The evocations of retro-futurism and the utopic ideals of the deco-era are a huge part of why we love Heywood Wakefield's modernist furniture. So much so, that we can't let one go to waste when it's destined for the trash heap! Arrived at our doorstep in less than presentable condition, we knew some TLC and time-consuming, methodical work was all it needed to restore the luster of its bygone age.
As always for our Heywood Wakefield restorations, we don't follow the original blueprint to the letter. Rather, we prefer to apply our own sensibilities and make it distinctly "our piece". Whereas the original finishes have an opaque stain and a very thick lacquer, we have emphasized character of the the birch wood, and made sure all of the finish is in the wood, instead of on top of it. Birch is a naturally beautiful wood, with many figures, curls, and stripes, which we've now revealed and deepened; the piece almost appears to shift tone and color depending on the angle and the lighting. We also made sure all of the finish is in the wood, instead of sitting on top of it.
If you're looking for a table that comfortably seats your entire household without choking your ability to move freely through your space but can also accommodate large parties and gatherings, it would be hard to find a better fit than this two-leaf extension table. Sassy, bold, and full of personality in form and in the wild patterns of the birch wood itself, it's certainly a show piece for the dining room.
Each leaf adds 15" to the overall length of the table to a maximum of 90"
Made from solid American birch, we were surprised by how well engineered the design is. The sliding mechanisms are easy to use and robust.
Restored by Niji to emphasize the natural character of the wood.
