Combining stylish, contemporary looks with sturdy construction and ease of use, light-colored furniture produced by the Heywood-Wakefield Company from the 1930s to the 1950s was well received in its day and is wildly popular among vintage furniture enthusiasts now. Using hundreds of archival catalog images, this informative book follows the development of Heywood-Wakefield's wheat and champagne finish blond lines from their early streamlined look of the 1930s to the classic "Modern" look of the 1950s. Living room, dining room, and bedroom furniture is included, along with occasional tables and chairs galore. Works from designers Gilbert Rhode, Russel Wright, Ernest Herrmann, and Leo Jiranek are among these smart-looking, timeless pieces that grace fashionable homes today. Includes original catalog descriptions, model numbers, measurements for all pieces, current price guide, and index.
