The most successful model units blend a combination of affordable and distinctive elements guaranteed to wow prospective renters so that signing the lease is an inevitable outcome.

These days every model unit (and leasing office) has a trendy office chair. But have you noticed that most of them look very much alike?

An effective way to stand out from the other apartment communities in the area is by including an office chair with personality and one that has an interesting story.

In today’s smaller units the boundaries are blurring between furniture and art. The Cooper Chair, manufactured by American furniture brand Thos. Moser, is as beautiful as it is functional. Designed by award-winning industrial designer, Brian Kane of Kane Design in San Francisco, the Cooper chair boasts high-grade leather cushions supported by an ergonomic solid wood shell.

Cooper is available in both high back and low back, with or without arms and a five star base with castors or stationary feet. Each shell is handmade by a skilled craftsman at the Thos. Moser workshop in Maine.

The chair’s shell is the sum of individual steam-bent and shaped solid wood members coopered and joined to become a single form. This unique process employs both high-tech computerized machining and time-tested skilled handwork.

Cooper is made with solid American Hardwoods that are all sustainably harvested from North American forests utilizing the industry’s strictest practices.
