Broyhill Brasilia 2 Piece Modular Bookcase

Highly collectible, very rare and super stylish, Broyhill created one of the most unique, Danish style, mid century modern lines of furniture of the era. These modular book case units are almost impossible to find. This (2) piece unit is in good vintage condition. The top of the drawer chest has a few small water type blemishes.

Circa 1960s, American furniture manufacturer Broyhill created the Brasilia line of furniture in 1962. The furniture emulates the spirit of Oscar Niemeyer's design, complete with his distinctive swooping curves, which are repeated in wave-shaped drawer handles and upholstery patterns. Constructed of carefully matched walnut veneer with frames of solid pecan, the extensive line includes pieces for the living room, dining room and bedroom. Broyhill's Brasilia was sold throughout the 1960s and discontinued around 1970.
