Broyhill Brasilia Dining Chair Suite. The Whole Set. Just Wanting For A Table. Status:Update - All Gone.
This is what the Brasilia dining chairs look like with the original upholstery...after 50 years of use. These need a little love and help but if you need a set to get your Brasilia set going, I got 'em!
I got this set from Dan last weekend when I went over to shoot their ridiculously cool
home. He had acquired them as a set and was going to clean up and use a pair of them to
have 8 total available but life sometimes just doesn't give us enough hours in the day...or
enough room in the garage. He needed to let them go. I figured I could find a needy home for
I don't know if the upholstery is salvageable but it is the original fabric. Maybe it can be cleaned
but it looks rough as is. I'm not a fan myself but some people (usually myself included) want
complete originality. I'm going to give the wood a complete cleanup with the Murphy Oil Soap
and see what they look like. I think they'll clean up nice.
If anybody in the St. Louis area or nearby is looking for Brasilia chairs, let me know. I haven't
listed these on c-list yet so you might be able to snatch them up before I do. I have my own
complete set so these aren't needed here either. I'm willing to break up the set evenly as well.
They aren't perfect examples but I won't be asking 1stDibs prices either. Like I said, they need
some help (I can even perhaps offer reupholstery for a price) but it might just be a way to start
your Brasilia dining collection without squashing your bank balance!
