2. LOLLING CHAIR & OTTOMAN


To loll: to lounge, to lie back, to surrender. Skillfully shaped to emulate the curvature of the human form, and cushioned in silky-soft tufted leather, the aptly-named Lolling Chair is designed for pure relaxation. True to its purpose, this delightful design shifts effortlessly between upright and reclined in five distinct angles. Whether admiring a treasured work of art or a heavenly vista, or if enjoyed only for a moment’s quiet reflection, the Lolling Chair is built equally for comfort and contemplation.

The design of the Lolling Chair references the ubiquitous form of a post-WWII porch chair built by the Heywood Wakefield company from Massachusetts. Wakefield’s chair was made of yellow birch and stained a honey maple, with all rounded corners and awning-like canvas cushions, and in its day could be found on countless porches and sunrooms. Our Lolling Chair serves the eye and the body at rest in the living room, in the den, at home, or in the office.

The five-position back transforms the angle from upright to reclined using an adjustable brass rod. The removable headrest is also adjustable. Curved armrests with our hand-rubbed finish provide tactile richness.

A CABINETMAKER'S PERSPECTIVE
The Lolling Chair has been a long time favorite of our customers and one of our best sellers for many years. Cabinetmaker Bob Cabral (holding a freshly-cut Lolling Chair arm) joined our team in 2003. Bob's furniture making talents are wide-ranging, but the Lolling Chair remains one of his favorite pieces to build and he has built a countless number of them for customers all over the world (if you already have yours, take a peek underneath and you just might find his signature).

In the following video clip, Bob is working on assembling the arms of a Lolling Chair and wedging the arms and legs to the base. He will eventually trim off the exposed top of the wedges and sand them so smooth that a rub of the hand will not distinguish between the wedged-tenon joint that holds the arm in place and the surface of the arm itself...

5. SEQUEL CHAIR


NEW IN SHOWROOMS - SPRING 2016

The Sequel Chair is David Moser's interpretation of Tom Moser's icon, the Continuous Arm Chair.

A number of years ago, a long time admirer of Thos. Moser and fan of Tom’s Continuous Arm Chair (TMC), asked of son David Moser the following question: “As an accomplished designer and maker in your own right at Thos. Moser, one with a more contemporary aesthetic yet iterative sensibility, what would your take on Tom’s TMC look like? After all, if the TMC is interprets a classical Windsor, what could its Sequel be in the hands of a next generation Moser?”

As the only American makers showing at the Scandinavian Furniture Fair in the mid-1980s, Tom and Mary witnessed something they already knew to be true: that the best design is often incremental, building over time on work from the past. Years later, David himself confirmed, “Though we are innovators, the Moser aesthetic is iterative and almost always evolutionary, owing deference to antecedent form.” That iteration then was the challenge, and Sequel is the result.

Appropriate for a variety of environments, the Sequel Chair is as much a guest/accent chair as a dining chair.

The Sequel Chair can be crafted from most solid American hardwoods, although the complexity of the bendings may be limiting. Please inquire for requests other than walnut or cherry.

7. CHAISE


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 adult’s center of gravity from slightly upright to supine in one fluid motion. Tom Moser’s inspiration for this movement? The simplicity of a contemporary Italian-made aluminum lawn chair he sat in one afternoon in a friend’s 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 only (no fabric). Online orders are placed without specifying specific leather choice. Due to the wide range of options available, we will contact you to verify your preferences and help make your selection after you complete your online order. If you prefer to discuss leather options before placing your order, simply visit your nearest showroom or just give us a call.

8. EASTWARD CHAIR


No function without beauty. Difficult to demand of a ‘best supporting’ piece that is as functional as a dining chair. Our Eastward chair easily challenges such an exacting standard. Four legs, a seat, a back; the sum of the parts come together in strength, stability, grace, comfort and yes, great beauty, in one timeless form. Shaping the crisp, straight lines of the Eastward seats requires a deft and steady hand. Each wedged chair leg must be delicately sanded smooth without grinding away too much of the seat and sending the piece to its demise. As for comfort, the flexibility and careful placement of the spindles is what makes of this chair one of the most comfortable Moser has ever made. Contrasting dark and light, in walnut and ash or cherry and ash, the Eastward dining chair in its confident simplicity stands firmly in that perfect balance between design and craftsmanship and is equal to any dining table.

11. VITA BED
Taking good design down to the bones, the Vita Bed’s simplicity and curved headboard harken back to the Modernist era and the sleeping platforms common in Japan. Despite its delicate appearance, this bed’s loftiness defies its substantial mass. The curved, laminated feet—a Vita hallmark—suspend the mattress snugly in a remarkably strong solid cherry base.

