When Lenoir, North Carolina's Bernhardt Furniture Company began preparations for its 125th anniversary, they set out to completely reimagine a variety of classic pieces of American furniture. In order to get a fresh take on American classics, they chose to enlist three European pros to get the job done.
What Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance (French), Ross Lovegrove (Welsh) and Jephson Robb (Scottish) came up with was a Winsdor rocker unlike any you've ever seen.
