Habersham welcomed a number of new additions to its American Treasures ® and Biltmore ® Chateau Reserve Collections during the Spring 2012 High Point Market. Among them:
BILTMORE CORNELIA’S CLOISTER BED — This piece was far and away the “Hit of High Point .” The reactions — gasps of surprise and delight from dealers and designers — as they came into the room where the piece was displayed during market, were fun to watch.
The newest addition to Habersham’s licensed Biltmore ® Chateau Reserve Collection, this twin bed design was inspired by the Sheraton Room at Biltmore House in Asheville, NC. The Cloister Bed is neoclassical in style and shares a headboard and canopy, creating a large scale image of grandeur. The wood is indicative of early 19th century architectural cloisters, in which covered walks in monasteries, colleges and cathedrals had one walled side and one open colonnade. The piece is named for Cornelia Vanderbilt, only child of Biltmore’s visionary creator George Vanderbilt and his wife Edith. Cornelia grew up at Biltmore and was truly, as the estate’s website describes, a “princess of a 250-room castle and its 8000-acre kingdom.”
In addition to this addition to the Biltmore ® group, we also added a number of new designs to our American Treasures ® Collection of copyrighted furniture designs. American Treasures® pieces take their inspiration from classic styles that have been updated and simplified. Adding to their appeal, American Treasures® pieces are customizable. New designs include
