Poetry in Wood

Meet furniture designer Tom Moser in Georgetown

Poetry in Wood Tom Moser, the founder of Thos. Moser, Handmade American Furniture, will sign copies of his fifth book, Legacy in Wood (Down East Books, Lanham, Maryland; 2015), at the company’s Georgetown showroom on April 23 from 1 to 4 p.m.

Moser will also unveil his newest creation, the Auburn Chair, inspired by a simple cafeteria chair he spotted on a ferry from Maine to Nova Scotia. The Auburn—available in walnut or cherry and as a chair or stool—features a curved back that supports the lumbar in two directions. “It’s my most comfortable solid-wood chair yet,” says the designer. 1028 33rd Street, NW;
