There are plenty of bedroom sets in this world… and then occasionally you come across a STUNNING five-piece bedroom set like this Brasilia Broyhill Premier Series!!! The set includes a dresser, a lingerie chest, a king-sized headboard, and a pair of arched mirrors. Let’s begin with dresser #6130-33. It is comprised of gorgeous walnut veneer, and it features the iconic signature sculpted bentwood arch side doors with three graduated dovetail drawers behind them and three large center dovetail drawers featuring lovely brass pulls. It would be a fabulous dresser in your bedroom, but it would be marvelous as a credenza or buffet in your dining room, family room, or study. Place it under a large mirror in the entry or adorn it with artwork, a sculpture, or a wonderful pair of lamps. The lingerie chest #6130-43 is comprised of gorgeous walnut veneer, and it features fabulous brass pulls in the center of each of the seven graduated size dovetail drawers from smaller at the top to larger at the bottom. Maybe you don’t have lingerie? No problem…You could also use it as a tall, narrow dresser in your bedroom for ANY accessories. It would be a lovely cabinet to use in a study, office, hall, or entry for linens, books, office supplies, or anything you want to stow away. The king-sized headboard #6130-59 is going to be fabulous in your bedroom! All you need is a king-sized mattress and a Hollywood frame OR if you don’t mind the opinion of my mom, who is a FABULOUS retired interior designer… She would have a hanging mechanism or wall cleat made so that you can attach it to the wall and lift it a little higher, use a platform rather than a Hollywood frame, and toss out the box springs as mattresses today are much taller than they used to be. And last but certainly not least the single arch mirrors #6130-01. They are comprised of GORGEOUS rectangular walnut frames with a classic Brasilia sculpted arch base surrounding a fantastic U-shaped mirror. They are going to be fabulous above the dresser in your bedroom, but they would be equally fabulous on either side of a fireplace, above a sideboard, or buffet, or over a console or demi lune table. Need an awesome pair of mirrors over the double sinks in your master bathroom? You just found them!! Or you could always split the pair up and use them in separate rooms. The possibilities are endless and magnificent!!! This entire set is absolutely beautiful and bares a classic beauty with a Brutalist style that you are sure to love for years to come.
It is no coincidence that The Brasilia collection design is very architectural in style. It was introduced to the public at the Seattle World’s Fair in 1962 and drew its inspiration from the architecture of the newly created and majestic Capital of Brazil, Brasilia. The brochure for Brasilia by Broyhill Premier says…….” Brasilia…the city…by its daring and beauty has revolutionized architecture and opened vast new horizons of design. From this inspired dream, Broyhill Premier drew inspiration for the furniture grouping which bears the fine young name: BRASILIA.” This line was extremely popular with the furniture buying public and is still sought out today. Broyhill ended production of this successful line sometime in the 1970s.
Broyhill Furniture was founded by 27-year-old James Edgar Broyhill in 1926. Edgar or Ed had worked for his older brother’s furniture company as a salesman, bookkeeper, and clerk since 1919. It is a story of true American entrepreneurship. Starting simply producing single pieces of furniture, they soon grew into a huge well-known and well-respected furniture manufacturer. Ed together with his brothers merged and purchased smaller entities to do so. The company flourished till the depression as did most furniture makers and refitted and remade themselves during WWII to stay in business. After the war with the American economy booming, they expanded further. During the mid-20th century introducing beautiful and extraordinarily successful modern lines. Still flourishing and expanding during the 1970s until in 1980 they turned the tables and sold the company to St. Louis based Interco, Inc. who had also purchased Ethan Allen and Lane. By 1991 Interco had overextended and sought bankruptcy protection. Then climbing out of their slump by the early 2000’s Interco transitioned into their newest incarnation, Furniture Brand International, which remains one of the largest manufacturers of furniture today.
Quality manufacturer, versatility, and a striking style that you can only find in a Brasilia Broyhill Premier Series piece. This five-piece set is just too exquisite to let go. You simply MUST have it… so, make it YOURS!!!
