Like the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one cannot miss Broyhill Brasilia Furniture—with its swooping, parabolic curves, it is virtually an eighth world wonder.
An iconic American furniture brand in its own right, Broyhill unveiled their illustrious Brasilia line at the 1962 Seattle’s World Fair. Inspired by Brazil’s burgeoning capital city and its famed Oscar Niemeyer architecture, Broyhill Brasilia pieces married futuristic, hyperboloid shapes with quintessential American woods like walnut and pecan. The result was furniture that felt both accessible and daringly avant-garde. Even today, these pieces continue to enrapture, evoking the sensation that the future has truly arrived.
