Well, folks, I’m managing a post a week these days. I’m also managing more vintage furniture
lusting shopping. This past trip I came across some Broyhill Brasilia pieces and deemed the furniture line worthy enough of its own post to the likeness of Paul’s post from a couple weeks ago. Which, by the way, I went and checked up on my table and chairs, and it’s still there…waiting to be purchased and just be AWESOME in someone’s (read: my) kitchen.
But anyway, I found yet another awesome vintage store in Columbus ridiculously close to all the others, and it had a Broyhill Brasilia dining set and sideboard. I was instantly drawn to it. I love the dark wood and that bold graphic of the curves that the entire collection weaves into every piece.
However, I think the bold graphic is a bit of a double-edged sword – It looks great and is something you really don’t see anymore on today’s furniture, but I would have to draw the line at one piece. Am I right? Those curves are in everything which would make a house full or even a room full of the stuff seem way too matchy. And if I’m spending all this time trolling all these furniture places, matchy is definitely NOT what I’m going for! OK, you can have more than one piece if you simply can’t decide, just put them in different rooms.
If I ever come across this dresser, (and it wasn’t über expensive, and I didn’t already have one of these pieces) I’m buying it. How great are those knobs? Ugh. so good.
How can we talk about Mid Century furniture and not talk about the bar cart? We can’t. So here it is Brasilia style. I hope that little section in the middle opens up and has more storage.
And one more piece to round out the gallery today.
If I had to pick one, I’m torn between that dresser and this fabulous credenza from The Weather Door.
I guess I could put them in different rooms, right?
Alright now its your turn! If you had to choose, which one Broyhill Brasilia piece would you put in your house?
