Manchester Wood: American Made Furniture


‘New for 2014′ Product Showcase Collection

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!
