Mid-Century Bedroom High Boy Chest by Heywood Wakefield

Mid-Century Bedroom High Boy Chest by Heywood Wakefield


A mid-century high boy chest from the Modern line by Heywood Wakefield from Snowdrift Antiques.


The Heywood Brothers furniture company formed in 1826 in Massachusetts and merged with the Wakefield Company in 1897. In 1921 they became Heywood-Wakefield. They first made wicker and rattan furniture. By 1949, Heywood -Wakefield designers were being asked to produce more modern furniture lines to keep up with the times and the tastes of American households.


This is a five drawer high boy bedroom chest is model 112 from the “Modern” line of Heywood-Wakefield. It was made only in 1947 and 1948. It is in the color Heywood Wakefield called “Champagne”.


It measures 34 inches wide by 20 ¼ deep by 46 tall.


This piece is in excellent vintage condition.  It has some minor wear here and there but overall has been very well taken care of.  I have oiled it lightly to relieve it from the Colorado dryness.
