Manchester Wood [2] is a family business that makes built-to-last furniture from local and sustainable wood. Founded in 1976 in Manchester, Vermont, the company produces American-made solid wood furniture using hardwoods like red oak and ash. All of the hardwood used comes from sustainably managed local forests across the Northeast that are certified by the Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI) and Manchester’s Slate Top collection also features local slate that is quarried just a few miles away from their factory.
