About

A sculptural set of American 1960s hardwood cherry with a brown doeskin finish and curved steel bases. The rare set is from Heywood Wakefields Cliff House line. A matching dining set available.
Heywood' Fine craftsmanship and last line, was their entry into Space Age and Danish design of the era . The late 1960s brought the Cliff House collection, named for the famous San Francisco hotel. Cliff House was constructed of solid cherry, also in a deep warm brown finish. The new designs included a "square-round" table, pier mirror and captain's chairs, all streamlined and reminiscent of earlier collections but with a definite late-20th century look.
