ABOUT

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!!
