I have been obsessed with Heywood-Wakefield for 10 years... Anytime I step into a furniture consignment or antiques shop I'm on my knees looking under any similarly styled pieces for the HW Brand! If you can find a piece with the original finish in good condition! SCOOP IT UP!!
An Orange Moon: Heywood Wakefield Dining Set -- "This Heywood Wakefield 6 chair, drop-leaf extension set is from the "Harmonic" line. It is "Honey Wheat" in color and is made of solid Northern Yellow Birch. Did you know that when most designers were starting out, they worked with one company or another to get their footing? Two greats come to mind--Donald Deskey & Paul Frankel!! Yes, those bad brothers designed for Heywood-Wakefield!"
