Lane Furniture Chest and Cabinet


We've featured quite a few pieces by Lane Furniture over the years.  These are the best!  With a very smart style and scale, this pair could go anywhere.  The chest has three ample drawers with brushed aluminum pulls and legs.  The cabinet also has brushed aluminum pulls and legs, and the doors open to a compartment with one stationary shelf.  Both pieces are newly professionally refinished.  We've never seen any pieces from this collection before and couldn't find any examples online.  Paul McCobb designed a number of lines for Lane and this collection may have been designed by him.  It's very similar to pieces he did for Calvin Furniture.  Either way, the line is fantastic and just as modern today as when it was designed in the early 1960's.  Each piece is 30" w., 17" d., 27.75" h.  American, c. 1960's  SOLD
Condition:  Excellent refinished condition.
