So, I know this is a little late...but I always say better late than never. I just found this vid on YouTube. Hoping Jerry will do the same this year at ICFF. Check out the other videos posted on ICFF.com's website.

For some, the sectional sofa brings back bad memories of a giant glossy vinyl remote-control swallower circa 1982. Patrick Jouin’s Item, above, elegantly reimagines the often not-so-stylish sectional genre.
Mr. Jouin, a Paris-based designer, created a series of 10 free-form, angular components that vary in shape and height and undulate, rising and falling like pieces of sculpture. They can be combined in multiple ways — and you don’t need all 10 to make a sofa.
Available in a range of colors and fabrics, starting at about $4,000. For information or to order: Bernhardt Design, 58 West 40th Street (Avenue of the Americas), (212) 997-6600, bernhardtdesign.com.

Adding to Trocmé's success with Bernhardt Design, Allée has been featured in Interior Design magazines "Best of the Year; 2009". It's simple elegance, even with its design complexities, makes it a great accent piece for a variety of styles. Available in a wide range of stains or fresh painted finishes, it is sure to make a splash this year and years to come. Look for a new piece to be introduced from Suzanne this spring at ICFF & Milan Furniture Fair. Each year, she seems to knock it out of the proverbial park or Allée.
