Eastward Arm Chair


When we design and build furniture at Thos. Moser, we subscribe to the philosophy that there should be no function without beauty – and no beauty without function. In every way, the Eastward Arm Chair satisfies this standard, finding an abundance of beauty in purposeful utility. Crafted with carefully sprung spindles and sculpted seats, our Eastward Chairs recall the Shaker tradition, with thoughtful updates that eliminate the need for spreaders and reduce overall mass.

In the Eastward Arm Chair, the sum of four legs, two arms, a seat and a back come together in a unity of strength, stability, grace, comfort – and 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 – an effort that requires a steady hand an understanding of wood and undivided attention to detail. The chair’s arms seem to float, suspended atop spindles and supported with through-spindles at the back for firm, reliable support.

The springiness and careful placement of the ash spindles provide subtle flexibility, making this chair one of the most comfortable we’ve ever made. Contrasting dark and light in walnut and ash or cherry and ash, the Eastward Arm Chair’s confident simplicity stands firmly in that perfect balance between design and craftsmanship and is a quiet companion to any dining table – in any dining space. A natural complement to the sibling Eastward Side Chair, these seats combine both grace and purpose, ensuring their heirloom quality.
