Spring Comes A-greening!

  
  
  
JAN10 AC C9 detail LRrgb resized 600There’s no end of chatter about environmental friendliness and touting one's accomplishments thereto; it’s one of those subjects that garners fervent responses from some and the occasional eye-roll from others. We’re in the "impassioned responders" camp and there are several essential guidelines we use to keep an eye on true sustainability at Thos. Moser.

The nearly 70 men and women in our workshop craft their functional art primarily from American black cherry, a sustainable bequest from the Allegheny Plateau of Pennsylvania. Realistically, these cherry trees must be given 75 to 125 years to mature to furniture grade. Good stewardship is exemplified by harvesting in accordance with a long-term management plan; black cherry is a renewable resource but it is vital that the objects we craft from this wood endure at least as long as it took the tree to grow. Our furniture often becomes a family legacy as grandmothers and grandfathers, mothers and fathers, or aunts and uncles pass the special pieces they’ve curated down to their grandchildren, children, and nieces and nephews: a new generation that appreciates the fine craftsmanship which makes our furniture a lasting heritage.

Did you know we proudly guarantee our furniture for the lifetime of the original owner? It’s true! We like to think of it as putting our commitment where our dovetails are, just as surely as the seasons cycle through the year. If you're planning something earth-friendly as we celebrate the Vernal Equinox this Sunday, we’d like to know about it: Leave us a comment below and let us know what you are planning so we can celebrate your dedication, too!

Speaking of green: Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!
