MCM Chrome & Walnut Veneer Display Cabinet or Room Divider 3 Piece Unit by Lane

$4,995per set

About

Gorgeous MCM (a.k.a. mid-century modern) chrome and walnut veneer entertainment display cabinet or room divider 3-piece unit by Lane Furniture Style #1480 69. Comprised of two tall, chromed metal tube frame units with walnut veneer cabinets, upper and lower external glass shelves, new inner glass shelves, and a chromed metal tube and glass sofa or console table. Beautiful condition, keeping in mind that this is vintage and not new so will have signs of use and wear. The unit with the lower cabinet has 2 little dings on the top and a light water ring. The unit with the higher cabinet has a tiny divot on the top. We think the original finish is lovely, so we just restored it and filled in a couple of wood chips. Chrome could have light scratches, but everything has been polished and looks fabulous and all of the glass is new. Please see photos and zoom in for details. We attempt to portray any imperfections, Circa 1974. WOW!!!! You know that feeling when you see something, and you simply MUST have it?? Well, that’s exactly what happened when we laid eyes on this PHENOMINAL display cabinet by Lane Furniture! We are ALL in LOVE with this stunning three-piece mid-century modern to modern entertainment or display cabinet…which could also be used as a room divider as the backside is beautifully finished. Comprised of polished chromed metal tubing with chromed molded plastic corners, upper and lower glass shelves, and each unit holds a walnut veneer cabinet that is fixed in place, and a narrow-chromed metal tube and glass sofa or console table. The whole unit is modular so you can mix & match the way you want it to look. The doors on both cabinets have beautiful walnut veneer and chrome double ring pulls with an accent inlay of a vertical veneer stripe behind the handles…it’s just gorgeous!! The unit with the higher fixed cabinet has a walnut drawer inside with a white laminate desktop and a small new glass shelf on adjustable brackets. The new glass shelves are not shown in photos. This unit could be used as a secretary or small desk. The unit with the lower fixed cabinet has the option of leaving it as open storage or it comes with a new glass shelf you can place on the adjustable brackets. Both units have external upper and lower glass shelves. Each unit does have holes with clear plugs on the chromed tubing where it may be possible to add additional shelves if you want, and we could custom cut those for you if you desire. Three ¼ inch beveled glass shelves would be an additional $125.00 if you choose that option. We don’t have the original literature for this awesome entertainment center, so we aren’t sure exactly what the holes were intended for. The Lane logo is embossed/cast in the joints of the chrome plated plastic corners and OH MY GOODNESS, we haven’t even mentioned the fabulous narrow rectangular chromed metal and glass sofa or console table!! It can be used with OR without the other two pieces! There are SO MANY possibilities and ways to use this stunning modular entertainment or display cabinet. We think a tall sculpture on one and a wonderful lamp on the other would be great, but it would also be a magnificent room divider, or you can use all three pieces separately! If you love this entertainment center HALF as much as we do, you better hurry and make it yours…before we change our minds!! Each tall unit: • Height – 62.5 inches • Width – 33 inches • Depth – 15 inches • Upper cabinet weight – 96 pounds • Lower cabinet weight – 81.9 pounds Sofa/Console table: • Height – 25 inches • Width – 15 inches • Depth – 55 inches • Weight – 26.7 pounds Crated size: • Height – 74 inches • Width – 43 inches • Depth – 21 inches • Weight – 350 pounds.

About the Maker

Lane Furniture

When the first iteration of the Lane Furniture company began to produce its now-famous Lane cedar chests in the early 20th century, the family behind the brand was unsure of how successful they’d be, so they initially didn’t bother adding their name to the offerings.The manufacturer was off to a modest start but the family was industrious: The Lanes were made up of farmers and contractors who’d built more than 30 miles of the Virginian railroad. They owned a cotton mill and purchased thousands of acres of land in Campbell County, Virginia, where the Virginian railroad was intended to cross the main line of the Southern Railway. The Lanes intended to start a town in this region of the state, and by 1912, streets for the town of Altavista had been laid out and utility lines were installed. In the spring of that year, John Lane purchased a defunct box factory at a bankruptcy auction. His son, Edward Hudson Lane, was tasked with the manufacturing of the cedar “hope” chests for which the Lane family would become known, even though the company was initially incorporated as the Standard Red Cedar Chest Company.The Standard Red Cedar Chest Company struggled in its early days but introduced an assembly system at its small factory after securing a contract with the federal government to produce ammunition boxes made of pine during World War I. The company prospered and applied mass-production methods to its cedar-chest manufacturing after the war, and, in 1922, rebranding as the Lane Company, it implemented a national advertising campaign to market its products. Ads tied the company’s strong cedar hope chests to romance. Anchored by copy that read “The gift that starts the home,” the campaign rendered a Lane cedar chest a necessary purchase for young women to store linens, clothing and keepsakes as they prepared to marry.Wartime production during World War II had Lane producing aircraft parts. In the 1950s, the family-owned company began to branch out into manufacturing tables, bedroom pieces and other various furnishings for the entire home. The brand’s vintage mid-century furniture is highly sought after.Lane’s Acclaim walnut furniture line, which, designed by Andre Bus, has been compared to Drexel’s Declaration series for its blend of modern furniture’s clean contours and traditional craftsmanship. Ads for the Lane series suggested that it included “probably the best-selling table in the world.” (There are end tables, cocktail tables and more in the Acclaim collection, sporting graceful tapered legs and dovetail inlays.) Later, during the 1960s, Lane offered handsome modular wall units designed by the likes of Paul McCobb. Today, the company is owned by United Furniture Industries and is particularly well-known for its upholstered furniture.Vintage Lane furniture is generally characterized by relatively neutral styles, which are versatile in different kinds of interiors, as well as good quality woods and careful manufacturing. All of these attributes have made Lane one of the most recognizable names in American furniture.Browse storage cabinets, tables and more from Lane Furniture on 1stDibs.
