ADVANCE , N.C. – At this year’s BDNY, Beaufurn will debut two statement-making seats and update offerings to its classic French Bistro collection.

The new frame offerings include the contemporary and classic styles of Kali and Sophie. Sophisticated but built to work, they are on the cutting edge of next season’s seating chic.

Kali -- Modern, light and airy, Kali is the go-to for casual contemporary chic. Available as a side or armchair and barstool, Kali features a flexible, perforated seat back of molded technopolymer in colorways to complement any decor. Twelve colorful combinations mix frame colors of white, gray or tan with seats in burgundy, charcoal, gray, lime, ivory, sky blue, white or tan. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor commercial use, the side chair and armchair stand 32.25 inches tall and 22.25 inches wide and are stackable up to five high.

Sophie -- Curvy and sophisticated, the Sophie side chairepitomizes dining comfort. The elegantly curved Greek klismos back and generous seat, both plushly upholstered, redefine this historical chair, available in any one of Beaufurn’s graded fabrics or COM. Splayed wood legs come in eight color options from light cherry to rich mahogany. At home in any upscale application and measuring 33 inches high and 24.25 inches wide, this seating option is perfect for hotels, restaurants and country clubs.

French Bistro -- Inspired by European cafes, the French Bistro chair is a perennial favorite and Beaufurn’s signature seating piece for good reason. Debuting two new weave patterns at BDNY, French Bistro offers a new twist on a classic design and adds instant elegance to banquet spaces, outdoor patios, bistros and lounges. These beautiful indoor-outdoor chairs offer a timeless design, and are expertly hand-crafted in Italy with a Malacca cane frame and durable polyamide seat and back.

In addition to nine existing weave patterns ranging from Petits Points to Chevron, Beaufurn introduces two new weaves.

+ Hachure – a crosshatched, diamond pattern with a diagonal weave using three colorways

+ Accord – a modified chevron design with horizontally oriented arrows

All are available in 17 colorways that can be combined for infinite creativity in color variance. Weaves are available in either polyamide material or Rilsan, a renewable source made from castor oil beans.
