Gift Guide Spotlight: Compact Workstation Table

Compact Workstation Table: Holiday Gift Guide

Transforming an antique invention into a modern, space-saving innovation. Manchester Wood’s President talks about the Compact Workstation Table, featured item in our Holiday Gift Guide.

At Manchester Wood we strive to bring you products that are not only attractive but useful, practical, and provide a solution to your current home furnishing needs. The Compact Workstation Table is a perfect example of that. My wife and I peruse the local antique fairs in Vermont and Upstate New York seeking any items made years ago that could be transformed to a useful product of today.

We found a variation of this item at a recent antique fair. It was very ornate and structurally weak but we thought it could be developed into a unique and very useful product.  The first thing we did was create it with a Shaker design. We believe Shaker fits well in both traditional, as well as contemporary room settings.  We then wanted to look at the size so it could serve as an end table, while also able to swing out with a nested seat for practical use as a small working desk. It is functional, compact, serves several needs, as well as an attractive addition to your home. It takes up the same footprint as a basic end table but transforms into another item altogether.  It even has a shelf under the top to give you more storage space for papers, laptops, or tablets.

Retro Solid Wood Furniture

Retro Solid Wood FurnitureOur Retro solid wood furniture is sure to excite the mid-century enthusiast in new home design. Made from solid hardwood in America with a 100% Quality Guarantee plus Free Shipping!

Manchester Wood has recently reproduced Retro solid wood furniture that we fondly remember our parents and grandparents had in that “Golden Age” of American history, Post-World War II America. High spirits and a booming economy gave birth to the American Dream. Everything seemed a movie back then… it was all about Jackie and Marilyn. JFK and the Beatles. It was a hay-day in American life, and Manchester Wood has brought back a piece of that era with the Retro solid wood furniture collection – the perfect union of past and present design and functionality.

The center piece of the collection is our 2 Tier End Table, a quintessential retro inspiration re-imagined in solid wood. Combined with the Retro Rectangular End Table, Rectangular and Square Coffee Tables and beautiful Console Table, this collection represents a staple in mid-century modern furniture. A step back in time, made perfect for design enthusiasts looking for a more timeless retro style at home. Handcrafted from solid wood and finished in mellow tones of Honey and Auburn, this collection is designed to last for generations.
