Guest room gets Sculptra make over.
We are Craig's List scourers. Those who tune in to Atomic Indy on Facebook & Twitter benefit from shared links to items found but not procured. Our pass is your gain. This sharing of links is quickly becoming mutual in our growing community.
Case in point:
Got an email from friend, Paul (host of Atomic Crash Party #2) notifying us of a C's List listing from Muncie, IN. Listing had no images. Undeterred, images were requested. Returned was a collection of pictures containing a great looking set of Broyhill's Sculptra line. And cats. Lots of cats. I'm allergic to cats.
Soon after collecting my inhaler, we were Muncie bound. Arrived to discover furniture residing with cats. Lots of cats. Managed through a cat herding exercise, bringing new found appreciation for; "it was like herding cats". I'm really allergic to cats. For real.
Once cat clutter cleared and breathing resumed, we discovered Mid Century Modern furniture in mint condition. Mint as in minty-mint. So minty, several pieces still donned original sales tags. Now that's minty sweet.
By this point my eyes were itching red and hives were fighting through. I'm allergic to cats. A lot.
Chest o' drawers.
Six drawer dresser.
Full bed frame. Also note matching mirror cheating into right side of frame.
Two night stands.
Original manufacturer and retailer tags.
We proceeded to clean and oil newest additions to our MCM family. Guest room was promptly staged.
Note: room still needs baseboards and paint. Battle of pee-yellow paint continues to plague.
Staging allows us to share two vintage clocks procured on Salvation Army scouting missions. Both work perfectly.
Panasonic clock radio.
GE flip clock.
While we're sharing new treasures, check this super sweet Heifetz Rotaflex swag lamp procured from Meridian Vintage.
In an effort to add more architectural interest to lines created by swagged cord, we added a plumb-bob to the equation.
A little info on Broyhill:
In the 60's Broyhill was making quality modern furniture inspired by the Danish furniture rock stars. They had three high-end modern lines. Sculptra, Saga and Brasilia. Most popular of which was Brasilia.
Our friends over at Modern Capital have a great post revealing inspirations for the Brasilia line's unique styling. See here.
If you're trying to complete a Brasilia collection you must contact the folks at Brasilia Connection. They take their Brasilia seriously.
Very little info is available on Broyhill's Sculptra line. If you know more, share it.
