Why Solid Wood Tables Make Sense

Solid Wood Tables at Manchester WoodAs we approach Earth Day we ponder thoughts of ‘eco-conscious’ consumerism and why solid wood tables at home for a green friendly environment are a must.

For us, making solid wood tables is as natural as it gets. The American hardwoods that we use for our furniture are the Native Northeastern hardwood species White Ash, Red Maple, and Red Oak, as well as Beech and Solid Cherry hardwood. We generally make our solid wood tables out of Cherry, Ash, and Beech. These species are ideal in producing quality solid wood furniture with timeless appeal, while also carrying longevity in value. When customers buy our wood furniture 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 choice in affordable heirloom pieces.

So specifically… Why Solid Wood Tables?

When you shop for tables in your home its important to factor in 3 things: Value, Cost, and Function. Our solid wood tables at Manchester Wood answer to all three. Value in the essence of where they come from, how they are produced, and the fact that this value in quality doesn’t lead to the dumpster. Cost by its affordable price. At Manchester Wood there is simply no one else making American made solid wood furniture at the price points we provide. There’s no material difference. As one of our customers Dennis said, “On time, on price, on quality. The way it’s supposed to be.” We believe in that mantra. And lastly… Function. Whether through the quirky, unique design of our Chairside Storage Table, the practical Chairside Drawer Table, or our stylish contemporary end tables, we certainly provide function among those choices, and the many other options throughout our current 12 collections. Take a look around, and you’ll decide which have the best function for you.

We truly believe you’ll find the value, price, and function of all our handcrafted solid wood tables.

We fondly remember the furniture 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 idealized “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 solid wood Retro Collection – the perfect union of past and present design and functionality.

The quintessential retro inspired collection reimagined in handcrafted solid wood touches on five hallmark items. The 2 Tier End Table, a mid-century design classic you’ll cherish.
