Heywood-Wakefield Art Deco Furniture

 

In the mid-1820’s five brothers with the Heywood surname started a company of the same name and began producing simple chairs in their barn in Gardner, Massachusetts.  Their simple chairs became very popular and demand grew.  A few years later with business flourishing, the brothers branched out into other furniture.  As their business continued to grow, they acquired other smaller furniture companies, but no acquisition was as important as their 1897 acquisition of the Wakefield Rattan Company.  Thus, the Heywood-Wakefield Furniture Company was born.

In the 1930’s, the Heywood-Wakefield company introduced their “Modern Line” which is what most of us are familiar with when we see Heywood-Wakefield furniture.  Designed by the likes of Russel Wright and Gilbert Rhode and other top notch designers, this furniture is made of solid birch, steam bent and blonde.  This furniture was so popular from the mid-1930’s to the mid-1960’s that other companies started to imitate their color and style and many American homes sported a blonde bedroom at one point or another. However, none is as collectible as the original Heywood-Wakefield furniture.

 

The Heywood-Wakefield Furniture Company closed operations in the late 1960’s, however in 1992 the South Beach Furniture Company bought what was left of Heywood-Wakefield and are now producing some of the original designs.
