When we started our company in 1976, American manufacturing was still on top. Then a little something called globalization happened. Companies began to realize that it was cheaper to make things in other countries with cheap labor and lower quality standards and then ship these inferior products back into the country where they could charge higher prices thanks to America’s strong economy. Throughout all this, we remained patient because we knew that we offered a superior product. As America turned its attention towards foreign, inexpensive furniture, we continued to make solid wood tables and chairs that met the highest standards of craftsmanship.
Slowly, as our landfills started to overflow with cheap and broken products made out of particleboard and plastic, America would start to change its habits. Over the past decade or so, there has been a real shift towards buying American again and our patience is being rewarded. Unlike all the new companies that are cropping up to take advantage of the renaissance of American manufacturing, we have almost four decades of heritage behind our USA-made furniture.
There are many advantages to buying our American made furniture. The first, and most obvious, advantage is the superior workmanship and materials that are used to make our products. A related advantage is our willingness to stand behind our products with our 100% quality guarantee.
Another important consideration is our appreciation for the rich heritage of furniture that is made in the USA. For example, our Shaker and Mission collections are both modeled on historically popular styles of design in this country. Another good example is our Adirondack Chair, which we see as the classic piece of upstate NY wood furniture.
Adirondack Chairs are a great example of classic American furniture
Another advantage to buying our furniture is our level of environmental awareness. All of our furniture is made out of North American hardwood from certified sustainable forests across the Northeast. Also, since our furniture doesn’t have to be shipped internationally, less energy is wasted on transport.
Remember to buy American, and we hope you consider Manchester Wood for your next furniture purchase.
Manchester Wood’s solid wood bookcases offer a number of options for keeping things organized while bringing authentic, Americana styling to any home or office setting. Built from renewable American hardwoods and designed for durability, our assortment of solid wood bookshelves will last many generations.
A popular solid wood bookshelf, the Mission Bookcase, is designed for any small spaces around the home. From the family room to the living room, bedroom, or even home office. This solid wood bookshelf is excellent for storing books and other items. There are three fixed shelves to allow for books, software, CDs, plants, toys, towels, or even framed photos of varying sizes.
The new and stylish Mission 3-Shelf Table is a classic piece of solid wood furniture that offers ample storage space with three shelves. As with our entire American made furniture collections, it’s resourced from sustainable American solid hardwood ash. This solid wood bookshelf is 100% made in the USA by our skilled employees and comes with our quality guarantee.
Our Mission 30″ Bookcase is the perfect height for fitting larger items that could not be placed on other solid wood bookcases. Inspired by our popular Mission Underwindow Bookcase design, these solid wood bookcases are likewise a great piece of furniture to use for storage below windows.
The Mission 30″ Bookcase can be used as a hallway table, sofa table, or for storage in a home office. The middle shelf is adjustable, so there is the versatility to customize the bookcase to fit your exact needs.
During the 1950s due to the advent of television, folding tray tables became a popular item with the American public due to their versatility and convenience. At Manchester Wood we pride ourselves on our classically designed folding tray table, as well as the other varying types of solid wood furniture made in the USA we carry. From our wood end tables, bookshelves, desks; our TV tray sets are some of our most popular items.
Whether the Portable Folding Work and Laptop Desk, which is a single folding tray table designed for a mobile workspace with laptops and tablets, or one of our TV tray sets, like the Rectangular Folding TV Tray Table Set of 2, or the Contemporary Folding TV Tray Table Set of 4, we offer several different designs for the perfect function necessary in folding trays for your home over the last 36 years.
Manchester Wood’s made in USA furniture is a stamp of true domestic production. From the lumber, to paint, to the hardware, and of course the craftsmanship, all is entirely produced in America from the foothills of the Adirondacks of New York. If you’re looking for the mobility, versatility, and convenience of folding tray tables, you can seek no further. We believe Manchester Wood is the finest designer and supplier of made in USA TV tray sets in the Americana style, and that’s carried by our family business belief in three principles as a business: Value, Honesty, and Community.
The idea behind a table is relatively simple: a nice elevated surface to keep whatever is on it off of the ground. The idea has been around so long that it seems hard to improve on, but we are constantly thinking about how to make tables that break the mold.
A great example is our Chair Side Storage Table. This table goes great next to your favorite armchair or as a substitute for a wood end table. Storage was one of our primary concerns when we designed the Chair Side Storage Table. Along with the top surface, it features a shelf underneath that is great for books or DVDs. Additionally, it features a compartment that offers hidden storage for TV remotes, glasses, pens or anything else that you want to keep out of the way.

Another versatile table is our Multipurpose Cart. As the named suggests, the cart is designed to be mobile. It features three shelves, meaning that it has plenty of space for magazines, remotes, books and much more. If you need a surface with storage capabilities that can be easily moved from room to room, then this is the piece for you.
One type of table that has gained popularity relatively recently is the TV tray table. Invented in the ‘50s, TV tray tables were designed so that people could eat a meal in front of the TV instead of seated at the kitchen table. TV trays today are used for other tasks too, such as using a laptop in front of the TV or doing homework on the couch.
We offer a variety of Folding Tray Tables. Each set comes with a rack so the folding tray tables can be easily stored when not in use. They are available in sets of two and four, so couples and families should be able to find what they need.
When you are shopping for solid wood furnitures please keep in mind that 100% made in the USA furniture is all we sell. Furthermore, our products are built using only sustainably harvested North American hardwood.
