Mid-Century Round Cocktail Table, Lane Acclaim

Mid-Century Round Cocktail Table, Lane Acclaim


A mid-century Round Cocktail table from the Lane Acclaim line from Snowdrift Antiques.


The Lane Furniture Company was founded in Altavista, VA in 1912. For decades they were known for their cedar chests. By 1950 they saw Danish modern furniture imports begin to take hold in households. The Acclaim line of Lane furniture was one of their first and probably their most recognizable foray into this market.

The Acclaim line is often called “the dovetail collection” for its striking use of oak, walnut and fruit woods to create a non-functional but highly decorative and contrasting dovetail look. This line was designed by Andre Bus and introduced in 1958 and produced through the very early 1970s.

Lane went to extreme lengths to make sure the wood chosen for Acclaim furniture was of the highest quality.

~ Original Lane Acclaim advertisement~
“The inlaid dovetailed border. The warm, rich, seasoned walnut. The satiny finish only hand-rubbing can achieve! One after another, custom details you’ll see in every beautiful Acclaim table by Lane! And underneath it all – craftsmanship where it counts! In the sturdy top that won’t warp, won’t split. In joinings locked to a grown-together fit. In legs so exact, so firmly planted, there’s no rock, no wobble, no place for it to start! Indeed the proudest cabinetmaker might have made this table. But never at anything near the modest Lane price you pay!”

This is a beautiful coffee table of the Lane Acclaim line. The grain and color contrast of the wood used is striking. The table is marked extensively underneath. This is Style 900-93 and is called “Round Cocktail Table”. It has a Serial Number of 460340, indicating it was built in on April 30, 1964. This style has a stretcher on all four sides underneath the top surface.

It measures 36 inches in diameter x 14 ½ high.

This coffee table is in very good vintage condition. You can tell it has not been refinished by the natural contrast between the light and dark wood. There is some age appropriate wear on the top but nothing serious. It was used and enjoyed. It is structurally solid as promised in the Lane advertisement.

This is a beautiful mid-century Lane Acclaim coffee table that is sure to make a 1960s statement in any living room. We also have a Lane Acclaim Step End table and a Lane Acclaim Flat End table in this shop.