Contemporary lines. Warm wood grains. Designed by Tom Moser in his home workshop in Harpswell, Maine, the Harpswell dining chairs are naturally beautiful in the truest sense, adding elegance to any room.

Well-padded backrests and seats can be upholstered in mohair or a wide variety of fabric coverings. We can also apply material supplied by you.

13. THOS. MOSER CONTINUOUS ARM CHAIR



To form the arms eleven knife-cut slices of the same board just one-tenth of an inch thick, called flitch, are laminated together. Then each continuous arm is painstakingly rasped, filed and sanded to a perfect smoothness. Learn more about this iconic design below...

The Origin
The continuous arm chair is a Windsor chair, a design that originated in England in the 1700s for use as garden furniture. Some people think the name Windsor came from the castle of the same name. One thing for certain, the original Windsor chairs were large, heavy (thus, hard to move around) but offered a good deal of comfort, which is the chief reason the style endured.

In about 1750, Rhode Island cabinetmakers came up with the idea of making the arm and the back of the chair from a single piece of hickory or ash, two types of wood that lend themselves to being steam bent and curved. While undoubtedly beautiful and comfortable, the Continuous Arm Chair took tremendous skill and patience to make, because of the need to form a compound curve with right angle bends.

In the early 1970s, Tom Moser set out to create a new generation of Continuous Arm Chair. It took him many years to perfect the design. He made the first prototypes for the back of the chair out of copper plumbing pipes, because they were easily bent and held their shape. Once he got the form just right, he created a wooden prototype and began experimenting with lamination and bending techniques. As Tom recalls, “Originally I used wedges, then I used a cams and straps to create the right pressure to form the bend. It still wasn’t right, so I employed a stainless steel strap with a couple of arms that came off a logging truck and some ratchets. Finally, I graduated to using air pressure. The whole process took years, a little piece at a time.” By the late 1970s, the Thos. Moser Continuous Arm Chair was ready to make its debut. Judging from the reception the chair received from our customers, it was well worth the effort.

How it’s Made
The continuous arm in our signature chair is created using flitch-cut cherry. The process involves quartering and steaming sections of logs, then slicing them into tenth-inch thick strips. Because the strips are cut with a knife, not a saw, no saw dust is created and the strength of the board is preserved. Hence, when you glue the pieces back together, they are just as they grew in the tree. The beauty is that while it retains the appearance of a solid wood, the continuous arm is actually comprised of eleven different layers.

It takes a tremendous amount of hand work to shape each continuous arm, because it’s shape is oval in at the top, becomes round, then U-shaped with a flat surface where it meets the arms. Each arm is trimmed, then filed by hand using a course file called a horse rasp, then a finer rasp, and finished with a hand sander. Even the holes are drilled by eye.

The Continuous Arm Chair also includes other refinements, such as a highlight (raised section) that runs around the back of the chair, where the spindles join the seat. The spindles extend all the way through the seat and are wedged top and bottom, making them not only aesthetically pleasing, but easily repaired, should the need ever arise. The spindles are so finely tuned, you can pluck them the way you would with a string on a harp and they should resonate at the same frequency.

One more well considered detail of the Continuous Arm Chair are its legs. Most Windsor chairs have stretchers that connect the legs to one another. Often times, the stretchers get creaky and tend to loosen. In addition, they are dust collectors and prevent the sitter you from crossing their legs underneath. So, Tom Moser replaced the stretchers with a curved brace called a ship’s knee. Supportive and strong, the ship’s knee is created from 1/32” laminated ash that is bent to shape, then set into a slot that is cut and shaped into the leg, so it is flush to the surface.

Over 30 years since we first introduced the Continuous Arm Chair, it is largely crafted exactly as it was by Tom Moser when he conceived and perfected the design. Our ongoing commitment to carefully crafting each chair one at a time ensures that your chair will become part of your own family’s legacy.

15. PASADENA DINING CHAIR


The Pasadena Dining Chair was named "Best of Year" in 2008 for Product Design/Residential Dining Chair by Interior Design magazine...CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS.

A modern, geometric hourglass defines the telltale shape of the Pasadena Dining Chair, continuing the action set in motion by the Dining Table.

Only one flat plane exists on each chair, where the back and the seat joint are reinforced. Otherwise, they seem more carved than assembled. Their shapely legs are faceted and splayed to provide stability without bulk. The seats are wide and as comfortable as any solid wood dining chair could be without upholstery. The slender back of the Side Chair scrolls up from this strong foundation, using the least amount of material needed to comfortably support the sitter.

The Arm Chair has a central back splat to support its broader profile, and the Side Chair is available with or without a similar back.

As a whole, the Pasadena Dining Chairs enhance the space they inhabit, without overpowering it.

