Set of Six Restored Heywood Wakefield M1553 A Cat’s Eye Dining Chairs

Out of stock


Set of six restored Mid-Century Modern Heywood Wakefield M1553A dining chairs. The “Cat’s eye” dining chairs feature a distinctive inverted double-bow back rest. This arched motif resembles the shape of a cat’s eye, hence the nickname. Our chairs have been worked by our restoration team to remove years of wear on the signature arches and arm rests. The seats have all been updated with new upholstery. The fabric choice speaks to the period. The earth tone fabric lies somewhere between burnt orange and brown with subtle golden highlights. The neutral fabric compliments the wheat finish on the wood. The set includes two arm chairs and four side chairs. All solid wood, American made… timeless quality that keep’s collectors coming back to Heywood Wakefield. We have several pieces from this collection including and extra seventh chair (sold separate). Reach out if you are interested in the seventh chair. We also have the matching wishbone dining table, a desk, several bookcases and chests.
