Why It’s Now Time For You To Purchase Those TV Tray Tables You’ve Been Thinking About…..

May 14, 2018

If you have been thinking of buying some TV Tray tables and are starting to get excited that the days of watching television, while balancing a dinner plate on one knee – are potentially over, then you’ve come to the right place! These handy little, foldable tables will make your relaxing time a lot easier and more enjoyable. They are great for serving dinner or snacks, but also convenient when you need extra space for large family gatherings on holidays or big events. Also, a student’s favorite for setting up their laptop and working on that research paper in between commercial breaks. Not only is it multifunctional, but always a perfect birthday, graduation, or holiday gift for that “hard to shop” for person in your life.

A TV tray table, a TV dinner tray table, or a laptop table can all be relatively similar in that they are all usually some type of smaller, collapsible furniture that functions as an easily portable table.

TV tray tables first became popular in the early 1950s during the times when “TV dinners” became an iconic term and families watched shows together like “American Bandstand” or “I Love Lucy.” National advertising for TV tray tables first appeared in 1952, a full year before Swanson introduced the TV dinner in October 1953.

The actual inventor of TV tray tables is unknown. The original, popular model of TV tables consisted of two pieces: a metal tray with grips mounted on its underside, and a set of tubular metal legs with rubberized tips at the bottom. As times changed, so did construction techniques and design.

Fast forward to today, take a look at our rectangular folding TV tray table. It can be considered a “modern” design, but it has been a customer favorite of over thirty years. It is crafted from sustainable Northeast hardwood at our mill in the Adirondack foothills of New York and built to last for generations. This piece comes in a set of four so no one in the family is left out and we offer a variety of different finishes to be sure to match any type of décor that fits your taste. Our finishes come in golden oak, chestnut, espresso, driftwood grey, and rustic whitewash! For more information on this particular piece, or to purchase, you can visit it here

Cherry Wood TV Trays

January 2, 2015

Cherry Wood TV Trays - Manchester WoodCherry Wood TV Trays are a new addition to ManchesterWood.com. They provide a luxury appeal to an already customer favorite TV Tray Table line.

When the idea of Cherry Wood TV Trays came up we were excited. Our solid ash hardwood TV Tray Tables have been a tremendous customer favorite for years, and we had yet to add a “luxury line” to an already quality line far superior to many competitors. This came through the natural process of milling and crafting our TV tray design with solid cherry hardwood, a pinnacle species of high-end handcrafted American hardwood furniture. The Cherry (American Black) grows in the Eastern USA and Canada. It’s very limited, and has a gorgeous finish. A true conversation piece in any home. The Cherry tree, which is naturally harvested following strict guidelines of quality forestation, can reach heights of up to 100 feet, about 80 feet on average, with a tall trunk of about 24” in diameter.

If you own, or have seen our TV Tray Tables, check out these new exclusive additions in Cherry Wood TV Trays. And if you’re new to our products, even the better, as our quality line of folding TV Tray Tables provides you an expanded array on first glance.

Tired of crappy, wobbling tray tables that don’t fit your home decor? Look no further. We have you covered right here.
