[ Evolving the Moser aesthetic while remaining true to the ideals that Tom Moser himself established in the beginning ]

an unwavering commitment to excellence

A follow up to last fall's dining collection launch of Cumberland, Hartford is a living collection. Like Cumberland, the intention of the design is to embody and magnify all things Thos. Moser; a dedication to functionally driven objects, formal simplicity, the characteristic elimination of ornament, use and celebration of traditional materials and woodworking techniques-all with an emphasis on craftsmanship.

Our advanced technology and machining capabilities have elevated what is possible in craft. The design of this collection aims to embrace these capabilities and define 'visible joinery' in a new way with the collection's hallmark joint. The joint occurs at many intersections throughout the collection and is the result of a solid or steam bent piece being turned and mortised on the 5 axis CNC machine - a part otherwise difficult and inefficient to create. The hairline reveal serves to amplify the subtly of the joint and draw attention to the intersection itself.

The Hartford Living Collection is comprised of a sofa, a lounge chair, a media case, a side table and a coffee table. Aiming to fit in a context that feels simple and modern, the opportunity to influence a wide variety of environments seems achievable. The collections name, Hartford, comes from the town of the little-known Hartford, Maine. While Cumberland was named after the town that designer Adam Rogers calls home, the follow up collection takes its name from the hometown of Adam's partner in design and prototyping, Warren Shaw.

A few words from the designer...

At Thos. Moser, I consider the design process an exercise in assigning form to a philosophy or an established set of ideals. The furniture then is grounded by those ideals while satisfying the imperatives of function, comfort and delight.

My challenge is to create objects that are respectful of wood as a precious resource, communicative of our capabilities in craft through thoughtful detailing, and whose existence is evidence of our talented craftsmen’s unwavering commitment to quality.

With Hartford, my intention was to continue evolving the Moser aesthetic while remaining faithful to the ideals that Tom Moser himself established in the beginning.

As a follow up to my last collection, Cumberland, the town where I live, Hartford takes its name from the town of Warren Shaw. Warren is my partner in the prototyping of new products and a man without whom these ideas would remain just that.
