sturdy mortise and tenon joints. Because corners are pressure points
that must withstand stress and wear, Bernhardt craftsmen securely

- Bernhardt frames utilize engineered,
multi-ply hardwood plywood as well as some 4/4" and 5/4"
hardwoods. (Certain frames may also incorporate formed plywood in
order to achieve certain frame contours.) All exposed wood frames
employ 5/4" mixed hardwoods.

Furniture Designer's prestigious Pinnacle Awards, Bernhardt's design
teams are among the best in the industry, creating dramatic
