Mid-Century Modern Sculptra nightstands by Broyhill Premier. Back edge of top surface is accented with an upward reaching sculpted lip. Open cabinet storage with one pull-out drawer on metal glides. Inset elliptical handles on the drawers enhance the atomic age charm. Top surfaces have been professionally refinished. The curving lines, solid wood construction, and unique champagne finish of Heywood-Wakefield furniture has made it one of the most popular vintage furniture styles of all time.
Broyhill Premier introduced the Sculptra collection in 1957 and continued making it into the early to mid 60s. Here is part of the rich history of the Broyhill Premier Sculptra collection:
As the American population grew steadily more affluent throughout the 1950s, Broyhill recognized that tastes in furniture were shifting. In the past, buyers of moderately priced furniture had sought massiveness and elaborate embellishment, but the company’s executives felt sophisticated styling and quality were becoming more important. In 1957, in an effort to meet this demand, the company established the Broyhill Premier line. The old Lenoir Chair Company plant was given over to production of these pieces, and a separate, additional sales force of 30 men was established. In addition, Broyhill began to institute a quality control program, complete with a lab, to insure that its Premier products lived up to their name. In the words of Paul Broyhill, “Furniture is a very personal belonging … very much a part of a family’s life and likes. The same piece of furniture in different homes seems to match the mood of each setting.The success of any piece of furniture depends on its ability to lead a full family life … to belong … without showing undue signs of stress and stain. It has to be durable as well as beautiful … to anticipate your demands for the new and exciting … to show the results of the fine craftsmanship and care that went into its making. Broyhill Premier is this “kind” of furniture.
