2015 and 2016 Best of Houzz in Design and Service Award Winner, Carl Mattison lends a hand to Manchester Wood, beginning with our fresh new dark finish… ESPRESSO.
“I look for that classic richness for many of my clients that comes with Espresso finish on accent furniture like Manchester Wood’s… it blends with almost everything well and is timeless!”
The team met to discuss next year’s financial plan last week. We talked through our rollout plans for several new exciting styles arriving this fall and our plan to expand our offering of the Espresso finish as an option we think you will like. We also highlighted and discussed those styles we receive orders for more frequently.
We thought it would be interesting to show you our top product list, highlighting the top three best-selling items at Manchester Wood over the past year.
#3 Top Selling Item
Mission 48” Media Stand
Our overall lineup of mission furniture is always popular with our customers. This style is popularly associated with the American Arts and Crafts movement. The roots of this movement emphasized distinct and stylish craftsmanship and simplicity of form. We use sustainable local natural materials and our customers routinely call or write to comment on the quality of our Mission 48 inch. Media Stand.
#2 Top Selling Item
Adirondack Chair Couple Set
Our history selling Adirondack & Outdoor furniture dates back some time. Our blog post from two weeks ago gave you more detail about that story. We are proud of our history providing our customers this timeless style of outdoor furniture and in many ways our success as an American Made furniture company brand was built around producing a variety of unique options for the marketplace.
# 1 Top Selling Item
Cherry Contemporary Tray Table Set of 4
Our most popular items by far are the tray table sets. If you haven’t purchased one of these well designed trays from our extensive lineup you may want to consider it. These consistently receive great product reviews and provide our customers with a wide range of functionality in their homes or at their place of business. Early the company’s founder Cliff Pierce would demonstrate the strength of these tables by standing on top of them during sales presentations.
Manchester Wood celebrates 39 years in business. But more importantly, it’s employee milestones.
President Ed Eriksen started off today’s luncheon celebration with reviewing basics: safety news, facility questions, and the current and future sales outlook. He then promptly moved into employee milestones with what he called, “a full house.” Three 25-year employees and two 10-year employees “making a helluva hand.”
Day one, 39-year employees Bev H. and Mike H. took their honorable seats at the front as we welcomed 25-year employees Jim D., Laurie B., and Judy C., along with 10-year, Jose F. and Bill T. to the milestone club.
