We've Had This Lane End Table Forever (Seems Like). I Think the Girlfriend Picked This Up at an Estate Sale Years and Years Ago. Status: Been Around.
It's been in steady use all these years too. First supporting a record player, then lately a Predicta TV.
But time moves on. I wanted to put the Predicta on something longer so I brought
out the Heywood Wakefield, even though I haven't finished it. It's a whole "sold the
console stereo, moved the Thayer Coggin sofa in, moved the gondola sofa to fit
with the Thayer Coggin, had a larger space to fill where the Lane table went"
thing. Nevermind. So this is headed for the Garage...though I'm not quite ready to
part with it yet.
Keeping it means keeping my options open. Cuz you know, I need more options.
But when I started looking around for a more appropriately shaped table to take
it's place, I was surprised to find my options limited! The Googie Biomorphic coffee
table just wasn't the right shape. The rest of my side tables where pretty much the
same size as this Lane side table.
Plus, the little details like the upturned edges on the upper level and the way the
bottom level pierces the side support don't show up every day. One shouldn't take
such details for granted, right? Plus, It's not really up to me. The Girlfriend bought
it. She's got the final say.
One thing's for sure, with the crappy weather...it wouldn't be going anywhere soon
even if it was available!
