Habersham Custom Cabinetry - Veranda March | April 2013We’ll be showcasing some of our newest furniture and cabinetry designs in Veranda magazine.  Our ad, shown here, will run in the March | April 2013 issue.

As you can see, the ad spotlights some of our custom cabinetry capabilities for the kitchen and great room.  Blending clean lines and classic styling, the light, airy style of the kitchen cabinetry  is carried out on a wall mount hood, integrated refrigeration panels with mirror accents, kitchen island and more.  The look is echoed on other cabinetry also shown, including a fireplace mantle and bookcases.

The middle shot also shows a partial view of our Biltmore Grand Approach Entryway, which provides a stunning frame around any room entrance.  The design  takes its inspiration from the architectural elements of the famed North Carolina estate.  With curios on either side offering lights, adjustable wood framed glass shelves and drawers, the Biltmore Grand Approach Entryway, like all of our cabinetry,   can be customized to meet your space and style needs.

December 11th, 2012

PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR 2013 - 17-5641 EmeraldHere at Habersham, we love  tracking color and design trends.  We were delighted to read  that PANTONE, the global authority on color and provider of professional  color standards for the design industries, just announced PANTONE ® 17-5641, a lively, radiant, lush green, as the Color of the Year for 2013.  As detailed in their announcement press release:

The 2012 Color of the Year, PANTONE 17-1463 Tangerine Tango, a spirited, reddish orange, provided the energy boost we needed to recharge and move forward. Emerald, a vivid, verdant green, enhances our sense of well-being further by inspiring insight, as well as promoting balance and harmony.

Most often associated with brilliant, precious gemstones, the perception of Emerald is sophisticated and luxurious. Since antiquity, this luminous, magnificent hue has been the color of beauty and new life in many cultures and religions. It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity – no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.

“Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”

The release goes on highlight how emerald can enhance home interiors too:
Enhance your sense of well-being at home by rejuvenating the interior with Emerald paint, accents and accessories. This jewel-like hue will create a luxurious feel in an entryway, powder room, dining room or study, and bring life to a living room as an accent wall. Add a splash of color to the kitchen and dining room areas with Emerald dinnerware, stemware and appliances.

Habersham Nesting Tables -- American Treasures 01-3330Thomas Sheraton, an English furniture designer, created the quartetto table during the 18th century. It was comprised of four stacking tables that graduated in size. They stored compactly together in a room until needed for needlepoint or checkers.

Today a set of nesting tables is composed of two or three stacking tables.  Among our newest designs is the American Treasures ® Nest of Tables, shown here.  This nest of tables features a sweeping arch perched panel designs on three sides creating a classic, contemporary look.  Shown in Antique White.

64-5755 Habersham Biltmore  Vanderbilt King BedDuring the Spring 2012 High Point Market, Habersham added a new bed design to its licensed Biltmore ® Chateau Reserve Collection — Cornelia’s Cloister Twin Bed– that was extremely well received by designers and dealers alike. In fact, clients liked the design and style so much that they suggested that Habersham consider creating a king version as well. They spoke, Habersham listened and the new Biltmore Vanderbilt King Bed made  its debut during the Fall 2012 High Point Market

Like the twin design, the new Vanderbilt King Bed 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.  Click here to see it and all the designs in our Biltmore ® Chateau Reserve Collection.
