The Heywood Wakefield Company is an American furniture manufacturer established in 1897. In 1921, the name was changed to Heywood-Wakefield Company as we know it today. Heywood Wakefield became the leader in modern furniture of the early 1900s and was produced in Gardner, MA from its beginnings until 1979. By the 1920s, Heywood Wakefield’s lead designers, Paul Frankl and Donald Deskey, were introducing pieces based on the French and American Art Deco and Art Moderne movements which would come of age and grow in popularity during the 1920s to the 1960s. These quintessential Heywood Wakefield pieces became known as the California style of furniture in the 1940s to the 1960s. Heywood Wakefield was the choice for comfortable, good looking, modern furniture. This style of Mid-Century Modern chairs and furniture became popular with young families and particularly, with teens.
