This pair of mid-century Lane side tables make us think about a landmark furniture company.
It was in March 1912 when John Lane purchased a box plant in Altavista, GA. His son Ed, twenty-one at the time with little manufacturing experience, was encouraged by his father to try his hand at starting a chest factory in the newly acquired plant.
Since the Lanes didn’t know how successful their new venture was going to be, they didn’t want to put their name on it, so they incorporated the little company as the Standard Red Cedar Chest Company, with John Lane as President and Ed Lane as Vice President and General Manager. From cedar chests, Lane expanded to occasional tables in 1951, case goods in 1956, and accent pieces in 1965.
Today, the wood and upholstered divisions have become Lane Home Furnishings and a leading company in the industry.
These two round top end or side tables are quite sturdy and feature uncluttered clean lines that are hallmarks of mid century modern furniture design. Visit us soon to see them — they won’t be around long.
