Sleeper Hit: New Biltmore® Cornelia’s Cloister Bed

HABERSHAM Biltmore Cornelias Cloister Bed

Our new Biltmore ® Cornelia’s Cloister Bed was the  “Hit of High Point “ for us during the recent Spring 2012 Spring Market.  The reactions — gasps of surprise and delight from dealers and designers alike who visited our showroom during the home furnishings trade show – were  fun to watch as they rounded the corner into the room where this new piece was showcased.

The latest  addition to our  licensed Biltmore® Chateau Reserve Collection, this twin bed design was inspired by the Sheraton Room at Biltmore House in Asheville, NC.  The Cloister Bed is neoclassical in style and shares a headboard and canopy, creating a large-scale image of grandeur.

The wood is indicative of early 19th century architectural cloisters, where  covered walks in monasteries, colleges and cathedrals had one walled side and one open colonnade.   The piece is named for Cornelia Vanderbilt, only child of Biltmore’s visionary creator George Vanderbilt and his wife Edith. Cornelia grew up at Biltmore and was truly, as the estate’s website describes,  a “princess of a 250-room castle and its 8000-acre kingdom.”
