Classic Furniture Shaker Style: Solid Wood Desks

January 8, 2014

472.3brandedAt Manchester Wood our solid wood tables and desks are some of the most sought after in American made furniture. As American furniture manufacturers we take pride in the tradition of producing shaker furniture made in the USA entirely, the same as the roots of the timeless tradition began.

Our Shaker Secretary Desk is a solid wood desk that’s handmade for the home office; or  for perhaps as a recipe desk in the kitchen. Customers have also found it to be the perfect laptop computer desk in a small study. The Shaker Secretary Desk is a universal classic shaker desk with great storage design and strong Americana lines.

Here’s what a few customers are saying about it:

Exactly what I wanted
Review by Janice

“The desk is just what I have been looking for. I bought 3 items, my husband put all 3 items together in much less time than he could put together 1 poorly made imported item. The desk is beautiful, solid wood & it was made in AMERICA. Thank you for offering quality furniture.”

Review by picky       

“I am so happy with my little desk. Arrived in perfect condition, easy to assemble, and was surprised by the quality. I can’t believe I was able to get a solid wood, nicely finished product for such a decent price. I have seen particleboard and cheap pine furniture at similar price points. I am also thrilled that it is made in the USA. 100% satisfied.”

Compact Secretary DeskA trimmer version of our Shaker Desk is our Compact Secretary Desk. A shaker table as all our others – handmade and built to last. It’s the perfect size for a work nook in a small living space.

Here’s what a customer says about it:

Review by pj

“This is a high quality piece of furniture. Assembly instructions were easy to follow. The wood is beautiful, and the desk is a great addition to the room where it’s placed. I’m using it for an extra large computer monitor, and there’s enough room to place the speakers on either side. The drawer opens and closes easily. I had hoped that it would be sturdy and as attractive as it appears to be in the photo online. It’s both! If you’re on this fence, I’d strongly recommend that you buy it, and I expect you’ll be as pleased with it as I am. Customer service was outstanding, and the delivery was prompt.”

Take a look at our assortment of Shaker desks, and all our collection of furniture in Shaker style, which combines classic shaker lines with modern Americana flavor to provide a stylish and functional piece of solid wood furniture with a meticulous handcrafted construction.

‘New for 2014’ Product Showcase Collection

December 30, 2013

new-for-2014-collection-bannerWe’re proud to kick off 2014 with a “product showcase” featuring all-new Manchester Wood products for the New Year. The general themes of these pieces has been “nesting,” “space-saving,” “convenient,” “practical,” and most importantly “unique,” and “hard-to-find” anywhere else. We’ve scoured through antique shops and old draft books this past year reinventing the old, as well as completely renovating with the new. Items such as the Compact Workstation Table, which originated from a “gossip bench” concept but has become something entirely new and fresh for the modern day. The Multipurpose Coffee Table Nesting Set of 4, which carries a long name and even a longer list of ways to use it, incorporating TV tray table ideas with coffee table function creating a truly unique and practical offering. Nesting sets in the Shaker table category with Chairside Nesting Tables Set of 3 and 2, the vintage Log Rack also finds a revival, and a few items that came late in 2013 also find a home here.

On our social media and blog you’ll find product spotlights as the weeks go on, including a rotating cast of each products unique back-story.

At Manchester Wood we truly feel honored to provide you the most affordable handcrafted solid wood furniture items entirely ‘Made in the USA’ on the market today. We hope you enjoy these new products as much as we enjoyed making them for you! Happy 2014!
