Not just for sitting, the Reid Collection (2007) invites you to watch movies, take a nap or surf on a laptop. Maximizing the enjoyment of downtime is something Jeffrey Bernett is passionate about since he spends a fair bit of his free time doing extreme sports, and he held nothing back when creating Reid with design partner Nicholas Dodziuk. Unlike sofas where you sit "on top" of the cushions, the experience of Reid is more of a "relaxed sit" thanks to down- and feather-wrapped foam. The back cushions are filled with a soft blend of down and feathers, the seat depths suit various lounging positions and the wide armrests offer support from elbow to wrist. Made in U.S.A.
This comfortable collection is upholstered with whole hides of the best leather, which means that there are very few seams.
A discreet base furthers the streamlined appearance.
Use this modular piece on its own or combine it with other Reid pieces to expand a sofa or sectional.
Kiln-dried, corner-blocked, double-doweled composite hardwood frame; Pirelli webbing back and seat suspension; high-resiliency foam wrapped in Featherblend™ fill (50% Ultima Supreme™ polyester fibers, 45% UltraClean™ duck feathers, 5% UltraClean™ duck down); Italian full-grain, full-aniline-dyed leather 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 >
