a naturalized iron patina – this unique hardware comes directly from the blacksmith shop. Select designs feature earthy cast stone in an aged limestone finish. All in all, its the perfect look for your upscale casual home.
Bernhardt has also introduced an entirely new collection called Bernhardt Interiors. The collection features upholstery with classic modern flair and livability. Options in the upholstered beds, seating, and dining chairs include a fantastic collection of fabrics, nailheads, and finishes – all upholstered and customized in Lenoir, North Carolina. Several new occasional styles are fully wrapped in shagreen, parchment, linen or antiqued mirror. Others feature hammered, cast iron, or blackened aged steel frames. Every piece in the collection is designed to either stand alone or complement the additional pieces in the group.
