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.”
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.

“Habersham has such a unique look. It reflects my own true design style – representing what I’d have in my own home. So that makes it easy to use Habersham in creating designs for clients.”
For Julie Mifsud, no design job is too small. It’s a business philosophy that’s served her well as she’s built her expansive design business and its loyal client base, which includes some of the Bay area’s biggest personalities.
It’s also what put her in touch with Habersham. At the time, a potential client contacted her to get her thoughts on a Wolfe Range with red knobs that he was thinking about installing in his kitchen. She drove an hour and forty-five minutes to his home to discuss the range selection. During the meeting she asked her client a lot of questions to learn more about his lifestyle, his design tastes and his hopes for the kitchen itself. Her client lived alone but Julie soon learned that his home would quickly fill up with grandchildren, family and friends during the holidays. She also learned that the kitchen was truly the heart of this home – where everyone gathered.

Inspired by a glorious time. Created to fit your life today.
The Chateau Reserve Collection, a collaboration between Habersham and Biltmore™, draws its inspiration from the entertainment and hospitality that defined the landmark Asheville, North Carolina estate at the turn of the century. The collection’s grand scale designs and accent furnishingsperfectly reflect the art, architecture, history and ambiance of the estate.
George Washington Vanderbilt, world-traveler, art aficionado and grandson of famed railroad industrialist Cornelius Vanderbilt, completed Biltmore House in 1895. The 250-room French Renaissance-style chateau, tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, was first and foremost a home. It was also an oasis for Vanderbilt’s family and friends to retreat from city life to a timeless world of elegance and refinement. Comforting, yet uncommon.
“Our vision at Habersham is to create furniture in keeping with the Vanderbilt vision — designs that enable the discerning individual to escape from everyday life,” explains Joyce Eddy , chairman and founder, Habersham. “The quality, artistic style and versatility of our Biltmore line invite homeowners to truly express their own sense of style.”
Biltmore ™ is George Vanderbilt’s personal expression of taste and eclectic design. A Ming vase may sit next to a Louis XVI footstool. Habershams’ creations bring that same mix of comfort and self-expression to anyone who wishes to express herself in her home and personal surroundings.
Like Biltmore Estate, Habersham provides an escape from the ordinary to the extraordinary, from the everyday to the legendary.
