One of the most celebrated and highly collectible lines on the American atomic era of design. The cabinet’s signature arches and pulls are molded after buildings design by Niemeyer for Brazil’s capital city, widely recognized as the best mid-century era design series produced by Broyhill. Coveted for iconic raised walnut designs that extend beyond the face of the doors, there are few other produced pieces of furniture as sculptural in nature. Unique walnut fronts that extend a few inches out are critical to the design element and represented a great challenge.
