Solid Wood Furniture: Who’s Asking?

Solid Wood Furniture Cherry Coffee TableSolid wood furniture is a top keyword phrase on the internet when searching for solid furniture that’s long lasting in appeal and function, why?

As American furniture manufacturers focused on solid wood furniture we can’t help but watch consumer demand for solid wood furniture and furniture made in the USA in general. It is after all what we produce here in the Adirondack foothills of upstate New York. We’ve long since understood the value of sturdy solid wood furniture over flimsy cheap particle board furniture that can only be assembled once in one location of the house. Forget moving it, it may never work the same way again.

That’s why we continue to make the commitment to affordable, solid wood furniture backed by quality, honest customer care. So why solid wood? We think so many are searching for it because it has lasting natural beauty and durability. For us, making our furniture from solid wood is as natural as it gets, and we think our customers feel the same. The American hardwoods that we use for our furniture are native Northeastern hardwood species like White Ash, Red Maple, Beech, and more. These species produce beautiful wood that is ideal for crafting quality solid wood furniture with timeless appeal. Something we think many customers are searching for: honest, sturdy, solid furniture. So when customers search for solid wood furniture and buy ours, they can be certain that it has been built out of high quality local wood that will last for decades. This durability ensures that Manchester Wood furniture is an excellent possibility for those interested in heirloom pieces.

Find Solid Furniture in Solid Wood Bookshelves

When seeking a solid, sturdy furniture piece I can’t help but think an important one would be a solid wood bookshelf. They hold small artifacts of our lives – awards, nick-knacks of travels, novels that we hold dear, cookbooks that nourish us, and important guides as references throughout our day. Bookshelves are an important aspect at home, and at Manchester Wood we not only specialize in solid furniture that’s built to last generations, we also specialize in solid wood bookshelves that are built to last generations while holding the items you hold close along the way.

Mission 46" Bookshelf

A few examples from our Mission Collection, would be our Mission 46” Bookshelf, which is a classic piece of solid wood furniture that offers ample storage space with three fixed shelves. Also, the Mission Bookcase carries five shelves featuring two adjustable shelves to allow for items of varying heights. Then there’s the Mission Underwindow Bookshelf with Adjustable Shelf, which was designed to provide the most storage in the smallest amount of space. It features an adjustable shelf for easily customized storage; and its compact profile means it can fit in any number of tight spaces. The Mission 30” Bookshelf, at just 30 inches high is designed to fit into larger vertical spaces than the Mission Underwindow Bookshelf design. The extra height allows for larger books, or other items. With an adjustable shelf in the middle there is versatility to make the bookcase fit your needs exactly. Of course all our mission furniture is made from sustainable American solid hardwood ash, and 100% made in the USA by our skilled employees with our Quality Guarantee.

At Manchester Wood we also produce some of the finest top end tables in the country. When seeking small end tables and end tables with storage look no further than ManchesterWood.com. Our wooden end tables however bridge to bookshelves with the Chairside Bookshelf, merging a solid wood bookshelf with a small end table at only 11” wide. It’s a great space saver! With two shelves to display your favorite books, collectibles, or magazines and a top surface that doubles as an end or side table it makes a great alternative for compact solid wood bookshelves.

All our products are crafted at our own mill in the Adirondack foothills of New York.
