Broyhill 51 years later....

True story. Back in 1962 my dad just graduated from high school and was working at Gage Furniture. 

He bought my mom a beautiful bedroom set of furniture. It was from the Broyhill Brasilia collection. 

Thank you Retro Renovation for the photo.

I wasn't born until quite a few years later but every memory I had growing up at home had this furniture in it.  

Today, over 50 years later my husband bought me a bedroom suite of furniture. 

Yes that is vintage Pyrex design on my wedding cake!!!

It just so happens that the makers of that original set made a new line of furniture to update but still be reminiscent of the Brasilia line. It's called the Mardella line. I read about it on Retro Renovation's website. Thank you for such an awesome website! 

I am moved by this beautiful significance. Thank you Russel I love you. I can't wait to get the furniture in my house.
