Description

Part of a complete bedroom set, this triple dresser was delicately restored to preserve the original dark patina. We would find this dresser fairly often over the years, but Brasilia has elevated to a high-end status that has made them very sought after and subsequently harder to find. We love this line and have never seen two pieces that look identical. Not only because of the variations in walnut grain, but the way that they age. We did our absolutely best to recondition these pieces while preserving their dark, oily patina. The top was professionally refinished by our in-house cabinet shop to match the original and untouched sections. Otherwise detailed top to bottom, inside and out. Only a small cluster of scratches towards the back of the top remain (see pic). Designed in the 1960s by famed architect Oscar Niemeyer, the key design elements of the series mimic those of buildings Niemeyer designed in Brazil’s capital city. Here we have a triple dresser featuring Brasilia’s famous arched edifice and arched brass drawer pulls. Complete your bedroom set with the matching nightstands, king size headboard, mirror and gentleman’s dresser (sold separately).

The Brasilia line by Broyhill was created in 1962. The signature lines and waves of Brasilia furniture were inspired by the distinct architecture of the city of Brasilia, the capital of Brazil. The city of Brasilia was planned and developed between 1956 and 1960. When viewed from above, the city’s shape resembles a plane or bird, which is mimicked on much of Broyhill’s original fabric and tiles. Most of the city’s architecture was the vision of a man named Oscar Niemeyer.

Some of his most notable works are the Palacio de Alvorada and the Cathedral of Brasilia. These both feature clean lines and simple, modern design. What stands out most about the architecture is the use of hyperboloid structures, as in the cathedral and it’s parabolic columns, which are said to represent two hands moving upwards towards heaven. This particular building is one of Brasilia’s most recognizable attractions, due to its unique design and grand scale. When viewing the architecture of Brasilia, it is clear to see the inspiration in the design of the Broyhill Brasilia line of furniture. This line was first featured at the Seattle World’s Fair in 1962 representing the city of Brasilia. These unique pieces were created throughout the 1960’s in various forms similar to this Brasilia Triple Dresser.
