The Bernhardt Soho Luxe Home Collection – Part 2

by Star Furniture on August 17, 2016

After introducing the exquisite Bernhardt Furniture Soho Luxe Collection in our last post, we felt the need to dedicate a secondary post that takes a deeper look into some of the new collection’s unique and exciting pieces. 🙂

For starters, each and every piece within the Soho Luxe Collection is the result of meticulous craftsmanship. As you learned in our last blog post, it’s an unparalleled collection 😉 – with a combination of stylistic elements that make it both eclectic and perfectly gorgeous. Additionally, the materials used to produce Soho give it a distinctive, classic contemporary touch.

It’s really a whole experience seeing the collection in person, especially as all the pieces link together through a an array of elements to establish a new traditional and transitional style.

For example, this first piece is absolutely stunning:

The Soho Luxe Upholstered Bed features a rare combination of upholstery panels and side rails with a wood-framed headboard and footboard. Classic shapes and geometric design also play into the structure of this lovely bed, a repeated element that we’ll see throughout the collection.

It’s straight edge frame and square form definitely know how to make a statement. These elements impart a sense of balance and harmony, which are instilled, once again, across the decorative nailhead trim and Greek-key patterns on the upholstery panels.

Similarly, the Soho Luxe Courtney Sofa takes full advantage of this beautiful nailhead studded trim design. 🙂 It even runs along the back of the sofa, which makes it a wonderful addition to an open space!

The Soho Luxe Metal Chair’s oversized, bright stainless steel design is also inspired by this prominent Greek-key pattern, a historically influential architectural symbol representing balance and unity.

The chair as a whole emanates such unity, through the precision and placement of the Greek key details coming together with the plush, neutral-toned cushions. This Soho Luxe Metal Chair is truly an artistic creation all on it’s own. 🙂

Now, these next few pieces are equally as striking, but exhibit stylistic influences from completely different eras!
A bit of an unexpected twist, wouldn’t you agree? ;P

For example, the Soho Luxe Three-Tiered Tall Chest [link] displays a bold, geometrical structure that resembles industrial era architecture, such as the Empire State Building, whose style is characterized by its congruous shapes, symmetry, and rectilinear forms.

At the same time, Asian influences appear to originate from it’s solid stainless steel base and drawers stacked in groups, reserving the classic simplicity and solid effect of the style. You can see this same base used in the Soho Luxe Bachelors Chest:

Additionally, the bright silver pulls of the Bachelors Chest drawers are unique in shape and create eye-catching accents to this glamorous collection. The same sophistication and brightness is evident in the custom knobs and hardware found throughout the Soho collection, whose combination of acrylic and metal uniquely accessorize the furniture like a piece of fine jewelry. 🙂

Last but not least, another unique combination that’s just amazing is the Soho Luxe 5-Piece Round Dining Group:

This dining group includes a round, polished wooden table surrounded by upholstered chairs, whose fluid outline flows together with the grainy, fluid texture of the wood. Such a texture comes from the gorgeous white ash burl fancy face veneer design evident across the collection, which is created from an inlay of smaller, decorative wooden squares.These elements and textures create movement between pieces, and connect them with one another to create a single elegantly refined ensemble.

I could honestly go on and on about this collection! Now that you’re a little bit more informed about most pieces of the Bernhardt Soho Luxe collection, you should definitely take the time to swing by the store! Seeing it in person is a must, because words just don’t do it any justice. 🙂

Can’t wait to share more with you on our next post! Once again, don’t forget to pass this piece along and share with your friends! <3
