resting elegance...introducing the

ellipse bedroom collection

Glenn D., thos. moser cabinetmaker for 23 years.

Our Ellipse collection, like all collections we’ve developed over the years, was designed to achieve lasting permanence in both its construction and its aesthetic relevance. The inspiration for Ellipse is found in the simple, functional elegance of mid-century modern design. This movement evolved during the years following World War II, when Europeans were eager to rebuild their homes and resume their lives. As then, today’s consumers have become more discerning. With this new collection, we’ve created furniture that economically demonstrates superior durability and restraint in the use of raw materials. Ellipse represents a simpler interpretation of the Moser tradition. The bed’s head and footboard are carefully crafted for maximum strength. The dressers and side tables demonstrate the elegance of fine joinery. The gentle ellipse form is evident throughout the collection in subtly tapered table legs and integrated curved drawer pulls. The Ellipse Bedroom collection is a study in elegant simplicity, and our standards remain unchanged. When you choose Moser, you’ve earned our commitment. And we’ll stand by it for a lifetime. On the cover: Brenda S., Thos. Moser cabinetmaker for the past 24 years. 02

ellipse BeDroom From its unadorned, graceful headboard to the structural simplicity of its footboard, the beauty of the Ellipse Bed lies not in what it is—but what it isn’t. It isn’t unnecessarily ornate. It isn’t ostentatious. It is a study in the relevance of wood, of fine craftsmanship, and of joinery techniques that have served craftsmen for centuries.

“We started collecting our pieces when we married. Rather than buying each other “stuff” for birthdays or christmas, we decided that it would be much more fun and meaningful to buy a new Moser piece that we could share together. So, we have a nice little collection going that we plan on keeping in the family.” — Ann R. & Mike C., Ardmore, PA

ellipse liVinG collection The hallmarks of simplicity, superior durability and careful restraint in the use of raw materials are evident in the details of our Ellipse line. Arms float on carefully joined through-tenons. End grains are exposed and polished. Profiles are clean and spaceefficient. Throughout the line, the gentle, organic curve of the ellipse is evident in the tabletops, seat backs, and gently sweeping chair arms. Built in cherry or walnut, the design and construction of the Ellipse Living collection will serve for generations. lounge chair (left and above) $2,475 | ottoman $675 | two place sofa $3,950 three place sofa (left) $5,700 | end table (left) $750 60" coffee table (left) $1,000 | 48" coffee table (above) $900 Also shown: ellipse Dining table (left) $2,800 | ellipse Dining arm chair (left) $1,050 ellipse Dining side chair (left) $850 | ellipse sideboard w/doors (left) $5,000

years of

handcrafted american furniture forty years have passed and our commitment to the craft remains.

Tom circa 1977 in our original workshop at the old Grange Hall in New Gloucester, ME. “It is significant to me that we are celebrating this milestone anniversary,” says founder Tom Moser. “We started the business as a labor of love and as we grew knew that we were making a difference. We have come a long way since those lean early years, and for that we are grateful to our loyal customers and to the all the men and women who have been part of our shop family.” Throughout the evolution of the company and its wide variety of product introductions, the Moser aesthetic has remained a constant: “It is through simplicity of form and attention to detail and proportion that we achieve a well-designed piece, and a piece from which nothing can be taken and to which nothing can be added. Forty years have passed and our commitment to the craft and to our customers remains the same.” Visit us online at thosmoser.com and on our social networks (Facebook, Twitter and YouTube) throughout the year as we roll out events in celebration of our 40th anniversary. 22

“My husband and I bought our first piece of Moser furniture in 1981. Our children are now building their own collections of Moser furniture and occasionally persuade us to give them one of our pieces. We all like the ease with which the furniture has fit into our homes and blended with our decors. We cherish our Moser pieces because they are timeless and so easy to care for.” — Chantal & Michael J., Alexandria, VA

winG liVinG collection As designer david Moser is fond of saying, “every furniture design informs those that follow.” The Wing collection is a prime example that highlights this across centuries. Its lineage can be traced back to the 18th century’s iconic Queen Anne chair, whose sophisticated silhouette made it the most prized seat in an English sitting room. Our Wing chair brings fresh relevance to an old form. cradling the spine, thick cushions envelop the sitter, while carved and polished solid cherry armrests gently support at just the right height. Each piece is designed to be viewed from all angles, whether arranged to stand in the middle of a room or flush against the wall. Alone or grouped, the Wing pieces make a graceful contribution to both modern and traditional settings, and can be upholstered in leather as well as fabric.

The customer in residence program is a week-long intensive internship for our customers who want to experience the process and satisfaction of building Moser furniture for themselves. Each participant works side-by-side with a master cabinetmaker in our shop, who will assist in the selection of raw materials and the crafting of a hallmark Moser piece. Learn about the intricacies of joinery, the shaping and molding of solid cherry and even how to bring out the natural luster of wood with the right amount of wax and elbow grease. Share your workshop experiences on a daily basis and enjoy two special group dinners with fellow attendees. In short, our program is designed to provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for woodworkers of all abilities to polish their craft. Participants stay at the historic Harraseeket Inn in Freeport with ample free time to explore Freeport and surrounding areas. Each customer in residence session ends with a special ceremony during which participants and their Thos. Moser partner sign the piece they have built. Stay tuned as we gear up to launch our new customer in residence Weekend Workshops this fall in celebration of our 40th anniversary.

Thos. Moser furniture is principally built from premium-grade American black cherry. Sustainably harvested by family-owned mills in the Allegheny forest of Pennsylvania, our cherry is distinguished by its rich grain figures and a lustrous surface patina that deepens in color over time. While we avoid exotic wood species due to environmental concerns, we also work with responsibly harvested ash, maple and walnut. When polished and oiled,

walnut assumes a deep chocolate brown color, then lightens over the years to a honey brown. Maple, on the other hand, begins the color of pale ivory and over time darkens to an amber hue. Building furniture with these native hardwoods from sustainably managed resources is a fitting embodiment of the Shaker belief in living a principled life, encompassing sustainability, land stewardship, innovation and quality in work.
