Pieces in our Biltmore ® Chateau Reserve collection draw their inspiration from the entertainment and hospitality that defined the landmark Asheville, NC estate at the turn of the century.  The collection’s grand scale designs and accent furnishings perfectly reflect the art, architecture, history and ambiance of the estate.

Among the newest designs includes the Vanderbilt King Bed (shown), which was inspired by the Sheraton Room at Biltmore House.  Its headboard, footboard,  posts and canopy are neoclassical in style, creating a large- scale image of grandeur. The piece is named for Biltmore’s visionary creator George Vanderbilt and the twin style is named for his daughter, Cornelia.  Look for a new design this spring!
