I stopped by the “Kindred Spirits” event at the Thos. Moser showroom on Thursday night—it was nice to see a solid turnout on such a torrential evening, and the snacks and spirits were tasty. Andres Verzosa, a Maine gallerist and curator, was on hand to give a talk and slideshow on the work of the late artist Bernard Langlais, whose found-wood assemblages (think Louise Nevelson, only more rustic) and paintings are featured at Moser this month. The party was hosted by designer David Moser (son of the company’s founders, Tom and Mary), who also presented his new Kinesis chair and ottoman, pictured above. It comes in cherry or walnut, and swivels on a cast-bronze base that was inspired by the human hand—lighter patina between the stretched out “fingers.” I tested it out, and the sleek, organic design is a winner. So comfortable and enveloping, and the finish is beyond smooth. You can really see and feel the love that goes into all of the custom woodwork at this bi-level boutique, which is offering free delivery for all orders placed through March, and also discounting floor samples and a number of their most popular designs.
