Shown: The traditional dining room proves a perfect foil for a vintage Heywood-Wakefield dining table, first issued in 1948, and a handful of Heywood-Wakefield chairs. The candleholders were made by homeowner Heidi Gamma’s grandfather. Original 1930 corner cabinets hold vintage dinnerware; framed mid-century jazz-album covers hang on one wall.
