Mid-century Dining Room Table and 6 Chairs by Heywood Wakefield

$2,400.00Price

A vintage dining room table and 6 chairs 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 table is the M 165 G in the color Heywood Wakefield called “Champagne”. It was produced from 1947 through 1952. It features a fifth center leg underneath and come with two 15 inch leaves. It measures 60” by 42 wide by 29 high and can be extended to 75 or 90 inches with one or both leaves.

 

The six chairs are the classic Heywood Wakefield dining room chairs often called the “dogbone chair” for the cutout shape in the back of the chair.  These are model M 154 A in Champagne stain. This model was produced from 1950 through 1955.  The seat measures 18” wide by 16 deep and the total back height is 35 inches.

 

This suite is in excellent vintage condition.  It has been cleaned and lightly oiled to relieve it from the Colorado dryness.  The only wear of note is on one of the leaves where there is some etching in the finish from some type of spilled liquid.  The chairs have been professionally outfitted with new foam and re-covered in a new, but vintage style fabric by Knoll.

 

We also have a matching Heywood Wakefield hutch and credenza in the shop.