16. WING CHAIR & OTTOMAN


The Wing Chair is poetry as furniture, marrying our hallmark aesthetics with true comfort. Tracing its lineage back to an 18th-century Queen Anne chair, we have sought to bring new relevance to old forms-successfully coaxing solid cherry into freestanding art. Shaped to cradle the sitter's spine, it would be comfortable in its own right, yet the addition of upholstery makes it luxurious. Carved cherry armrests gently fold over at just the right height and are polished smooth to the touch. Four-inch thick cushions are covered and welted in the fabric or leather of your choice. Your feet will nestle comfortably in the Ottoman, curved end to end to support your legs, in harmony with the chair.

PLEASE NOTE: Online orders are placed without specifying specific fabric or leather choice. Due to the wide range of options available, we will contact you to verify your preferences and help make your selection after you complete your online order. If you prefer to discuss upholstery options before placing your order, simply visit your nearest showroom or just give us a call.

17. HIGH STOOL


As seen on This Old House.

Originally designed and crafted by Tom Moser himself over 30 years ago, our High Stool was intended as a hard working piece. True to the creative spirit of Thos. Moser, however, the enduring value of our High Stool lies in its ability to humbly serve both the artist at the easel and the craftsman at the bench. Both in inspiration, both in grace. Made from American cherry on four tapered ash legs, the seat itself is reminiscent of that of a tractor or a saddle, offering the same historic simplicity and remarkable comfort.

In wood and in artisanship, our High Stool is as sculpted on the bottom as it is on top, making it singularly pleasing and inviting to its use.

About Stool Heights
We offer four stool seat heights: 25" stools for standard 36" high counters; 27" stools for taller counters; and 31" stools for a 42" bar height. We also offer our Bowback Stool and High Stool in an 18” height (standard chair seat height) appropriate for a typical 30” high desk/table. If you require a custom height or are unsure, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

18. NEWPORT CHAIR


As seen on This Old House.

The designers at Thos. Moser, as part of the continuum of great American craftsmanship, often strive to reference historic styles of design in ways that reflect modern life. Six years in the making, the Newport Chair is just such an example, harkening back to the Windsor form of some 200 years ago. Utilizing methods developed by the Amish for making wagon wheel spokes, our craftsmen employ these techniques in the Newport Chair to unite, as one, great beauty, extreme comfort, and lifelong pleasure.

The Windsor chair, the original inspiration and predecessor for the Newport Chair, can be found in the Redwood Library and Athenaeum in Newport, Rhode Island. Read the complete story below...

Two Hundred Years of History
Six years in the making by the time it was introduced in 2003, the Newport Chair is a worthy heir to its early-American design heritage. In 1764, the Redwood Library in Newport, Rhode Island purchased twelve low-backed Windsor chairs. For over 200 years these chairs endured, and were in daily use through the 1990's. Today, one of these chairs is on display in the Redwood Library and the other remaining five are housed in the library's vault. The simple yet sturdy form of these classic chairs inspired our own 21st-century edition. A refined workhorse of a chair-able to support 10-15 times its weight, it will happily endure the rigors of everyday life, growing more beautiful over time.


The Newport Chair and one of the original twelve chairs at the Redwood Library in Newport, Rhode Island after over two centuries of use.

19. NEW GLOUCESTER ROCKER
As seen on This Old House.

New Gloucester was home to our first workshop, not far from the last remaining Shaker Community at Sabbathday Lake. This homage to the spare, graceful design found there will bring a place of serenity to your home. Ideally spaced to envelope the back in comfort, the ash spindles are joined to the back crest and sculpted cherry seat with wedged tenons, fitted at precise angles to allow both adequate flex and deceptive strength.

A CABINETMAKER'S PERSPECTIVE
Click to learn more about veteran cabinetmaker Brenda SwettThe New Gloucester Rocker has been a customer favorite since Tom Moser built the first one in 1984. It continues to be one of our most popular pieces today, which gives testimony to the timelessness of the design. Brenda Swett is one of the most accomplished cabinetmakers in the shop and has always enjoyed building the New Gloucester Rocker for customers all over the world.

In the following video clip, Brenda is working on assembling the arms of a New Gloucester Rocker, and then fitting the pins that will hold the arms, seat, and top crest rail securely to the spindles. This involves fitting the arms, wedging the through tenons that hold them in place, then grinding them down to be flush with the surface of the arms. Pinning involves drilling out the holes for each of the pins, inserting them using a woodworker's glue to ensure they stay in place for decades to come, and finally sanding them to a perfect smoothness...

23. BOWBACK STOOL

Often embedded in the creation of a Thos. Moser piece are unexpected cues from everyday day life. The design and muscle of the Bowback Stool finds its inspiration in the broad seat of a tractor combined with the passenger bar found on the back of a motorcycle. Both comfortable and comforting, these high functioning sources of inspiration are exquisitely elevated in the Bowback Stool to objects of grace and beauty at the hands of our master craftsmen.

