Gift Guide Spotlight: Chairside Drawer Table

Holiday Gift Guide: Chairside Drawer Table

Smaller spaces means space-saving furniture. Manchester Wood’s President writes about the popular Chairside Drawer Table, which is apart of our Small Space Solutions category. Featured item in this month’s Holiday Gift Guide.

We are finding most homes today have smaller rooms and tighter spaces in which to live. Having a narrow table to fit into these tight spaces has become very important for the homeowner, apartment dweller, or condominium resident. Our first ‘Chairside’ table was our Chairside Storage Table which has hidden storage under half of the top. Based on the success of this item, we realized that another option would be to have a drawer under the top to allow for even more storage space.  At the same time we also came up with making the drawer accessible from both ends of the table, so if you had it next to a chair that was out in an open space, the drawer could be opened from either end. Having it only 11” wide makes for a perfect table to put between a chair and couch or other narrow spaces in your living area. It also has plenty of room to hold a lamp or reading materials on the bottom shelf.

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.
