With a garage for a workshop and a $5,000 investment, The Wood Carte was initially launched in 1982 by brothers Lindsay, Kelly and Chris Carte. Although The Wood Carte has continued to evolve, the ultimate goal remains the same today as it was in the very beginning – unequaled selection and consistent value in real wood home furnishings.
Kelly and Lindsay have since retired, leaving Chris to mold the next generation of Cartes. His son Jeremy is now a vital link in the family business.
Chris attributes much of The Wood Carte’s success to long-term, loyal employees. Customers appreciate dealing with the same knowledgeable, courteous people who have been with The Wood Carte for many years. The production team is also top-notch, consistently producing beautiful results.
The Wood Carte has a renewed focus on an even greater selection of well-crafted, durable American-Made items. In fact, about 85% of the products in our showroom are Made in America, and it is our goal to continue to search for all things wooden and well made.
The Wood Carte has evolved to become the largest provider of Amish made real wood furniture in New York. Our Queensbury, NY showroom is over 24,000 square feet! If you haven’t stopped in for awhile, you’ll be amazed at the selection, the quality, and most of all, the outstanding value.
