NEW DESIGNS

New designs continue to push us along the path of exploration that Tom Moser, along with his wife Mary and their four young sons, embarked upon more than 40 years ago. In 2013, Adam Rogers was named Director of Design and Product Development. With a well-honed appreciation for a wide range design genres, and through collaboration with other talented designers and craftsmen, Adam brings his own approach to product design while maintaining a devotion to Thos. Moser philosophies of clean simple lines, discreet integration of functional components, utilization of traditional joinery techniques, and bringing out the essence of solid American hardwood.

1. CUMBERLAND DINING CHAIR

The Cumberland Dining Table has been named "Best of Year" for 2014 by Interior Design magazine. Click Here for details.

This latest addition to the Moser portfolio embodies our enduring commitment to simplicity. Though inspired by Danish Modern forms, the Cumberland Dining Chair has its own perspective and is a uniquely artistic interpretation of its historical antecedents.

Check out the Cumberland Lookbook...

Perhaps not apparent at first glance are the nuanced relationships of the parts that inform the overall proportion of this chair. Typical of Moser furniture, we've tried to simplify each piece, stripping it to its required elements alone. The opportunity for elevating the modest furniture forms comes through the attention to the relationship of one of these spared parts to another.

The rails that span the legs and support the saddled solid wood seat employ an innovative double-housed mortise and tenon joint - allowing us to achieve the desired simplicity without compromising strength.

Atop the turned tapered legs sits the continuous arm and crest rail. This element is the sum of three pieces, a single solid wood steam bending at the back, joined with the collections hallmark visible finger joint to the arms.

Due to the well considered geometry of the seat and the relationship to the continuous arm + crest rail, the saddled solid wood seat provides comfort without relying on the use of an upholstered foam seat. We've enabled ourselves to decrease the thickness of the seat which creates a visual lightness which furthers the simplicity that is characteristic of this collection. Like any Moser furniture, this piece is guaranteed for life. We are confident that our innovative joinery has only raised the bar for Moser quality.

2. CUMBERLAND DINING TABLE

The Cumberland Dining Table has been named "Best of Year" for 2014 by Interior Design magazine. Click Here for details.

This latest addition to the Moser portfolio embodies our enduring commitment to simplicity. Though inspired by Danish Modern forms, the Cumberland Dining Table has its own perspective and is a uniquely artistic interpretation of its historical antecedents.

Check out the Cumberland Lookbook...

Perhaps the most bold example of the finger joint in the Cumberland Collection, the table's skirts come together at the corners with this visible traditional joint. The end grain creates a contrast in tones visible from alternating sides. The skirt's corner joint is then shaped to sympathetically accept the top of the turned tapered leg, with the width of the fingers aligning with the diameter of the top of the leg. A healthy chamfer is introduced at the top of the leg to allow the joint some breathing room and draw its due visual attention.

The table is designed to comfortably accommodate six (6) guests, three (3) on each side. This spacing is based on a
standard place setting and is applicable when pairing with Cumberland Dining Chairs.

3. CUMBERLAND SIDEBOARD

The Cumberland Dining Table has been named "Best of Year" for 2014 by Interior Design magazine. Click Here for details.

This latest addition to the Moser portfolio embodies our enduring commitment to simplicity. Though inspired by Danish Modern forms, the Cumberland Sideboard has its own perspective and is a uniquely artistic interpretation of its historical antecedents.

Check out the Cumberland Lookbook...

Similar to the Cumberland Dining Table's exposed finger joinery, the ends of the Cumberland Sideboard's aprons come together at the corners with this visible traditional joint. The end grain creates a contrast in tones visible from alternating sides. The apron's corner joint is then shaped to sympathetically accept the top of the turned tapered leg, with the width of the fingers aligning with the diameter of the top of the leg. A healthy chamfer is introduced at the top of the leg to allow the joint some breathing room and draw its due visual attention.

The drawer pulls are yet another example of Thos. Moser's committment to handcrafted products. Saddle leather is folded, adhered and hand-stitched to create a unique piece of hardware which is then fastened to the drawer front with three brass screws.

