The Bernard sofa is a generously proportioned sofa with a deep seat and softly sloping arms and back offering a comfortable and relaxed sit.
Its relatively low height and clean lines mean that, despite its generous curves, it does not intrude into space but remains calmly unobtrusive. As one of our very first collaborations with Simon Pengelly, Bernard has become a Modus classic.
Simon Pengelly started making furniture in his father's workshop when he was eight, going on to win national competitions for cabinet making. The practical experience and an affinity with materials and processes, gained from an early age, are central to his design work and service.
"Understanding materials and manufacturing techniques is fundamental to my approach, combined with a passionate desire to create accessible production furniture with 'soul'. Understanding manufacturing culture and possessing knowledge of these companies markets is the only way to effectively work with manufacturers."
