It’s Exactly what the designer ordered!! Lorenzo (Renzo) Rutili was born in 1901 in Donora, Pennsylvania. He was a designer for Johnson Furniture for over 30 years and then Tomlinson of High Point, North Carolina for three years following his time with Johnson. He studied at Carnegie Institute, and he also studied design in Europe for several years. He was a salesman, a designer, a lecturer, and past president of Grand Rapids Furniture Designers Association in 1940. Mr. Rutili passed away May 26, 1966. Johnson Furniture was founded in 1903 by three brothers who emigrated from Sweden in 1887: Carl, Hjalmar, and Axel. Carl had received a medal from the King of Sweden for his cabinetmaking. They hired Tom Handley as the in-house designer in 1908 and also became an officer for them in 1922 and was with the company until his death in 1926. He established Johnson – Handley – Johnson as a companion company and both entities as major producers of high quality, period revival, residential furniture. Johnson produced wood residential furniture for the bedroom, while the Johnson- Handley- Johnson label was used for dining suites, occasional tables, and case pieces. Designer David Robinson led Johnson into the production of Art Deco and Modern lines in 1928. The company claimed that they were the first to produce a complete line of Modern furniture in the United States. Lorenzo (Renzo) Rutili served as head of design from 1933 into the 60s. He personally designed groups in Modern and Neoclassical repertoires and oversaw contracted design lines by famous designers including D. Robertson Smith, Paul Frankl, Eliel Saarinen, and J. Robert F. and Pipsam Swanson. In 1963 the last family member Earl Johnson retired, and the company merged with Timber-Line Inc, while still retaining the Johnson name. In 1968 until 1975 the company was owned by Holiday Inns, Inc. and in 1983 it sold to Rose Manufacturing.
