Artful Innovation in Metal, Mattes, and Stone


Individuality and innovation herald one new design direction introduced today at Bernhardt. 

These new pieces demonstrate artful thinking and new ways of interpreting glamour. They are worked up in bright silver, swirling cast aluminum, charred patinas, or rippling stratified stone.

“We think these are confident, individual, sculptural looks,” says  Heather Eidenmiller, director of brand development. “They will appeal to people who appreciate free expression and luxe materials.”
