BILTMORE® DEBUTS TWO NEW OUTDOOR COLLECTIONS
American treasure inspires new designs from Whitecraft
Casual indoor and outdoor furniture manufacturer Whitecraft debuts two licensed collections inspired by the American treasure, Biltmore, the largest privately owned residence in the United States, located in Asheville, North Carolina. These collections meld the handcrafted quality and exquisite design expertise of Whitecraft with the legendary sophistication of Biltmore. George Vanderbilt’s 8,000-acre estate, nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, imparts gracious outdoor living with splendid flower gardens, verandas, gazebos, and abundant outdoor activities.
“Blue Ridge,” takes its cues from a more transitional, relaxed feel and features tightly woven strands of WickerLoom? over curvy, uncluttered silhouettes with woven trim around the table tops and legs. The Sunbrella™ fabric selections for “Blue Ridge,” are done in stunning jewel tones. There’s a large-leaf floral pattern in deep reds and greens on a black background; complementary solids in a moss green and orange-reds add vibrancy and a coordinating neutral stripe in tans and browns imparts warmth.
The collection is perfect for indoor or protected outdoor use and includes seating and dining options that are the epitome of elegant living.
“South Terrace,” inspired by pieces located in the Winter Garden of Biltmore House, is an All-Weather collection crafted with resin molded over an aluminum frame with Viro® weave, making it ideal for outdoor use. The fabric selections for “South Terrace” are subtle with a sophisticated, genteel aesthetic. The patterned fabric as shown on this collection is a floral paisley combination in varying shades of chocolates and tans on a beige background. A solid flax and a tweed-like barley serve as complementary tones.
This group has a refined aesthetic with exposed bamboo-inspired legs as well as chair and sofa backs with a unique fretwork design that adds visual interest. “South Terrace” includes seating and dining options.
