Springtime Means Outdoor Furniture

February 28, 2013

Believe it or not, the official start of spring is less than a month away. Soon, outdoor activities will shift from shoveling snow and bringing in wood to bonfires and lounging by the pool. As the hills around our upstate New York factory slowly come to life, we find ourselves casting our minds forward to long evenings and warm, starry nights.

We see solid wood outdoor furniture as an essential part of enjoying the warmer months. Our Outdoor Furniture Collection offers a great assortment of rockers, tables, footrests and Adirondack Chairs.

Adirondack Chairs have been produced by upstate New York wood furniture makers for over a hundred years. When we started our business three decades ago, they were one of our first offerings and they continue to be some of our best sellers. One feature that we are especially proud of is that all of our solid wood Adirondack Chairs can be folded for easy storage.

Long ago, we realized that many people would leave their outdoor furniture out all winter just because it was a pain in the neck to store. With folding Adirondack chairs, proper winter storage is a cinch, and proper storage leads to longevity. Another great thing about our folding Adirondack Chairs is that we offer multiple sizes for toddlers, children and adults. This way, the whole family can be comfortable outside.

Another great option for solid wood outdoor furniture is our Equinox line. Named after nearby Mount Equinox in Manchester, VT, this line offers a selection of sturdy, simple outdoor furniture. Our Equinox Bench, for example, is great for seating more than one person. For those in search of maximum outdoor relaxation, we recommend our Equinox Rocker, which works great on any deck or patio.

If you do end up buying some of our outdoor furniture (or if you’re already a satisfied customer), you can take pride in knowing that we only sell 100% American made furniture. Furthermore, all of our products are made out of sustainably harvested North American hardwood, which helps to ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy their summers outside as much as we do today.

Shaker Style: An American Made Furniture Tradition

February 22, 2013

Our Shaker Collection features beautiful American hardwood tables, Shaker desks, and media TV stands. As Wikipedia describes, “Shaker furniture is widely admired for its simplicity, innovative joinery, quality, and functionality… Collections of Shaker furniture are maintained by many art and historical museums in the United States and England, as well as in numerous private collections. The underlying principles of Shaker design have given inspiration to some of the finest designers of modern furniture.”

Manchester Wood: American Made Furniture



I found Manchester Wood because I was looking for a stepping stool.  And I feel like I found an American gem.   The stool is simply beautiful. Quality craftsmanship. Functional. Just the right height and weight.  And beautifully designed and crafted.  Who would have ever thought that a stepping stool could be an object of beauty?  Clearly, Manchester Wood really is about delivering quality, well designed, American-made, all-wood furniture.  It has won my future business!


Thanks so much for your timely attention to our broken T.V. stand piece.  All is well with the set and I will definitely recommend Manchester Wood to friends and family.


I thought you’d like to know that the cart just arrived and that I’m delighted with it.  It is sturdy and well made and is going to be very useful.  Thank you too for the speedy delivery. 


Wow, that was quick.  I’ll probably buy it just for the service!
