Brutalist Geometric Cubist Carved Mid-Century Modern Armoire Bar Cabinet Chest

About

Mid-Century Modern Diamond Head armoire cabinet by Broyhill Premier. Beautiful and sculptural, this case piece features a unique geometric cubist pattern in natural pecan tones and original brass hardware. This brutalist style chest can be used as a bar cabinet, clothing armoire, or general storage chest or closet. Interior features removable drawers and dividers. In the style of Paul Evans. From Broyhill's original description of this line, "A romantic new furniture collection inspired by one of America's most dramatic landmarks- Diamond Head in Hawaii. The exciting diamond head motif on the doors is reminiscent of the craggy slopes of Diamond Head as they capture the light- shelter the shadows. Diamond head's beautiful face veneers are hand selected pecan and all exposed solid parts are of pecan. Both the framed door panel and the diamond studded frieze are molded of Futuron, a stronger than wood synthetic miracle of modern chemistry."

About Broyhill (Manufacturer)

The Broyhill Furniture Company is one of the stalwart North Carolina makers of mid-priced, traditional wooden furnishings, and it has been serving American families well since the 1920s. The Colonial Revival style — chairs with turned legs; beds with split pediment headboards — has always been the company’s stock in trade. But among fans of mid-century modern design — particularly those who enjoy more flamboyant stylings, such as those of Adrian Pearsall — Broyhill is most admired for its brief foray into the contemporary furnishings of the late 1950s and ‘60s.


     In 1957, responding to changing tastes, the firm launched its Broyhill Premium line with the Sculptra series. Sculptra pieces featured decorative molding with a square-within-a-square motif and horizontal cat’s eye-shaped drawer pulls. Five years later, Broyhill introduced the Brasilia furniture group, inspired by the Oscar Niemeyer architecture for the brand-new Brazilian capital.


     The cabinet door fronts of Brasilia pieces feature moldings based on the sweeping colonnades and parabolic curves of such buildings as the Palácio da Alvorada ( “Palace of the Dawn”), the presidential residence. As you will see on these pages, Broyhill created a striking and spirited line of furnishings that will make a happy keynote in an Atomic Age decor.
