From trade and shelter magazines to antiques and architecture, I’m always looking for sources of inspiration for our newest designs. One resource that never fails to deliver is Biltmore® Estate. As Habersham is a licensee, I look to the art, architecture, history and hospitality that defined this landmark Asheville, NC estate at the turn of the century to find my inspiration for the pieces I create for our Biltmore ® Chateau Reserve Collection .
One of the new designs we introduced during the recent October 2011 High Point Market is the Biltmore ® Sideboard, shown here. For this particular copyrighted furniture design, I chose to reflect some of the styles and design lines found on a number of pieces found in the home’s Sheraton Room on the second floor.
If you haven’t been to Biltmore ® yet, I encourage you to do so –especially as we head into the holiday season as it’s particularly lovely this time of year. To learn more, visit www.biltmore.com
