Lorts Manufacturing was founded in 1966 by Andy Lorts who was operating a small independent furniture store in Phoenix. The first generation of product was Early American in style and made from alder bought from Northwest Hardwoods in the Pacific Northwest. Lorts still makes it’s furniture from alder from Northwest Hardwoods and is their oldest customer. Lorts quickly built a reputation for making the highest quality bedroom furniture in the world. Lorts today still receives mail from customers who still love their Hallmark canopy bedroom set. The Company also began to create new designs for southwest, English Country and French Country styles.
Mike Lorts and his wife, Sylvia, created new designs and the company grew. Soon customers would ask if the items could be done in different finishes. After answering “no” the first several times, Lorts determined that there was a market for furniture with finish choices. And soon Lorts furniture developed the reputation for having the finest finishes in the country.
In 2005, Mike Lorts sold the company to his son, Ty and his wife Michelle, ensuring that 3 generations of Lorts would run the company. The company has since moved to its current Arizona manufacturing facility. Lorts has also made a name in custom furniture, either from a rough sketch or a simple modification of an existing item. In 2010, Lorts began to sell wood exposed upholstery, allowing for its beautiful wood finishes to be combined with fine seating choices. Lorts has also earned a reputation for having some of the best customer service in the industry. The Lorts family and the more than 100 Lorts employees ensure each piece is worthy of the Lorts name and tradition: furniture passed down from generation to generation because of quality and style that transcends time, fashion and fads.
Lorts is able to modify most of its pieces to different sizing or configurations. If what you see doesn’t quite meet your needs, work with Glen Lusby Interiors to create a piece that will work perfectly. Many Lorts dining tables tops are interchangeable for a re-fitting charge. If you have an idea of a piece that isn’t a modification of an existing Lorts piece, many times they are able to produce that as well. Glen Lusby Interiors and Lorts want your home to reflect what works for you.
