Lorenzo (Renzo) Rutili was an influential designer that studied in the US and Europe. He was the lead designer for Johnson Furniture Company in Grand Rapids, MI for over 30 years. He later spent 3 years designing for Tomlinson in High Point, NC. He designed high-end, timeless pieces of furniture.
Rutili’s designs had a modern European bend. Many of his pieces had interesting and unusual hardware.
We have several pieces designed by Rutili. There are a series of stunning dressers and a nightstand with gorgeous coin shaped brass hardware (even the back of the cases were finished). The examples we have on hand are the types of pieces that become family heirlooms to be passed down for generations. Schedule an appointment today to stop by and see examples of Rutili’s fine work.
