In 1912, the Lane family started the Standard Red Cedar Chest Company, with John Lane as President and Ed Lane as Vice President and General Manager. From cedar chests, Lane expanded to occasional tables in 1951, casegoods in 1956, and accent pieces in 1965.
In 1972, Lane bought a small reclining chair company in Tupelo, Mississippi, named Action Industries. Action sustained tremendous growth through gains in market share and product diversification through the next 20 years becoming a major force in the upholstered furniture industry. Eventually, Action changed its name to Lane Furniture. Lane’s passion is to develop furniture that gives consumers the ultimate place to escape, relax, and unwind. Lane is dedicated to bring to market new technologies, innovations, and evolution of products. This is based on consumer testing research and is what assures our dealers that Lane is on the forefront of innovating products that consumers want. Lane promises to deliver comfortable, quality, and innovative furniture that today’s consumer desires. Our price is just as comfortable as our furniture.
