This boomerang coffee table is one of the more illusive and sought after models from the ubiquitous Acclaim line by Lane. The FMV restoration team brought this neglected orphan back to life and the transformation was significant. The loose legs were detached, re-glued and re-screwed to ensure decades of stability. The foot caps were re-painted and finished to match their original sheen. Scratches and imperfections were mitigated with our proprietary techniques and the top was sealed with multiple coats of hand buffed finish. The color you see is 100% with no additional stain or toner to the original patina.
Please note, the wings are asymmetrical in length. One is 48″ and the other is 44″.
The Lane Acclaim collection has become an American Mid-Century Modern Classic. The two-tone oak on walnut with exaggerated dove-tail design has become sought after by collectors nationwide. Produced for over ten years between the 1960s and early 1970s, the collection features pieces for every home. Sturdy American craftsmanship with a delicate profile borrowed from Scandinavian design. One really gets the best of both world’s with Lane Acclaim
The Lane Acclaim line of furniture is one of our favorites, and it’s enjoying increased popularity as collectible yet functional furniture nearly 60 years after its introduction in 1959.
Designed by Andre Bus, it was created to straddle the allure of modernity with the comfort of tradition. Lane pulled off that balancing act with sleek, Danish-leaning lines and the deft use of walnut and fruitwood. The dovetailing of the two woods on the top of each piece has become iconic.
Lane positioned the mainstream modern line cleverly: craftsman quality at furniture store prices. And their marketing worked well, with untold pieces sold during its run. It became a bona fide bestseller in 1963 and endures in its appeal all these years later.
