A Note on Our Experts: Richard and Peter Schultz

After 20 years working for Knoll and collaborating with modern furniture titans like Harry Bertoia, Richard Schultz went into business for himself.

After 20 years working for Knoll and collaborating with modern furniture titans like Harry Bertoia, Richard Schultz went into business for himself. He leapt to the forefront of outdoor furniture design with the clean, white lines of his 1966 Collection, a modern classic that Schultz continues to update and refine today. Not one to rest on his laurels, Schultz recently designed the dappled and sculptural Topiary series, an outdoor collection modeled on the local foliage in Pennsylvania. Peter Schultz, Richard’s son and a Yale-trained architect, now heads his father’s company.
