This set had been posted for a month and a half by the time I stumbled across it! I emailed the sellers on the slimmest of chances that it hadn’t sold already, and was completely surprised to hear back from them the next day. At the listed price, I don’t know how someone didn’t just buy it as a plain and simple dining set, mid century modern style or not!
Somehow I thought that we would be able to fit everything you see above (along with an extra side chair) in the back of our F-150… Thankfully, Bryan set me straight on that matter, and my wonderful mom followed us there and took home the two captain’s chairs, which absolutely would not fit in the truck bed.
Love the lines of the table and chairs! The fabric has been replaced at some point and is in fabulous condition – totally not my style, but totally looks awesome.
The china cabinet is in two pieces – sideboard and hutch, and the sideboard came in pretty rough condition:
Some Restor-A-Finish took care of everything except for that little red spot, however that’s covered by the hutch part that sits on top. Doesn’t it look great now?
Sigh. One of these days I’m going to stop filling up the front living room with furniture so that I can get to sanding that ceiling! No promises though…
Wish I knew more about this lovely set! The back of the china cabinet appears to have a date in 1969 written on it, but other than that I couldn’t find any identifying marks. The china cabinet especially is pretty amazing – there is some seriously beautiful wood-grain detail inside the hutch and even inside the doors of the sideboard. Let me know if you have any leads!

Love this set. I'm having serious CL withdrawals here in Germany, so I'll have to live vicariously through, ok? ;
The cabinetry looks like Lane Rhythm, but the door fronts don’t quite match my set. Likewise, the chairs have some lines similar to Lane, but again, not a match–most notably the top rail on the back and the arms on the armchairs also don’t match the Lane line, but definitely pay some homage to it. Lane marks their pieces pretty prominently with their own logo, and if you read the serial number backwards, you’ll get the manufacturing date. For example, if the piece is marked 370140 (the number on my table), the manufacturing date is 04-10-73. Sometimes there’s an extra character in this number to indicate the particular location of manufacturing. So, this could be a variation on a well-known Lane line, or it could be a knockoff. It’s a beautiful set, either way!
