When my grandma passed away this last summer, I inherited a dining set and matching hutch. I assumed the furniture was something from the 1950's, but didn't think to look into it any further. Well, today when reading my way through the Apartment Therapy posts I have stacked up in Google Reader, I recognized some similar furniture from one of their New York Scavenger posts. As I searched out "Danish Modern Brasilia" in Google, I found my exact dining set and hutch made by Broyhill Brasilia. It's exciting to learn that these pieces are actually sought out by people, even though I have no plans at all to part with them. Mystery solved! I had plans to paint the pieces, but is it fair to assume I would be tarred and feathered by purists if I did so? I don't think I want to paint them now knowing what they are. But the fabric on the chairs doesn't match my kitchen at all. Can I at least change that? What do you think?
Broyhill Brasilia done right! That is my exact dining set in the back. It is a huge table with 2 leaves and has 4 chairs and 2 armchairs. A perfect Thanksgiving table... and it always was.
My exact hutch.
The photos are not of my pieces as mine are hidden under drop cloths in our living room right now. Oh, the joys of remodeling.
