A History of Uncompromising Cabinetmaking

Phares Rutt opened a woodworking shop beside his Lancaster County home in 1951 and quickly became known as one of the finest makers of handcrafted wood furniture in southeastern Pennsylvania. His work embodied the classic style and quality that are unique to the area’s Mennonite and Amish communities, yet also displayed a new level of innovation and excellence that set him apart. Before long Rutt was known as a leading name in American luxury cabinetry and Phares Rutt continued to grow his team of craftspeople in order to keep up with the demand. 

The Modern Face of Rutt Kitchen Cabinetry

In many ways, very little has changed in the production of Rutt Kitchen Cabinetry over the years. The workshop is still located in the quiet Pennsylvania countryside and the friendly craftspeople still produce each piece by hand – with just a little help from technology to ensure safety and quality. Many members of the team have been producing Rutt Cabinetry for decades, and the company makes a point to work with design partners that share this dedication. That is why Rutt and Elite Kitchen & Bath make such a great team. As a family owned and operated business since 1984 with an award-winning design team, Elite Kitchen & Bath knows how to treat a fine piece of cabinetry and how to treat customers fairly.
