Harold M. Schwartz was an American designer, architect and sculptor born in Ambridge in the United States and passed away in the United States. After he finished his high school at Schenley in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania he moved to France to study at a French University. Later on, after his studies, Schwartz moved back to Pittsburgh and started designing furniture for Aluminum Company of America and Romweber.
Those three furniture manufacturers: American Furniture Company, Batesville Cabinet Company and Batesville Coffin Company merged together as RomWeber, each company was founded in 1879 in Batesville, Indiana. In the early beginnings, they started selling their furniture nation wide, quite a rarity at the time. The RomWeber brand stands for high quality furniture. Until today, the company is family-owned.
