Ruth, Theo

(1915 - 1971)

Theo Ruth was a Dutch cabinetmaker and furniture designer. He started working at the Dutch furniture company Artifort in 1936 and three years later he was the head of design, which he would be until his death in 1971. Ruth designed some of the most famous pieces for Artifort: the Congo (1952) and Pinguïn (1953) chairs.

Bloomberry is an antiques dealer specialized in exquisite twentieth century design, founded in 2005 by Patricia Keurentjes and Leander Meerman. Our strength is that we read the past differently and do have a keen eye for yet little known masterpieces. Our company is housed in a former textile factory that spans 5.000 square meters. It is located just near Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands, within two hours from Amsterdam, Bruxelles and Cologne. Only part of the collection is shown on the website. A visit -  by appointment only - gives you the full insight.
