About the ProductDesigned for use in flexible environments requiring reconfigurations and easy storage, options include a variety of sizes of rectangular tables that may be used with a corner top to complete configuration. These configurations include, but are not limited to, u-shape and open conference. Serif table tops are available in either a wood veneer with a standard black underside or in a laminate with a black laminate underside. Grain will run the length of the table in veneer applications. Polished aluminium bases are positioned in either an edge mount or an inset mount that allows users to be seated on all four sides of the table. An optional modesty panel is available in laminate, wood veneer or anodized aluminium finish panel. Tables fold and nest for compact storage. Turning a handle, located underneath the table top, in a clockwise motion releases the top to fold. A gas spring allows the top to rest gently when folding or closing.
The BrandMore about this Brand
Orphaned at 13, John Bernhardt jumped a box-car to Oregon hoping to become a government surveyor. He returned home three years later to pursue a career as a timber cutter. After buying a sawmill he saw the opportunity to use timber to make solid oak bedroom furniture. Pretty soon folks in Chicago and New York City started buying this furniture for their homes. And so in 1889 the Bernhardt Furniture Company was born in North Carolina. Berhardt’s skill was in leveraging the area’s plentiful supply of beautiful timbers, and local woodworking skills. Never one to do things by halves, he opened his factory with 25 employees.
