Standing there I thought,'why is Mr. Pollack in the Bernhardt Designs booth?' Well, Jerry Helling, President of US-headquartered Bernhardt Designs turns out to be a huge fan of Mr. Pollack and he tracked him down. Even though Mr. Pollack has not designed chairs in at-least 30 years, the result of their Bernhardt-Pollack collaboration resulted in the magnificent CP lounge chair. What a great looking chair! It features loop-stitching with hand–quilted panels of leather, suede or felt, supported by a modern polished stainless steel frame. I loved the black stitching on the edges of the lime green felt! Like its predecessor, it is pure sculpture!
