Heywood Wakefield is prominently known for its bold and funky designs, but few know that they also dabbled in a lighter touch with a Scandinavian-inspired line of furniture throughout the 50s and 60s. Proving that their keen eye was no fluke, they produced a desk that avoids the pitfalls American manufacturers often run into with their takes on Danish Modernism: heavy-set features, inattention to detail, and inelegant proportions for the sake of rigid construction. Instead, it's obvious Heywood Wakefield understood the philosophy underpinning the Danish aesthetic and managed to apply their brand of craftsmanship to that without sacrificing the qualities that make Danish furniture so desirable, and if it weren't for the 100% solid wood build, it would be easy to mistake it for an imported model.
Full of elegant arcs and tapers, with a x-shaped leg base that volumetrically reduces the silhouette and makes the dresser appear lighter. The edges around the drawers are beveled slightly, and there's a wave-like raised lip on the back edge of the top that helpfully prevents items from sliding off and falling behind. Weighty brass pulls adorn the top drawers. 5 drawers in all.
Restored to emphasize the character of the wood grain. Wood is likely elm.
