Extraordinary Mid-Century Modern “Diamond Head” credenza in the style of Paul Evans by Broyhill Premier, from the Diamond Head Series circa 1960s. This sculptural beauty features a unique raised relief geometric cubist diamond frieze pattern on each side cabinet door molded of Futuron, a stronger than wood veneer in warm natural pecan tones. Adorned with stunning original teardrop brass hardware, the cabinet doors open to reveal a single fixed shelf, offering ample storage space. Three immaculate dovetailed center drawers constructed of solid pecan feature original, stylish brass pulls and Makers Stamp (Broyhill Premier). The clean lines of the rich pecan frame and tapered legs depict the style of Danish modern design. Versatile and functional, this unique brutalist-style credenza is sure to make an impression and present multiple serving, entertainment and storage uses in a dining room, living room, bedroom or office.
Condition Report: Construction is sturdy; doors and drawers open smoothly; minor imperfections to wood consistent with age and use; brass hardware shows mina patina.
From Broyhill’s original description of this line “inspired by one of America’s most dramatic landmarks, Diamond Head in Hawaii. The exciting diamond head motif is reminiscent of the craggy slopes of Diamond Head as they capture the light – shelter the shadows”
