Biltmore & Larson Juhl Biltmore™, America’s Largest Home is located in picturesque Asheville, North Carolina. Built between 1889-1895, it is known for its relaxed elegance and exceptional treasures, including original art from masters such as Pierre-August Renoir and John Singer Sergent. The frames surrounding these great works of art served as the inspiration for Larson-Juhl’s first Biltmore™ frame collection. Reminiscent of Biltmore’s antique frames, with their intricate details, aged patina and rich finishes, the Biltmore Frame Collection™ by Larson-Juhl® brings the grandeur and tradition of this great home to art & custom framing. Larson-Juhl’s second Biltmore inspired moulding collection, Billiard, introduces a classic, masculine aesthetic, designed around the grand Billiard Room of the historic Biltmore house. The Billiard Collection™ by Larson-Juhl® combines traditional styling and patterning with a soft Ebony finish accented with Gold detailing. The latest custom frame moulding collection from Larson-Juhl, inspired by Biltmore, is the Olmsted collection. The Olmsted Collection by Larson-Juhl® is inspired by Fredrick Law Olmsted, the landscape architect behind the grounds of Biltmore Estate as well as New York City’s Central Park. Olmsted features classic Acanthus leaf ornamentation, which has been an important element in architecture for centuries.
