Mid-Century Modern Lane Rhythm Collection Walnut End Tables a Pair

$2,495per set

About

Classic Mid-Century Modern pair of end tables by Lane Furniture for their Rhythm Collection comprised of walnut and brass plated metal hardware. Beautiful condition, keeping in mind that these are vintage and not new so will have signs of use and wear. There are two small light spots on the top and we have done light re-staining on all finished surfaces. Please see photos and zoom in for details. We attempt to portray any imperfections. Circa, 1964. Yes, you are seeing double!! What a fabulous pair of Lane Rhythm Collection end tables!! As written in the brochure “the distinctive design of the Rhythm Collection is best described as softly sculpted legs and rails which flow together as a single molded unit. Figured walnut heartwood, bordered with a slightly lighter shade of walnut is used for the tops. The tops are indented from the rails just enough to emphasize the sculptured, unitary construction. And a lovely oil finish completes a picture of clean, fluent lines and tastefully restrained elegance in contemporary styling.” These tables are simply that…elegant and designed with a style like only Lane Alta Vista can create. They are marked on the bottom of each table drawer, one is dated 04/04/64 and the other is dated 04/11/64. They each have a single drawer with lovely brass plated metal hardware. They are gorgeous in their simplicity and ready for you to place on each side of a lounge chair, loveseat, or sofa and adorn them with a pair of fabulous lamps. Or, if you have a low mid-century bed, they could make a nice pair of nightstands. Rhythm. In art, a harmonious sequence of correlation of colors or elements. What a perfect way to describe these gorgeous end tables by Lane Alta Vista. They are truly a work of art! Lane was founded in 1912 by Edward Hudson Lane at the age of 21, upon his father’s suggestion after he, John Edward Lane, bought a small packing-box plant in Altavista, Virginia. Edward procured a loan and converted the factory to make cedar chests and named it The Standard Red Cedar Chest Co. Sales were good and the company expanded. But during WWI, with the banning of rail freight deemed non-essential, they began making pine ammunition boxes. This is notable as it led to an assembly line which was revolutionary and became the first moving conveyor assembly system in the furniture industry. After the war with sales still increasing Ed Lane decided he could risk giving the company his name and changed it to The Lane Co. in 1922. They began advertising and an ambitious program of research and development leading to hiring their first staff designer and sales force. They made it through the depression with a lot of hard work and again during WWII converted to providing items needed for wartime. After WWII a complete design department was added. They were innovative creating new materials. One called Lanewood which was produced from waste wood. 1951 brought the making of occasional tables. Then in 1956 the acquisitions began of other companies to add case goods and upholstered furnishings. With production of their mid-century-modern furnishings, the company continued to grow and expand until in 1987 it was acquired by Interco, Inc. But, for 75 years the Lane family of Altavista, Virginia ran the business with Edwards son, Bernard Bell (B.B.) Lane, being at the helm at the end. Lane is still to this day a leading U. S. furniture manufacturer. These Lane Rhythm Collection end tables have everything you’re looking for. They are classic, timeless, and iconic…you simply MUST make them yours!!

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.
