French Contemporary Styling


This particular trend combines a fresh sense of style with a nod to the luxe lifestyle. Classic designs, with a 1940’s contemporary French influence are updated with a modern flair. Pieces are dramatic, yet refined with an abundance of striking details. With the Jet Set collection from Bernhardt, making a personal statement- one that exhibits glamorous taste and modern sensibility – can be carried out with relative ease.

As with proper wardrobe, every detail counts. Lines created by diamond, chain-link, and sunburst patterns are showcased with clean forms and softened by subtle curves, creating memorable pieces.




In terms of hardware – Gold once again takes center stage in forms of solid brass hardware, chain-link and rope twist pulls, as well as hand-hammered disks, evoke the feel of fine jewelry. Classic round pulls are also in use, exhibiting a refined restraint.


Quilted accents, leather-wrapped door fronts, embossed crocodile leather, and gold nail head trim set the standard for stylish extravagance. Brass metal, gold accents, and mirrored panels also combine to add interest.
