What an awesome little side table!! This mid-century modern beauty is comprised of a solid rich walnut tri-leg sculpted biomorphic soft triangle style base that holds a round glass top. It is simple and oh-so-stunning! It is kind of a cross between styles by the iconic Adrian Pearsall and the elite Broyhill Brasilia line. Pearsall is well known for his sculpted boomerang style table bases and Broyhill Brasilia for the biomorphic triangle design style… so this side table has the best of both of those iconic worlds! This side table would make a wonderful addition to any room and it is easily moveable from place to place. The perfect combination of style and versatility.
Pearsall has become one of the most sought after mid-century modern furniture designers. His pieces with their Atomic Age look are very indicative of that flamboyant time with its futuristic vision and sultry and sexy interiors. Pearsall graduated in 1950 from the University of Illinois with an Architectural Engineering degree and in 1952 founded Craft Associates to manufacture his own designs, which trumpeted in the Atomic Age and have now become mid-century modern design icons.
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.
Don’t let this fabulous table get away from you…make it yours now!
