'Brasilia' Highboy Dresser by Broyhill Premiere, Refinished, 1960s, Signed

About the Item

This incredible 'Brasilia' highboy dresser by Broyhill Premiere has been completely refinished and is signed with its original Brasilia label, and ready to grace your home or office. This beautiful high-boy dresser features the signature Brasilia sculpted front panels and brass pulls. These key elements are what makes a Brasilia a Brasilia. The dresser features five wide drawers in total, the top drawer with a sculpted wood front panel and four with brass Brasilia pulls. All standing on top of a sculpted Brasilia base. Brasilia by Broyhill Premiere label located inside of top drawer. We have the matching low dresser with mirror, nightstands and headboard - contact us or see our other listings for details. Originally designed in the 1960s based on the emerging modern designs coming from the capital city of Brazil, Brasilia. Much of the public spaces were designed by architect Oscar Niemeyer such as the Palácio do Planalto which this credenza shares many design similarities with. Perfect for the Mid-Century Modern collector or the interior designer looking for the perfect piece to make a room look complete and finished. These authentic and original Brasilia pieces are always in such high demand. In addition they are commonly copied these days by so many faker makers (there is one West Coast modern dealer that is pumping out many fakes of the Brasilia line so buyers beware). Lastly, there are many other Mid-Century designs that were similar to the Brasilia line and dealers often mistakingly attribute them to Brasilia, so if you are in the market for a real Brasilia... our advice is to buy an authentic labelled example like this one. This Brasilia chest of drawers by Broyhill Premiere would work great in a Mid-Century Modern, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Post-Modern room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an Apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. Works great as a dresser, highboy credenza, or tall sideboard. MEASUREMENTS: H 44.5" x W 40" x D 19" CONDITION: Excellent refinished condition ready for immediate use.
