ABOUT

This is the perfect little side table! Classic. Modern. Strikingly simple. Very versatile. Made in 1970 by Lane Alta Vista of solid walnut with a quartered diagonal walnut inlay it is sure to be phenomenal wherever you use it. Light weight enough to move from here to there easily. Strong enough to even be an extra seat if needed. It will be ideal in your mid-century modern or modern home. Or if you have an industrial loft…it will be perfect there. And will even be perfect in your modern country ranch house.

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.

I love this little modern versatile table! You will too. Just make it yours!
