The Island Stool is a contemporary nod to the past, drawing inspiration from an old Shaker utility stool found in Tom and Mary Moser’s first home in Maine, a 200-year-old farmhouse in New Gloucester.
There is an intertwining of cool blues and warm wooden tones throughout the house, a nod to the ocean and Maine woods. Large windows allow the landscape to filter inward to create a welcoming oasis that allows them to take a deep breath and watch the worries of the world drift away.
With its straight grain and exceptional strength, ash has long been a staple in the legs of chairs, rockers, and benches throughout our collections. Balancing its strength, ash is also remarkably resilient– providing just the right “give” to make a spindle Thos. Moser chairback every bit as comfortable as it is beautiful.
