BERNHARDT FURNITURE

Berhardt furniture has been around since 1889, a pillar in the furniture design community.  I have an appreciation for family and all that goes into developing brand loyalty. Its one thing to buy an already established company but to build one from the ground up over generations of time..I respect the dedication and loyalty to the company name and brand that you can expect from this type of company.  Bernhardt has long since pioneered before many companies of its kind were even in existance.  Just recently returning from the prestigious High Point Market Design Bloggers Tour,  I saw exclusive furniture lines and their ready to show 2018 new releases. Among the many lines there representing their best,  Bernhardt did not dissapoint;) Designers know that Bernhardt is our go to source for unique furniture and casegoods. Somehow this amazing company has managed to reinvent themselves year after year. Being with the Design Bloggers Tour this year, we got extra special treatment. Upon entering the Bernhardt showroom this year, I was immediately distracted by the great styling in a few of the bedrooms. Grey walls….black furniture…What?!?!? Unheard of!!! *wink *wink

I wanted to share a bit about Bernhardt and their various lines. Headquartered in Highpoint North Carolina, nationwide and spreading to overseas as well, Bernhardt has become a staple household name. Led by 4th generation family, Alex Bernhardt, the company has branched to 4 thriving divisions. Bernardt Residential, originating in 1889, is their whole home and case goods furniture line. It represents fabric and leather upholstered seating. This is their mainstream line and can be found at many global retailers and designers at more mainstream pricing. Bernhardt Design' was launched in 1981. This is a fun and unique line of contemporary office furniture and textiling goods. They can be purchased through architectural design firms. Bernhardt Interiors' one of my personal favorites, released in 2008, is a unique , whole home collection of high end ultra customizeable goods. I appreciate this line for the ecclectic options that make great statement pieces for interior design! Bernhardt Hospitality' most recently evolved in 2009, is their commercial furniture line. This line was designed for travel and mainly shown in fine hotels.This line is available through architectural design firms. Bernhardt furniture has received numerous awards for product design excellence, in diverse market segments. The company has earned AHFA’s environmental excellence award for corporate performance and place their unwavering values in their high business standards, elite furniture artistry, maintaining local community efforts and honoring the generations of local artisians that have gone before them.
