Tom Moser, the furniture designer and founder of Thos. Moser Handmade American Furniture, will be at his Georgetown showroom April 23 from 1 to 4 p.m. to sign his latest book “Legacy in Wood” and to present his most recently designed wood chair.

The book offers Moser’s thoughts on his decades-long career as a craftsman and on creativity, inspiration and his design aesthetic.

The new Auburn chair, named for the Maine location of the Thos. Moser workshop, was inspired by a cafeteria chair made of steel and plastic that Tom Moser and his wife Mary saw on a ferry from Maine to Nova Scotia. The curved back of the chair, called an “anticlastic curve” supports the lumbar in two directions.

Visitors to the Georgetown showroom at 1028 33rd St. NW during Moser’s appearance will receive a complimentary book and can enter to win an Auburn chair. For more information, call 202-793-2606 or visit
