Lane logo explained?

Hi all!

Recently I had the privilege of speaking with a furniture designer who worked at Lane for more than two decades.  I may have more to say about this conversation later.

However, for now, he shed some light on what the ears or handles on the side of the Lane logo are supposed to represent.  Here are some examples…

Single line surrounding words

According to this source, the sides of the logo box are meant to represent the handles and rolls of an old-timey scroll opened to reveal the logo.  I don’t see it, but that’s what we are going with for now.

What do you think?

Again, hopefully more nuggets from my new contact in the future.

  1. Chad, I live near Altavista, Va. where the Lane plant is (or was) fact, I worked at Lane. My Mother worked in the plant where the made those little chest. She sprayed the and put the finish on them. I worked in the office there for 35 years.


    • Gwen,
      I am just leaving Altavista – literally in the Richmond airport flying home after 2 days in Altavista doing research. I was at the Avoca TGIF event and talked to a bunch of people around town over the last couple of days. What a coincidence! The local paper interviewed me about my research and you may want to watch for that. I’m sure I talked to a bunch of people you know! Crazy, huh. Anyway, I will be posting on this blog about my visit when I get home – over the next week or so as time permits. Thank you for the kind words!
