Lane Acclaim MCM Console Table
Available now, this rare Lane Acclaim MCM Console Table belongs to one of the most popular and successful lines of American Mid Century furniture. Designed by Andre Bus for Lane, this Acclaim series console table features a distinct two-tone top made of oak and walnut, rounded tabletop edges, and slim, tapered legs. Note the ubiquitous exaggerated dovetail joints, the hallmark of this highly sought after line. A single drawer featuring a pair of metal pull handles offers convenient additional storage.
From the Lane Acclaim catalog:
“Although contemporary in classification, Acclaim furniture has a distinct hand-crafted quality that gives it unusual warmth and mellowness. Edges are softly rounded and suggest patient hand-working, rubbing, more hand-working and rubbing to achieve the soft, sculptured contours. Only the top 35% grade of walnut on the market is considered for this furniture. Then, out of 100 feet purchased, only 40 feet will meet Lane’s exacting requirements for grain and color. This fine wood is then finished with a mellow gunstock patina, enriched in character with dovetail inlays. Let your finger-tips brush across the satin-sooth dovetailing — you won’t be able to tell where the joinings are. Drawers operate easily and smoothly on steel ball bearing drawer guides.”
Item measures 46” Long x 17 ¼” Wide x 25 ½” Tall.
Good pre-owned condition with wear commensurate with age and use. No repairs visible. Legs are sturdy.