Available in a variety of heights, the Bowback Stool delicately pairs walnut and ash, cherry and ash or, more quietly, both seat and spindles in ash. And with our signature wedged tenons joining the seat to the crest and legs for superior strength, every Bowback stool is built to withstand generations of daily use and comes with our Lifetime Guarantee.

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. We also offer our Bowback Stool and High Stool in an 18” height (standard chair seat height) appropriate for a typical 30” high desk/table. If you require a custom height or are unsure, please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

24. SLEIGH BED WITH CURVED FOOTBOARD
The story of every Moser piece is underpinned by the same basic tenet: no function without beauty. As master craftsmen, we are driven equally by precision in technique and simplicity in design. We honor traditional inspiration and seek out its modern reflection. And so it is that our Sleigh Bed presents a contemporary articulation of the 18th century grace and elegance of its French origins, yet is elevated by a singular simplicity and desire for modern comfort. A rare application of a framed laminated solid hardwood panel allows the dramatic single curve of the headboard to be successfully achieved. With or without a complementary footboard, our Sleigh Bed features the reinforcement of a full bolt system through the bed into the side rail in order to reinforce and ensure its original solidity for the many years of its life.


NOTE: also available with a single wooden rail footboard.

25. GEORGETOWN DOUBLE PEDESTAL EXTENSION TABLE

Grain-matched cherry legs are individually shaped to create eight facets that uniquely capture light and shadow. Each leg is reinforced with triangular wooden pieces, or splines, that are wedged into the mitered joints. The result is a distinguished table of uncommon strength and beauty.

27. ELLIPSE BED
Like the human need for sleep, the design of our Ellipse Bed is fundamental. From the unadorned expanse of its graceful headboard to the structural simplicity of its footboard, its beauty lies not in what it is—but what it isn’t. It isn’t unnecessarily ornate. It isn’t ostentatious. It is, quite simply, a study in the beauty of wood, of fine craftsmanship, and of joinery techniques that have served craftsmen for centuries.

28. CRESCENT FOUR AND SIX DRAWER BUREAUS



The Crescent Bureaus were originally inspired by a customer who desired a curved adaptation of our standard dresser. To create the bow shaped drawers of the Crescent series we have laminated together flitches of solid cherry rather than steam bending them. Their gentle curve is echoed in the lines of the top and in the serpentine carved base.

29. VITA CHAIR & OTTOMAN

As seen on Treehouse Masters and This Old House.

The Vita Chair and Ottoman represent the evolution of our design ethos, merging the sentiments of modernism with the substance, grace, and tradition of solid cherry and leather. The Vita Collection pays tribute to master architect Mies van der Rohe, originator of the term "less is more", by harnessing the natural strength of wood to achieve suspension and cantilever with minimal form. The curved back and tufted cushions echo a familiar silhouette, while the architecture of the base and the materials are something else entirely. A solid, matched-grain cherry back and seat are joined in an ergonomically curved frame. The seat and back cushions are meticulously hand stitched to ensure a sleek, tailored surface that is resoundingly comfortable.

30. ARIA CHAIR


At first glance, the hourglass lines of the Aria Chair evoke a more glamorous age when Old World design influences met a newly minted urbane American public. Upon closer examination, you’ll see that the Aria Collection has much in common with the soft patterns etched by the sea on a sandy shore: gentle ridges and undulating crescents that tease the eye with familiarity—perfect companion pieces for any furniture with a more rectilinear form.

The shell-like back of the Aria Chair is methodically crafted with hand-carved convex and concave curves. Each grain-matched stave is carved and attached to its mate with concealed alignment pins. The arms of the armchair connect with a floating tenon that merges flush with the back and seat. Unlike stacked and laminated furniture, the entire surface is seamless to the touch. Sophisticated tapered legs offer stability and strength while custom upholstery lends additional softness and texture.

31. HARPSWELL STOOL


To create the back crest of the Harpswell Stool, we begin with a three-inch-block of cherry, called a twelve-quarter by the lumber mills. As we carve into the block, swirling grain patterns emerge. Each crest is an individual canvas - no two are alike. When the seats are lined up together the effect is stunning. We've added our skill as joiners of wood, but nature has held the paintbrush.

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.

32. AMERICAN BUNGALOW DINING CHAIR


In adapting traditional Arts and Crafts forms, we wanted to achieve a lightness not found in the furniture popularized during the period. A gradual reverse tapering of the front legs gives weight to the bottom of these chairs while terminating gracefully at the top. This slight taper is echoed in the back design, which resembles a Wright-style stained-glass window. The armchair features a visible through joint on the armrest. Mortise-and-tenon joints are glued and pinned to ensure a secure fit for generations of use.
