64-5755 Habersham Biltmore  Vanderbilt King BedAs a Biltmore ® licensee, Habersham will add new designs to its Biltmore ® Chateau Reserve Collection during Spring High Point Market, April 20-24, 2013.  So if you’re coming to market, be sure to visit us to see these and other designs– Market Square, #191, as well as at the Made in America Pavilion in the Suites At Market Square, #1-802.

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!

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:

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.
