CELEBRATE THE KINDRED SPIRITS OF THOS. MOSER AND MAINE ARTIST BERNARD LANGLAIS THROUGH MARCH IN ALL OUR SHOWROOMS

February 1st, 2009
Tom Moser & Bernard Langlais
”We are kindred spirits, he and I, through our love of wood, our love of fashioning it with our hands, our love of the human spirit made real, and our love of Maine. We find meaning in three dimensional creation, his to be seen and enjoyed,
mine to serve and be useful.”

- Tom Moser, speaking about the late Maine artist Bernard Langlais

On the pages of our January 2009 Catalog, you will see the remarkable synergy we experienced at the Maine home and studios of artist Bernard Langlais (1923-1977) while photographing our furniture there. Although it is quiet at the Langlais estate, the vibrant presence of this prolific artist is still evident in the monumental, playful works in and around his home.

Kindred Spirits – A Nationwide Exhibit
Special exhibits of original Langlais pieces available for purchase are on view in all showrooms through March. A portion of each art sale will go to the Langlais Foundation, dedicated to preserving the artist's work in situ. To learn more, use the links below or visit any of our showrooms from coast-to-coast.
