Raleigh (2009) is a comfortable collection that draws from midcentury Danish design. It features an exposed solid wood frame that wraps around the back (be sure to click on additional views above to see it) to support the seating area while lending visual lightness and satisfying tension to the whole. Unlike other exposed-frame collections that force overly upright sitting positions, Raleigh is designed with a carefully canted seatback for a more natural way of situating yourself as you relax and unwind. We chose to work with Jeffrey Bernett and Nicholas Dodziuk on this project because of the importance they place on people – how they move, interact, live and, most of all, sit. The Raleigh Collection received Interior Design magazine’s top honor for 2010 in the residential lounge category. Made in U.S.A.
Back cushion has removable cover for cleaning.
Kiln-dried, corner-blocked hardwood frame; unidirectional web suspension; high-density, high-resiliency polyurethane foam seat cushions with Dacron® wrap; Poly-fil®-, feather- and down-blend back cushions; solid walnut external frame; fabric upholstery.
With his commitment to function and simplicity and a singular attention to manufacturing detail Jeffrey Bernett has won accolades in a range of disciplines, including architecture, interior design, residential and office furniture, lighting, graphic design, transportation design and fashion. His very first furniture collection, presented at the 1996 International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York, received the Editor's Award for "Best of Show."
Bernett initially entered college to pursue a degree in business, then altered his course to undertake studies in furniture design in England. Along the way, he deepened his understanding of mechanics and manufacturing processes. The combination of design, business and manufacturing expertise has contributed to Bernett's stunning success as a multi-disciplinary consultant. In 2002, he established Consultants for Design Strategy (CDS) in New York. Read more >
