A while back, I mentioned that we were thinking of replacing our old dining room buffet for something smaller and more mid century. I’ve been trying to keep my eyes peeled for something that felt right and although there is a lot out there, nothing stuck out to me. Then I spotted this Broyhill Sculptra Dresser! Yes, dresser.
There is something to be said about mid century furniture! I’m particularly attracted to the streamline pieces, with simple patterns and shapes. I don’t want anything too elaborate or fancy. This was perfect! The lines are so clean and straight, not to mention the legs! The color of the wood is also perfect, it’s not too dark or light. It stands out nicely with the white walls and neutral pieces! Most of all, it was so cheap!
Although its purpose is to be used as a dresser, I decided we could use it as a side buffet to hold place mats, hot mats, table cloths, the kids bibs, extra serving ware and a few other pieces that can be more easily accessible. The top drawers will be great to help organize mail, so it’s not piling up on the table. Although, I need to make sure it doesn’t just become another dreaded junk drawer!
If all else fails, we can always use it as a dresser again! For now, I don’t want it to be hidden in any of the rooms. It’s just such a beautiful piece! This is definitely an alternative to a credenza or china cabinet! If you are looking for a smaller piece to serve a good purpose, this is a more affordable option. And now I don’t have to get rid of our unique buffet in the dining room, since it can still serve as a whole new purpose on its own.
I am very happy with our find and I know it will get a lot of use in years to come! What do you think of our newest mid century piece?! P.S. I was so happy when I saw that Vintage Revivals has a very similar dresser from the same line in her amazing home – love her blog!
