Description

Stunning Broyhill Brasilia expanding walnut wood dining table with three leaves. Although minimal in its flare, this sleek table has subtle style. We love the sculpted solid walnut legs. Narrowing to point, these sturdy, architectural legs have a frail, Scandinavian inspired profile. Look close and you’ll see this top is not a perfect square or rectangle by design. Makers crafted it with a distinct, Danish style “bow” to soften the lines. The table comes with an additional three, 12″ insert leaves. One leaf has a skirt, two do not. The possibilities for customizing size and configuration are endless. Measures 66″ with no leaves. Be sure to take a look at all of the pictures to see the different arrangements. Seat parties of 2-10 with no problem. We have several Broyhill Brasilia pieces to match this table, so reach out for more information.

This listing is for the table alone. The matching eight dining chairs are sold separately.

Delicately refinished to beautiful condition by our in-house restoration team. Only a few minor shadows are left behind from old superficial scratches. The scratches are not detectable to the touch and covered in multiple coats of hand-buffed finish. We’re certain you won’t find a nicer example of this table anywhere. Eight Brasilia Dining Chairs are also available and sold separately.

66”-102” 1/8 Long x 40” Wide x 30” High (3x 12” leaves)

About Brasilia:
One of the most beloved and collected of the American Mid Century Modern era. Designed by famed architect Oscar Niemeyer for Broyhill in the 1960s. 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 1960s in various forms similar to this Brasilia Dining Table.
