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.

Explore This Month’s Featured Home by MPM Interiors

Habersham Fireplace Mantel with TVWe love to showcase home projects from around the country on our website and this month, we invite you to see a lovely Chapel Hill, NC home  renovation project from Michelle Murphy,  Founder, Creative Director, Lead Designer for MPM Interiors and DemiRyan.com. 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.”

One-of-A-Kind Designs For One-Of-A-Kind Homes

Habersham Americana GroupMore and more, people are looking for distinctive and unique designs that not only differentiate their interiors from others, but truly reflect their own design tastes and style sensibilities.  We focused on this concept when creating the new pieces in our Americana group.

Unlike anything else on the market, these one-of-a-kind, artisan designs bring clean lines, hand-styled details and layers of texture and color together to create stunning looks.  As our designer  said,  “We feel these elements add a richness and history to a  piece and create enough depth to draw you in as you look at it – sparking your imagination as a painting would – making each piece truly a complete work of art.”

The design team went on to add, “We chose earthy textures and colors , but not just browned- down hues.  We went with vivid colors from nature –leaves and sky and water – the things we love and that inspire us with their beauty.  We wanted enough life in the colors to bring life to a room, without overpowering it.  Over overall goal was to create works, inspired by God and nature, to help make home s a place where families want to be.”
