We had a friend in the early 90's who was obsessed with finding beat-up, old Heywood-Wakefield furniture in shops run by clueless employees for cheap. He and his wife would then painstakingly transform each tore-up bedside table, chest of drawers, and dining set that they would find, into perfect, restored masterpieces. It was so impressive to see the love, time and commitment it took to do the restoration.
In truth, we could never fully appreciate the Heywood-Wakefield furniture on its own due to the signature blond wood, a trait that lived in complete contradiction to our dark, Danish-teak reality. However, it was undeniable that John and Allison’s apartment- Heywood-Wakefield and all- was the most stylish home we’d ever seen.
