Heywood Wakefield / Cliff House Credenza


Most people know Heywood Wakefield for their stylish Streamline Modern furniture of the 1940’s-50’s  but they produced many other lines as well. Shown here is a credenza from their Cliff House collection. Constructed of solid cherry, Cliff House brought Heywood Wakefield from the kitschy 50’s into the classy 60’s, all the while showcasing the top quality design and construction that Heywood Wakefield is known for.


This particular example was restored here at Dashner Design & Restoration and has already found a new owner.  This is only the second Cliff House piece that I’ve come across in the past few years but you never know when one might pop up.  I’ll keep an eye out for more.

‘Till next time, use a coaster!

    I have that buffet, and the dining table/7 chairs. If you ever come across a HW Cliff House Ladder Back Captains chair, or the stacked units — please call! These pieces are very rare! Thanks!

        Hi. I just purchased a Cliff House bedroom set at an estate sale. The tops of both dressers were unfortunately in bad shape. I have sanded them down properly in preperation for refinishing. However, the stain is a hard match. The color is HW’s doeskin finish. Any suggestions. Dashner Designs for stain match? Thanks, Chris S.
