Among our most thoroughly explored assortments of handmade American furniture, our Edo Collection makes a clear nod to the East, envisioning fresh perspectives on primitive forms. The collection is both modern and ageless, bringing the outside in to tell a compelling story of the interplay of nature and craft.
Like all the work we do at Thos. Moser, the Edo collection seeks to prove a simple, organic and undeniable truth: when form and function align, they appeal at an instinctive level. Inspired by the concept of wabi-sabi – originating during Japan’s Edo period – and by Scandinavian and Shaker designs, the work of George Nakashima, and by our own American Bungalow Collection, the Edo Collection aims high.
Lofty goals require complicated work – and our master craftspeople make it look effortless. The results reflect the drama of natural shapes, capturing motion with unexpected angles, solid surfaces, and thoughtful massing that demonstrates substance – tapering gently as it climbs.
Whether selected as a collection or as an accent, the Edo Collection makes a dramatic statement that tells a captivating story of design evolution, inspired craftsmanship and purpose.
