Rutt HandCrafted Cabinetry Introduces a Newly Tailored Morgan Design Series

Published On March 22, 2017 |

As the world becomes more complex, the Arts & Crafts movement is celebrating a rebirth that honors utilitarian forms, honest craftsmanship and dedication to details

New Holland, PA – March 16, 2017 – The Morgan Series, originally designed by Scott Stultz in 1996, captures the simplicity and honesty of the Arts & Crafts movement. Although displaced for a time by modernism, the Arts and Crafts influence has only increased, and exceptional pieces continue to be in high demand, seen in private homes and museum collections. Newly retailored by Rutt HandCrafted Cabinetry, this Morgan Series captures the current revaluation of handcraft and craving for beautiful, fine workmanship. This refreshed reintroduction offers a cleaner, more delicate balance in each of the Series’ components. Rails and stiles are more slender, the full overlay door configuration has been restyled to infer a traditionally tailored inset door and the uncomplicated five-piece drawer/door combination offers an updated take on a classic Mission style.

“Our Morgan Series has been extremely popular with our designers because it pairs beautifully with a variety of cabinet styles,” explained Jason Artus, vice president of marketing for Rutt HandCrafted Cabinetry. “With the redesign, there is even more versatility. When Scott was doing the redesign, one of the elements that was extremely important to us was for the cabinetry to have lighter proportions, allowing it to not feel overwhelming in small spaces, yet still provide visual richness and movement for larger spaces.”

In addition to the retailored cabinetry, Rutt is introducing an exclusive new color palate, custom accessories, and new custom base cabinetry to accommodate wide kitchen sinks up to 84-inches.

Among the featured products include:

  • Docking Drawer
  • Grey Non-Slip Mat
  • Custom Exeter Decorative Hardware
  • White Oak Drawers and Accessories

“When designing the retailored Morgan Series, I followed a strategy of horizontal and vertical framing members that are offset from one another in a layered progression. This creates a pattern similar to Woven fabric, but at a larger scale,” said Scott Stultz, product developer for Rutt. “The visual logic of the system is clear and intuitive, with planar transitions softened by slightly rounded long edges. The profiles are elegantly simple, and the effect is one of honed proportional balance. The shadows that define the offsets give Morgan a strong yet subtle three dimensional façade.”

Following a mission to develop tailored American Cabinetry that is distinguished by detail, Rutt has taken a leadership position, insuring designers and homeowners can enjoy a solution designed to perform from the outset.

Inspired by the shallow curves and creeks of rolling upstate NY and New England hills and creeks, the Morgan Retailored” Series would be perfectly at home in a reimagined New England Farmhouse or an Urban Townhouse – one that marries an 18th century façade with a 21st century addition and interior. Morgan retailored is the perfect blend of nature and craft.
