Heywood Wakefield Furniture
The photos below show several pieces of Heywood Wakefield, mid century modern furniture that we
have purchased over the years.
We are finally getting around to having them refinished.
The dining chairs below have been in storage and need some work. They need to be tightened up and
cleaned, some more than others. The edges and backs need sanding and maybe stripping.
This chair below is in nice condition but could probably use a cleaning. Looks like the upholstery
