Rutt Designer Series: Ruskin, Exeter, Prairie                    

Designed By Scott A. Stultz Exclusively For Rutt

“Rutt HandCrafted Cabinetry has set the standard for luxury custom cabinetry for 65 years and created a unique position as the manufacturer of high-end custom cabinetry. Rutt’s attention to detail, design integrity, heirloom quality finishes and wood species has gained them a reputation as a design innovator and the Creator of Timeless Originals®.  They have partnered with Scott Stultz, a design leader in the realm of luxury kitchens, baths, furniture and residential environments. Scott’s work is driven by a passion for art and architectural theory, culture, and creative excellence. For more than three decades, his work in product development, kitchen and showroom design, marketing and education has been sought by manufacturers, architects, interior designers, kitchen design firms and discriminating homeowners in the US and abroad.  The collaboration has resulted in three distinctly unique series of designer cabinetry, which include Ruskin, Prairie, and Exeter.  They are tributes to historic architecture, design, and culture for the fine modern day home.


Cutting across a rising tide of modernist influenced styles, Rutt is proud to introduce a design system that connects history to contemporary sensibilities. See what happens when we create a fresh design language from classical Greek, the timeless cathedrals of Europe and the soul of the Arts & Crafts movement, steeped in theory from the great art and architecture critic for which it is named.


Rutt’s Prairie series represents a beloved American sense of place that grew out of the Arts and Crafts school.  It is full of nuance, after the landscape it is named for.  It promotes a more contemporary aesthetic, while presenting elegance and clarity of form that distinguishes it from a sea of sameness.


Sir Edwin Lutyens, one of the great English Traditionalists, defined the landscape of Exeter, England with his Castle Drogo.  The Exeter series bridges the gap between the familiar comfort of traditional styles and the clean simplicity of Modern Minimalism.

Cesar is an Italy-based kitchen innovator and manufacturer known worldwide for excellence in modern Italian kitchens. Cesar has been creating custom kitchen design in Italy since 1969 . Our kitchen designers are on hand to help you dream up a new kitchen that embraces your aesthetic and lifestyle. Your dream kitchen is within your reach.

Cesar History

Cesar’s history is seeped in tradition and family roots, and is indelibly tied to the Italian countryside, where the company was founded. Cesar was founded by Vittorio Cester, who in 1969 transformed his furniture workshop into a modern furniture factory, which was at that time called “Cesar Arredamenti”. Cester’s original workshop was nestled in the northern Italian countryside of Pramaggiore, where the heart of the company’s main operations as well as kitchen design and production has remained throughout Cesar’s history and still sits today. Like its location, Cesar’s ownership has remained tied to its roots throughout the Cesar history. Cesar is proud to be a family-run business and is currently under the leadership of Vittorio’s children Gina and Dante Cester, who began working with their father in the 1980’s.


European Kitchen Design

Cesar was founded with a focus on simple, yet functional kitchen design. It was one of the first Italian companies to produce modular, dynamic and versatile kitchen cabinetry systems, a style that was gaining popularity in America by the 1970’s. When founding Cesar, Vittorio Cester had a vision of blending European design with the versatility of these modular kitchen systems, which were created with a strong focus on ergonomic functionality. Throughout Cesar’s history, the company has continued to embrace its original passion for function meets innovation by blending the sleek simplicity of European kitchen design with a continued dedication to technological advances in kitchen ergonomics. The company has always had a strong focus on efficiency and quality of industrial production. Cesar has also remained true to its intimate family roots, both in operations and in its relationship to its clientele, which is also the philosophy adapted by our in-house kitchen designers. Starting in the 1980’s, Cesar adopted an unprecedented personalized approach to industrial cabinet production by custom manufacturing each piece it sold based on individual customer needs. Customization became and remains at the forefront of the company’s operational standards, lending a personal touch to each and every order fulfilled by Cesar.

International Expansion and Growth

While Cesar maintains an intimacy in its relationship to its customers in its operating standards, the company’s reach is far from small. Having grown exponentially from its humble beginnings, today Cesar is a world leader in modern European kitchen design working according to the highest environmental standards and is present in markets across Europe and the United States. Backed by a worldwide reputation of excellence that the company established from its original location an hour outside of Venice, Italy, Cesar was proud to officially expand to the United States in 2016.  Today, Cesar serves delighted clients in the tri-state area, bringing Italian design dreamt up in the northern Italian countryside to America and through doing so, honoring Cesar history and Vittorio’s original dream of blending function and innovation.
