GOOD DESIGN winnerThe Cumberland Dining Chair wins a 2015 GOOD DESIGN™ Award, as awarded by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design. Click Here for details.

The Cumberland Chair embodies our enduring commitment to simplicity. Though inspired by Danish Modern forms, the Cumberland Dining Chair has its own perspective and is a uniquely artistic interpretation of its historical antecedents.

Perhaps not apparent at first glance are the nuanced relationships of the parts that inform the overall proportion of this chair. Typical of Moser furniture, we've tried to simplify each piece, stripping it to its required elements alone. The opportunity for elevating the modest furniture forms comes through the attention to the relationship of one of these spared parts to another.

The rails that span the legs and support the saddled solid wood seat employ an innovative double-housed mortise and tenon joint - allowing us to achieve the desired simplicity without compromising strength.

Atop the turned tapered legs sits the continuous arm and crest rail. This element is the sum of three pieces, a single solid wood steam bending at the back, joined with the collections hallmark visible finger joint to the arms.

Due to the well-considered geometry of the seat and the relationship to the continuous arm + crest rail, the saddled solid wood seat provides comfort without relying on the use of an upholstered foam seat. We've enabled ourselves to decrease the thickness of the seat which creates a visual lightness which furthers the simplicity that is characteristic of this collection. Like any Moser furniture, this piece is guaranteed for life. We are confident that our innovative joinery has only raised the bar for Moser quality.
