A recent offer to Moser’s William McGonagle (CEO as he’s sure to add) from a West Coast maker of Fine American Furniture (I believe them to be the very best in the USA) was met with derision and superciliousness. The idea was a proposal for the establishment of a venue for the display of American designed and manufactured craftsmanship in Washington DC and the offer was to include Thos (sic) Moser’s name in the proposal abstract. I would not do so without their permission. It was a courtesy and an opportunity.
I, frankly, find Moser’s furniture designs amateurish, and some are outright plagiarism of other folk’s work/designs. Those that purchase it will find them flawed. I once owned the Moser Lolling Chair and ottoman and found the finish less than durable (not that anyone sat in it) and the leather of poor quality. I donated it to the St. Vincent DePaul Society.
A company’s culture starts at the top. That said, I’d avoid Moser.
