Difference between Broyhill Brasilia and Saga Chairs?

Postby deckhouseterp » Wed Feb 04, 2009 7:52 pm

I have managed to collect a Brasilia buffet, china cabinet and what I thought were 4 "single" piece dining room chairs- now I have found an e-bay listing for what I thought were 4 more chairs and a table (with pads!) listed along with a Broyhill Saga china cabinet and buffet.

After doing some googling it looks like the Brasilia single piece chairs appear to be the same as the Saga chairs-

I think that the dining table might be the same as well... but it's tough to tell.

Is anyone familiar with this stuff?

You posted the Saga chairs. The picture on http://www.brasiliaconnection.com home page is of the Brasillia line. The back of the chair is different.

The design concept for the Brasilia series is Niemeyer's Alvorada (Sunrise) Palace (1957):

Most, if not all, of Broyhill Brasilia pieces have the parabolic curves expressed as part of the design - in the back of the above chairs, for instance.
