Kravet Furniture introduces its second collection with renowned designer Michael Berman, launching this fall at High Point Market. Featuring a sophisticated assortment of living and dining pieces, this collection is an artful balance of curvilinear forms and Brutalist architecture.
“This collection unites my previous successes with new designs for a wonderfully balanced and decidedly 21st century direction,” says Berman.
Among the many incredibly detailed silhouettes is the striking Frank cabinet. Designed as an anchor to a room, the Frank cabinet functions beautifully as a bar cabinet or storage. The exterior is inspired by the architectural layering seen in Mid-Century Brutalism with refined lightness. The layered wood creates dimension and adds texture and depth. The interior of the cabinet is illuminated by two recessed LED lights and a softly reflective mirrored back. Brass integrated handles and brass boots add a warmth of metal to this piece, which is offered in two-tone wood finishes.
The Juniper sofa also has a beautiful Mid-Century vibe with generous interior seating that cradles in its corners. This sofa has a lovely exposed wood frame, which accentuates its curved silhouette. Pairing with this sofa are two swivel chairs, Garrett and Sheridan, both versatile frames with a modern flare. The Florence chaise features a stacked pancake seat and matching ottoman that opens a plethora of design opportunities.
Berman says he created the Adams cocktail table to be reminiscent of a modified painter’s palette. This unique piece features a soft curved shaped oak top with asymmetrically placed brass inlaid ovals over oval brass legs. Another versatile grouping, the Montrose occasional tables, have an organic shaped oak top with trip-post brass bases. Berman says they can be used as a duo or individually to enhance an interior.
Also included in this collection are two new dining tables - both with a notable 1970s flair - along with three new dining chairs that pair perfectly for an elegant vignette.
Michael Berman II epitomizes the new casual lifestyle that interior designers and architects are enthusiastic about in their own creations coast to coast. “Reinforcing the importance of details, scale, integration and necessity for ultimate comfort is my main focus with this collection,” says Berman.
Michael Berman Modern Furniture will be available starting fall 2019 in Kravet showrooms. For more information, visit www.kravet.com.
