Arnold was a founder and principal of A. Rudin Furniture until he retired in 2012. He had the ability to study designer/architectural plans and to envision, construct and cost out custom furniture to the design trade. He was a vital asset to the production and the growth of the firm. Arnold’s first love was his family. He and Beverly enjoyed world travel and many family occasions together at their home. Arnold was always personally involved with his children and grandchildren. He was a source of great advice, moral compass and a loving husband, brother, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
