Creating a sophisticated look while maintaining a casual comfort is the goal of Marquesa, a neo-traditional collection by Bernhardt. With classic forms and contemporary finishes, it delivers grandeur and warmth to any living space. While European elements are distinctly recognizable, Marquesa carves out its own modern path; oak solids and veneers carry a low-sheen Gray Cashmere finish, while poplar solids and maple veneers feature a silver trimmed Moonscape finish for a rustic modern feel.
Sleek forms are paired with delicate shapes, evidence of Marquesa’s graceful restraint. A fretwork motif is present throughout the collection, with metalover wood, glass, and antiqued mirror. Hardware in a blackened silver finish works flawlessly with accents such as metal rosettes,velvet fabrics, buttonless tufting, and silver leaf eglomise.
This unique mix of finishes, materials and fabrics combines to create an appealing earthy palette. In the end, Marquesa by Bernhardt is a complex collection, one that exudes luxury while remaining elegantly understated.
