Mid-Century Modern Broyhill Facet Walnut Lowboy Dresser

This is an entrancing mid-century modern lowboy dresser from the 1960s.  The dresser is from the rare and obsolete ‘Facet’ series by Broyhill Premier.  Facet was produced for less than one year before being discontinued, as the production cost was deemed too high.  Almost no pieces from this series exist; a shame, as the design is entirely independent from the popular Brasilia, Sculptra and Saga series.  The dresser is fashioned from a solid hardwood base overlaid with light-toned walnut veneer.  There are two small drawers on the left and right sides with a longer drawer in the center.  Each drawer is banded with Facet’s iconic sculptural trim for Scandinavian influence.  Below, there are four larger drawers for additional storage.  Each drawer offers solid wood construction, a figured walnut front and its original custom brass hardware.  The dresser is banded with solid walnut trim to add dimension to the overall design.  It is mounted on a solid walnut stretcher base with four tapered legs.  It measures 60” long x 19” wide x 31.5” tall and is in superb condition.  It retains its original cloth label on the inside of the top left drawer and its orange velvet compartment inside the right drawer.  The matching gentleman’s chest is available for separate purchase.  This extraordinary lowboy from Broyhill’s ‘Facet’ series is a rare find and deserves a place of recognition in the discerning modernist’s collection.
