For December we’ve chosen to highlight one of our newest designs, the Biltmore ® Louis XV Armoire. Making its debut during the October 2011 High Point Market, this stately piece now joins others in our licensed Biltmore® Chateau Reserve Collection of copyrighted furniture designs. With each piece, our design team has worked to reflect the hospitality and gracious living that defined the acclaimed Asheville, NC estate at the turn of the century.
This particular copyrighted furniture design takes its inspiration from the many pieces and architectural elements found throughout the estate’s lovely Louis XV Suite. Restored to its original splendor, this suite offers visitors the first opportunity to fully see the house as a family home and the Vanderbilts as parents. The Louis XV Room itself is perhaps the true heart of Biltmore. It served as birthplace of George and Edith Vanderbilt’s only daughter, Cornelia, in 1900. Years later, it was where Cornelia delivered her own two sons, George Henry Vanderbilt Cecil and William Amherst Vanderbilt Cecil in 1925 and 1928, respectively.
