"My debt is to the craftsmen who make our furniture, they are Thos. Moser. Not me, them." - Tom Moser

The people behind the scenes at Thos. Moser are what makes us tick. Here is but a small sampling of the cabinetmakers and others who work throughout the shop.

Growing up in Chicago, Tom Moser learned to work with his hands from his father, a stereotyper for the Chicago Tribune. Tom's parents died when he was young, and at age 15 he dropped out of Northbrook High School to join the Air Force during the Korean War. While in high school, Tom met Mary Wilson, whom he married in 1957. Read More

"My grandfather, Joseph Moser, handmade a bookcase as a gift for his sister, Annie, in the 1920s. The design, which my dad, Tom, describes as an arts and crafts piece, then became his inspiration for the Windward Bookcase. With its smaller size and lightweight size, the piece is one of my favorites and is sure to become the favorite of an avid reader or someone who proudly displays memorabilia. While I have a Windward Bookcase in my home adorned with family photos, I hope to someday pass along the story and family history that comes with my grandfather's original." Read More

Adam was close to - and learned how to create from - his grandfather, who ran the prototype shop for Pontiac Motors. His approach to problem solving ultimately served as the foundation for Adam's design philosophy. Read More

The Continuous Arm Rocker is one of the first pieces Bob made at Thos. Moser when he arrived in 1987. "There is a lot of craftsmanship in the chair you don't see," he says. "From the pommel of the seat to the design each layer of the tree makes and circular patterns it creates giving it a distinct look. And the contrast of the cherry seat with the ash wedges and spindles is really eye appealing - you just can't help but touch it." Read More
