Haywood Wakefield Pieces

Heywood Wakefield Whalebone Table and Chairs
A new client of ours in NYC engaged us to restore and refinish this fantastic dining set. The table and 2 leaves have numerous scratches and dents that need to be carefully repaired before we can thoughtfully refinish it in the traditional Heywood Wakefield wheat color. The chairs needed to be taken apart and re-glued and then refinished to match the table. The client has also provided us with period-appropriate fabric to re-upholster the chairs.

Heywood Wakefield Side Table
This table had a large crack in the surface. We had to re-glue the piece and touch it in to color match the repair to the existing finish.

Mid-Century Modern Dining Table
Our client bought this Heywood Wakefield dining table but wanted it refinished as it had quite a few stains and scratches on the top. Also, since she was having it refinished, she wanted to take the color back to a more natural wood tone.

Heywood Wakefield China Cabinet
A client of ours in NYC asked us restore this wonderful Heywood Wakefield china cabinet. The cabinet was somehow damaged when the client had it moved from San Francisco to NYC. We had to perform quite a few iterations of wood preparation to remove the stains in the wood that were likely made from moving straps. In addition, it seems like the piece had gotten wet during the move, and black mold grew on the area where the moving straps had damaged the piece.

The piece was stripped and we had to use a wood bleach (several times) to eradicate the mold and remove the black stains. We finished the piece in a true-to-color Heywood Wakefield champagne stain for a period appropriate finish.

Pair of Mid-Century Modern Club Chairs
We had "chair envy" for these club chairs. Our Greenport, NY client asked us to refinish the arms on these chairs but in the process not have to remove or damage the great Donghia upholstery. Sounds easy, but we could not remove the arms without taking off some of the fabric. So, we had to carefully cover the fabric and refinish the arms while they were still on the chair. We were able to do the job and leave the fabric in place and undamaged.
