CUMBERLAND DINING TABLE NAMED "BEST OF YEAR" BY INTERIOR DESIGN MAGAZINE AT THE 2014 BEST OF YEAR AWARDS IN NEW YORK CITY

December 5th, 2014
At an awards ceremony held in New York City, the Cumberland Dining Table was presented with Interior Design magazine's Best of Year award in the residential dining tables category.


The Cumberland Table is announced as Best of Year winner on Dec. 4, 2014 in New York

Best of Year WinnerDesigned by Adam Rogers, the Danish-inspired Cumberland Collection features Adam's uniquely artistic interpretation of its historical antecedents. The skirts of the Cumberland Table come together via a finger joint to create a contrast in tones, emphasizing the collectionsí hallmark detail. The corner joint is then shaped to sympathetically accept a turned tapered leg, with the fingers aligning with the top of the leg. The tableís top is subtly bowed at the top and ends, drawing visual attention.


Cumberland CollectionThe Collection also includes the Cumberland Dining Chair featuring a crest rail which is joined to the arms with an exposed finger joint. The chairís rails span the legs and support the saddled seat to employ an innovative double-housed mortise and tenon joint. Other items in the Cumberland Collection include a sideboard, which emphasizes the visual interest of the exposed finger joinery with the ends of the sideboardís four drawer aprons coming together at the corners with the same traditional finger joinery; and a three-legged stool featuring three seat segments, also joined using the collection's hallmark finger joint.



Best of Year HonoreeThe Fahmida Chair (left), designed exclusively for Thos. Moser by Brooklyn-based designer Fahmida Lam, was also recognized as an honoree in last night's awards presentation.

"When we introduced the emerging designers program, my goal was to heighten respect for the craft of wood furniture; how it necessarily requires an understanding of and respect for the natural material, while allowing the craft itself to serve as a counterpart in the design process. The Fahmida Chair is a direct manifestation of that goal."
