Thos. Moser Returns

The company’s artisanal furniture is back in a Cady’s Alley showroom

After a three-year absence, handcrafted-furniture manufacturer Thos. Moser opened its doors once again in Georgetown on January 4. While the 43-year-old, family-owned company is based in Maine, it does a booming online business nationwide, according to chief brand officer Susan Davis. The return to DC was driven by popular demand. “We were hearing from customers,” says Davis. “People wanted to touch and feel the beauty of the wood.”

The 5,000-square-foot showroom at 33rd and M Streets carries all the iconic furniture designs conceived by founder Tom Moser and his sons, as well as newer modern pieces. The earlier pieces are mainly cherry, but staff designers such as Adam Rogers have introduced walnut, maple, ash and more. Each piece is created and signed by one artisan. “We’re about craft,” says Davis. The common denominator “is simplicity, joinery and beautiful wood.”

The new DC space also marks a fresh look for Thos. Moser showrooms. Present-day and vintage imagery about the company adorns the walls, creating a narrative about its history and operations. The plan is for other showrooms to follow suit over time. 1028 33rd Street, NW. 202-793-2606; thosmoser.com
