Mid-century Heywood-Wakefield Dining Room Table and Chairs

Mid-century Heywood-Wakefield Dining Room Table and Chairs


A mid-century dining room table with two leaves and 6 chairs from Heywood-Wakefield’s very rare Fascination line in the color “Topaz” offered by 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.


Almost always, when you see a piece of Heywood-Wakefield furniture it is immediately recognizable, made from Northern Yellow Birch and done in either of their classic stain colors, “Wheat” or “Champagne”. This Heywood-Wakefield dining room table and chairs are from the very hard to find Fascination collection which features the darker stain they called “Topaz”. Neither the Fascination line or any Topaz pieces appear in the Heywood-Wakefield reference book.


The table is marked as Model M 1993G. The stamp indicates it was inspected on April 26, 1961. It measures 60 inches long by 40 inches wide at the center by 29 ½ high. It comes with two 15 inch leaves, allowing it to be extended to 75 or 90 inches in length. The table comes with its set of original protective pads.


There is one captain’s chair, Model M1981 C and 5 side chairs, Model M1981 A. The chairs have been professionally re-covered as evident by the beautifully done corners.  They have new high density foam for comfort. A spec sheet of the fabric is provided in case you need more.


This table and chairs are in excellent vintage condition. The table top is beautiful and free of water rings or heat marks. There is some normal wear here and there, but it is obvious the pads were used extensively to protect it. There is one tiny chip on the corner of one leaf. See image 15.


This is a beautifully done mid-century dining room from a hard to find collection of a renowned maker.