The Cumberland Sideboard is dimensioned to sit visually above the dining surface of an adjacent dining table, establishing its own presence in a dining context. Four (4) solid wood fronted drawers provide ample storage - regardless of particular needs. As is true for all Thos. Moser drawer boxes, these are made from solid White Ash with our standard dovetail construction.

4. CUMBERLAND STOOL

The Cumberland Dining Table has been named "Best of Year" for 2014 by Interior Design magazine. Click Here for details.

This latest addition to the Moser portfolio embodies our enduring commitment to simplicity. Though inspired by Danish Modern forms, the Cumberland Stool has its own perspective and is a uniquely artistic interpretation of its historical antecedents.

Check out the Cumberland Lookbook...

The Cumberland Stool represents the only stool in the Thos. Moser lineup with only three legs. Designed to be versatile in its application; whether as a seat for a meal or a perch for a guitar session, the stool can be sat in from any of the sides - it is up to the user to decide.

The seat itself is simply the sum of three equal parts. Each of the three seat segments is machined to be exactly as the next, from a single board to ensure a color match. The three like pieces are then joined with solid wood splines. This joinery serves both a structural and aesthetic function. The exposed joinery approximates the finger joints in the other pieces of the Cumberland collection, establishing its visual cohesion.

The legs of the stools are turned from White Ash and joined with an exposed wedged tenon at the top of the seat.

About Stool Heights
We offer three standard stool seat heights: 25" stools for standard 36" high counters; 27" stools for taller counters; and 31" stools for a 42" bar height. If you require a custom height or are unsure, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

5. FAHMIDA CHAIR
The Fahmida Chair celebrates contemporary design, the natural beauty of wood, and traditional joinery techniques that are a hallmark of all Thos. Moser furniture. It is the product of the first Emerging Designer Program by Thos. Moser, in collaboration with Dwell magazine and City Modern New York.

>> CLICK HERE to read about the Fahmida Chair on the Architectural Digest blog <<


>> GearPatrol.com has named the Fahmida Chair as one of the "Greatest 100 Products On Earth" in the 2014 GP100 <<


Fahmida Lam, a residential furniture and accessories designer from Brooklyn who graduated from Pratt Institute, was selected to take part in a week-long experiential apprenticeship with Thos. Moser Director of Design, Adam Rogers. The result was the prototype for chair you see here, which we have named Fahmida in reference to the designer and will launch to the public at Dwell on Design 2014.


The design of the Fahmida Chair is influenced by the Mid-Century Modern style, specifically, Danish Modern. Although admittedly inspired by the furniture born of the style, this piece - like any Thos. Moser piece or collection - has its own perspective and is a unique interpretation of its historical antecedents, through the lens of designer Fahmida Lam. Leveraging the strength and beauty of hand-finished American hardwoods such as cherry and walnut, the chair cuts a fresh, airy profile that naturally complements any thoughtful and clean aesthetic.

Best of Year FinalistJust as the Shaker style served as an appropriate creative spark in classic Thos. Moser pieces, the Danish Modern aesthetic acts here as a vehicle, identified and chosen because of its compatible philosophies, such as; a foremost dedication to quality, a dedication to functionally driven objects, formal simplicity, the characteristic elimination of ornament, use and celebration of traditional materials, and an emphasis on craftsmanship. These characteristics are not only compatible, but exemplary of what the Thos. Moser brand has come to stand for, and this piece is yet another iteration of Thos. Moser quality.

"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"
  - Adam Rogers, Thos. Moser director of design

Fahmida LamABOUT THE DESIGNER
In 2013, Pratt graduate and Brooklyn native, Fahmida Lam was invited to Thos. Moser to design and build a chair. Fahmida, an emerging residential furniture and accessories designer whose portfolio also includes lighting, home accessories and soft goods, worked closely with Adam Rogers, Director of Design and Product Development, and master craftsman Warren Shaw, to leverage the techniques, material and joinery of Moser to guide and express her design. The collaboration resulted in the decision to launch and include the Fahmida Chair in our product offerings for summer 2014.
