Broyhill Brasilia II - Revisited! Reader Jon From The Seattle Area Was Kind Enough To Share Photos Of Not Only Their Personal Brasilia Collection (That IS Available!) But Also A Special Gift For All Of Us Brasilia Lovers. Status: FINALLY!!!
Reader Jon B. found Mr. Modtomic while looking for info to price their amazingly complete, second owner dining room suite. They found an earlier post wherein we discussed the dining table as presented by The Nomads and realized there was a dearth of info on the Brasilia II line. Because of their generousity, that's about to change!
Jon was kind enough to shoot some really nice photos of their personal Broyhill Brasilia II dining
suite. Wow! Look at all that booze in the "china" cabinet! Too bad Jon's in the North West 'cuz
otherwise I'd say let's all meet over there and have a party!
So this is what many of the Brasilia II dining pieces look like in real life. Yes, there are many
similarities to the original Brasilia line like the base to that china cabinet and the chairs are similar
but note that there are stretchers between the front and rear legs (the original chairs don't have 'em)
and the different china top to that china cabinet. These are some of the more subtle changes, the
dining table itself and the plinth base server are more obvious.
And SHAZAM!!! The much searched for Broyhill Brasilia II brochure! I'm not sure that this is
comprehensive in that there are still some oddball pieces out there that I've never seen in any catalog
or anywhere but the craigslist ad or random photo where I originally found them. Then there are the
pieces on this brochure that I've yet to see in person or on line yet, like the Cane Headboards or the
glass top dining or end tables...those are so choice! Anyway, enjoy the new info, buy Jon's dining set
and if you'd like a copy of the PDF of the brochure shoot me a note.
