The Debut of the Estate Collection from Biltmore by Castelle
Wednesday, November 28, 2018
Castelle, designer and manufacturer of luxury outdoor furnishings, announces a continuation of its collaboration with America’s Largest Home through a recent installation at The Inn on Biltmore Estate of lounging and dining furniture from the Biltmore by Castelle Estate Collection.
Located at the pool, the Porte Cochere entrance, and the Grand Terrace at the chateauesque-style Inn on Biltmore Estate, the Biltmore Licensed Products outdoor furnishings were designed using fabrics and finishes custom-selected for the elegant property.
“The Castelle outdoor furnishings are in keeping with the superior quality the estate is known for providing to its guests,” said George Gikas, vice president, Castelle Contract. “We are proud to provide the level of quality required by the Inn’s guests through this installation of our inaugural Estate Collection.”
The handcrafted outdoor furnishings are constructed of cast- and extruded-aluminum and feature elements inspired by architectural designs and classic lattice-work found in details at the nearby Biltmore House.
Sling chaise lounges, sling dining and tables, cushioned action lounge seating, coffee and side tables, and coordinating umbrellas are among the pieces selected for the property’s terraces. From the furniture, guests can enjoy views of the 8,000 acre estate as well as the surrounding North Carolina mountains.
“When plans for an update to the patio areas at The Inn on Biltmore Estate were initiated, we looked to our partnership with Castelle as the furniture designs were created to exhibit the elegance and quality expected by our property and our guests,” said Charles Thompson, general manager, The Inn on Biltmore Estate. “Ultimately, we were extremely pleased with the customization available to create a perfect complement to our interior decor.”
A stay overnight at the Inn means experiencing the same gracious hospitality enjoyed by George and Edith Vanderbilt’s guests. All visitors are made to feel at home in any of the 211 guest rooms and suites, surrounded by casual elegance. Each room boasts fine furnishings and elegant fabrics, just as those offered by the Castelle furnishings on the outdoor terraces.
A provider of handcrafted luxury outdoor furnishings for more than 40 years, Castelle is proud of its partnership with Biltmore inspired by elements of George Vanderbilt’s estate.
