The Butterfly Drop-Leaf Dining Table is one of Heywood-Wakefield’s most recognizable pieces. The “butterfly” in the name refers to the small swing-away piece used to support the drop-leaf. A mid-century modern classic, this dining table was designed in 1949, although at first without the butterfly feature.
Like all Heywood-Wakefield furniture, this table is built from solid, high-grade Northern Yellow Birch from sustainable US tree farms. It’s made to last 100 years or longer, which is why so many of our pieces are passed down from generation to generation.
Even with its strong construction and sturdiness, this table features a particularly streamlined design and is ideal for smaller dining rooms. The proprietary Amber finish enhances the natural beauty of the wood while offering significant protection against surface damage.
With its exceptional range of sizes, this is a perfect dining table for anyone who needs flexibility to seat differing numbers of guests. The Butterfly Drop-Leaf Dining Table sits at only 26” long when closed. Open one leaf for a slight extension or both to reach 58” long. Then, you have the option to add the two inserts that come with the table, for a maximum length of 94”.
