Our all-new Adirondack Folding Chair in ‘Forest Green’ finish

Classic American solid wood furniture that’s beautifully designed and built to last has been the signature of Manchester Wood. Our Adirondack furniture has been so popular that our folding Adirondack chair was named Best of the Year by Wall Street Journal in 1999. Today our exclusive all-new Adirondack Folding Chair offers the design, functionality and values that take us back to earlier days of growing up around Lake George in the Adirondacks of New York, just a few country miles from our mill.

The new look of our Adirondack Folding Chair is a melding of classic and contemporary designs, a fresh look to a more original Adirondack chair influence while keeping it comfortable, portable and folding with wide arms and seat legs that provide the same sturdy, timeless quality you’ll find in all the heirloom quality furniture at Manchester Wood. Aside from freshening up our Adirondack chairs this summer, we’re offering new Adirondack furniture like our Adirondack Tete-A-Tete, which combines two Adirondack Folding Chairs and connecting side table into one compact unit – a charming Adirondack set. Also for the first-time we’re offering furniture sets, such as the Adirondack Chair Deluxe Set, Adirondack Couples Set, and Adirondack Deluxe Deck Set. They feature an assortment of products in discounted packages with Adirondack Folding Chairs, Love Seats, Coffee Tables, End Tables, and Foot Rests. 

It’s with great pride we offer these new looks, leading with our Adirondack Folding Chair. Our famous Adirondack chair designs have been on the covers of many top mail-order catalogs and featured by numerous lifestyle brands for years. Its authentic Adirondack style, comfortable design and superior durability make them so popular that we’ve decided to offer this all-new Manchester Wood exclusive design with the same functionality and solid wood craftsmanship. Like all American made furniture from Manchester Wood, our Adirondack furniture comes with our Quality Guarantee; built to last.

“Quality Always Finds A Home”

That’s what a great commercial actor friend of mine Boise Thomas said on his recent trip to visit the mill. He said a lot of other insightful things, but that was one of the last I wrote down as my parents and I sat around listening to all he had to say. Boise has booked over a 100 nationwide commercials, including spots for McDonald’s, Canon, Pillsbury, and more – not to mention time spent as a host for a Discovery channel program and M.C. for various festivals. After all that 15+ years experience acting and hosting he, I could tell, has gained much more than simply acting out a pitch for a brand, he knew what was selling it. From what I could gather from him ‘the sell’ for us is the heirloom quality solid wood furniture we make, the ‘Made in USA’ small town appeal, and the Motel 6 Tom Bodett-style simple, honest, genuine American business language (read that story here) that has a 3rd generation family-run business like Manchester Wood selling furniture; and I’d have to agree.

‘Made in the USA’ furniture is what we are, right to the bone. My grandfather started a metalworking factory in the basement of his home, shook hands with J.C. Penney (the man), and took off with the country he had fought proudly for in the forefront of everything involving his business. “Create U.S. jobs” was always his thing and what he spoke much about around the dinner table.

‘Made in USA’ for us isn’t just a smart marketing slogan for an upcoming hip brand, it’s the gritty truth of Manchester Wood’s always in ALL ways USA made furniture. I think the Tom Bodett, “We’ll leave the light on for you” aspect will find more light later through some upcoming campaigns, but it can also just as easily be seen now through the blogs we’ve been writing and other materials through my father and grandfather. It’s a homey realism of what we have to offer you. No filler, just the facts, and that’s quality solid wood furniture that’ll be an antique someday. American heirloom classics brought to you new, that’s what we make.

I can’t thank Boise enough for a great visit, with a touch of business advice for the family and myself to reflect on. To be proud of what you’re doing is a great feeling, and he sure helped with that. To know “quality always finds a home,” sure let’s me know Manchester Wood: American Made Furniture will always find a home.

Anything you’d like to share with us? On our business and what you’d like to see? Or what you’re feeling proud about doing? Let us know in the comment section below. We’d love to hear from you.

Much Gratitude,
