Designed in collaboration between Tom and David Moser and introduced in 2000, our Chaise takes its inspiration from contemporary furniture designs created by European architects in the 1920's and 1930's. Taking our cue from the likes of Finnish architect Alvar Aalto and Swiss-born architect and designer Le Corbusier, we've replaced tubular steel with the warmth of natural cherry and precision crafted mortise-and-tenon joinery. The sinuous cherry frame supports a webbed back, upholstered in full-grain leather. A removable headrest provides additional comfort, if desired.

The two-position Chaise reclines fully without any handles or gadgets. Simply lean back and let gravity do the rest. The secret is in the geometry of the pivot, called a fulcrum, which is engineered to transfer an adultís center of gravity from slightly upright to supine in one fluid motion. Tom Moserís inspiration for this movement? The simplicity of a contemporary Italian-made aluminum lawn chair he sat in one afternoon in a friendís backyard. After many days of trial and error, he and David were finally able to make it work in wood.

PLEASE NOTE: The Chaise is available in leather upholstery only. Online orders are placed without specifying specific leather choice.
