Thos. Moser Cabinetmakers

Your rich aunt left her classic dining room set to your bratty sister? Who cares?! You can build your own inheritance-worthy collection at Thos. Moser, the Maine-based furnituremaker where all the pieces are handcrafted from solid hardwood, the way they have been since before you were born. Choose from iconic Yankee silhouettes or spare, contemporary classics-in-the-making that combine Japanese, German Bauhaus, and American Shaker influences. Whatever you pick, everyone will know that at least you were bequeathed good taste.
