BILTMORE
ESTATE
COLLECTION
George Washington Vanderbilt

completed construction of the Bilt-
more House in Asheville, North
Carolina, in 1895. This 250-room es-
tate is the largest private residence
in America. The Vanderbilts fur-
nished the home with exquisite art
and antiques from around the
world. From these original furnish-
ings Drexel Heritage created the
Biltmore Estate Collection. The ban-
quet hall dining table was designed
by Richard Morris Hunt, the Bilt-
more House architect. The repro-
duction incorporates the same
mid-Victorian Gothic designs with
carved column legs crafted in ma-
hogany. The English dining chairs
are an adaptation of an English Ro-
coco antique found in the home.
The mahogany cabinet emulated

the architectural carvings of the
Austrian artist Karl Bitter, whose
work appears in the home. "This is
one of the most exciting reproduc-
tion efforts in the furniture industry.
The Vanderbilt family imported the
original pieces over many years. It's
an authentic reproduction of the
masterpieces. We are happy to have
them," says Bernie Moray, presi-
dent of Gorman's.

Merchandise shown available from
Drexel Heritage at Gorman's in Troy
and Fairlane. On May 22-23, there
will be a special Biltmore open house
at Gorman's in Troy and Fairlane
with representatives from Drexel Her-
itage.

Merchandise shown available at
Baby & Me, Crosswinds Mall, West
Bloomfield.
