Yes, the Bertie is big and bold. However, with elegant lines and constrained cushioning providing an understated and considered aesthetic, so too is it surprisingly compact when viewed in person. 

At home amongst the modernist architectural movement, the Bertie fits beautifully among a palette of timber, concrete and metal tones. This modular lounge is not dramatic or ostentatious. Rather it is composed and clean-cut, with a comforting angular quality balanced by small details such as the inward curve of the backrest. In this way it can step beyond the realm of stark minimalism and into a world of depth and functional style. This style is undoubtedly helped by the size of the canvas. This is a lounge for those who don’t feel the need to constantly switch up cushions to meet passing trends.

Fine metal legs are balanced against the sumptuous upholstery, which is backed by a built to last framing structure and commercial quality foam. Available in a range of configurations to fit multiple spatial plans, and with an optional wool wrap between the foam and outer cover, the Bertie a no-fluff, all-style piece that is simple, straightforward, and happy to complement more ostentatious pieces with measured ease.
