About the ProductDesigned by Océane Delain, the Mellow sofa for Bernhardt Design was conceived by a desire for a traditional yet customizable piece of furniture that can be tailored to the individual needs of its users in form, function, and aesthetic. Mellow features a solid-maple platform frame with wood buttons attached to a system of nylon cords. Arranged in a geometric grid and connected to a series of 21 self-locking cam cleats, the cords allow one to tweak the sofa’s shape and improve its comfort. With integrated foam layers of varying densities, Mellow can morph its appearance but still return to its original form.

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.
