Richly Rustic | Americana Rustic Work Table

Habersham American Rustic Work TableEach month we put special product spotlights on some of our newest designs. Among them,  our richly rustic, hand-carved  Americana Work Table (style # 37-3060B).

Introduced during the Fall 2014 High Point Market, our new Americana Grouping features one-of-a-kind pieces that can work beautifully in any home décor style.  We’ve achieved this by using clean lines, hand-done detailing and layers of texture and color.  The result – unique designs that will appeal to anyone hoping to reflect their own personality and style sensibilities in their home.

The meticulous attention to detail, and distinctive artisan touches, make each piece a complete work of art.

Homeowners Seek Kitchen Designs That Can Stand The Test Of Time

Habersham Custom KitchensThere’s no question that a kitchen renovation requires a  significant investment.  So it’s not surprising that recent findings of the U.S. Houzz Kitchen Remodeling Survey confirmed that homeowners are making design choices they feel  not only  withstand  the test of time, but the winds of changing style and design trend directions as well.

Here at Habersham, we’ve always focused on quality , hand-styled craftsmanship and timeless designs that blend seamlessly in  countless décor styles  — especially when it comes to custom fitted kitchens.

From Kitchen & Bath Business magazine:

“For the majority of homeowners, the relationship with their kitchen is a significant long-term commitment to both function and aesthetics, one that can last 30 years or more.  According to the 2014 U.S. Houzz Kitchen Remodeling Survey, 25 percent of those choosing to remodel have kitchens that are more than 30 year old, and another 41 percent are updating kitchens that are anywhere from 16 to 30 years old.  Houzz found that most kitchens last two or four times longer than the typical U.S. marriage (eight years) and duration of car ownership (nearly six years.)

“We already know that kitchens are the biggest driver of discretionary spending in the remodeling market,” said Nino Stichinava, principal economist at Houzz.  “As the economy has improved, many homeowners who delayed spending on kitchen updates feel like they now have the means to remodel.  We should continue to see an uptick in discretionary spending on home improvements into 2015.”

Kitchen renovations are a major investment, commanding the largest spending levels among remodeling projects.  Given the considerable longevity and cost, homeowners are making choices to ensure they can live with their kitchens for many years to come.

Americana Grouping Invites You To Express Your Own Sense of Style

Habersham Americana Our new Americana Grouping features a collection of one-of-a-kind pieces that can work beautifully in any home décor style.  We’ve achieved this by using clean lines, hand-done detailing and layers of texture and color.  The result – unique designs that will appeal to anyone hoping to reflect their own personality and style sensibilities in their home.  The meticulous attention to detail, and distinctive artisan touches, make each piece a complete work of art.

Our Deer Hill Cupboard, shown here, is just one example. It  is finished in a custom green tone with hand-painted art on the door panels.  Our artisan team chose colors from nature – leaves, water, sky – the things we love and that inspire us with their beauty.

Winter 2015 Market Highlights | Newest Additions to Biltmore® Chateau Reserve Collection

Habersham Biltmore Chateau Reserve We invite members of the trade to learn more about the latest additions to our growing collection of hand‐painted, styled and finished custom fitted furniture during the Winter 2015 Dallas Total Home & Gift Market in the Gallery Six Showroom, WTC 11013.

Among the highlights include additions to our  Biltmore® Chateau Reserve Collection  and other new accent furnishings.  The Chateau Reserve Collection, a collaboration between Biltmore and Habersham, has drawn its 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 furniture pieces reflect the art, architecture, hospitality and ambiance that George W. Vanderbilt cultivated for his estate.

Introduced earlier this year,our Biltmore Overlook Arch Bookcase was inspired by the beautiful arches and ironwork found in the library of the famed Asheville, NC estate. Now, we have has taken this popular design and created a home theater option. Fluted columns and arches come together with ornate metal grillwork for an elegant room accent.

Michelle used Habersham in a number of spaces throughout the 2800-square-foot  home.

“Most people think  Habersham  is a line that only works for grand scale homes.,” says Michelle. “But this particular project showcases Habersham in a different light – showing how well it can work in a smaller space. With the exception of the Hearth room, this home’s ceilings are 9’ and Habersham works perfectly.”

img pantone color of the year 2015 press release 542x542 PANTONE® Reveals Color of the Year for 2015: Marsala © 2009 Habersham HomeHere 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 ® 18-1438 Marsala, a naturally robust and earthy wine red, as the Color of the Year for 2015     As detailed in their announcement press release:

“Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.”

The release goes on to highlight how Marsala can enhance home interiors too:

“Complex and full-bodied without overpowering, Marsala provides a unifying element for interior spaces. Add elegance to any room by incorporating this rich and welcoming hue in accent pieces, accessories and paint. Marsala’s plush characteristics are enhanced when the color is applied to textured surfaces, making it an ideal choice for rugs and upholstered living room furniture.

Nurturing and fulfilling, Marsala is a natural fit for the kitchen and dining room – making it ideal for tabletop, small appliances and linens throughout the home. The hue will be especially prominent in striping and floral patterns found in printed placemats, dinnerware, bedding and throws.”
