About the ProductSmooth forms, balanced proportions and clean lines characterize the sculptural modular lounge components of Gaia. Arms visually swoop into a sculpted outer shell extending across the frame while cradling molded-foam cushions. Gentle lines repeat in the polished aluminum legs that turn and twist to mimic the contours of the seat. Gaia is available in 15 components to create 24 different configurations in most leathers or fabrics.
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.
