Vintage Tablescape Thursday!

This week’s vintage tablescapes come from New Creative Home Decorating, published in 1954.  Each of these tablescapes feature furniture from the Heywood Wakefield company, one of the most famous makers of 1950s ‘blonde’ furniture.  The first image features Heywood Wakefield’s ‘dogbone’ dining chairs, buffet, and other furniture, along with some tropical flowers for the table.

The second photo shows Heywood Wakefield’s ‘wish-bone’ dining table and buffet.  I think it’s interesting that part of the table is unextended and that the centerpiece is shown off-center.

I saved my favorite of the three for last.  Mostly because I have the darker-wood version of the buffet in my own dining room!  And because of the lovely fiestaware.  Not too sure about the brick wallpaper though!

    Oh I love vintage, especially this time period too. I have a Baldwin Acrosonic piano in my studio that is this same wood from the same period, which I love. Thanks for sharing these fab photos!!
