The Rusland Movement is a group of dedicated craftspeople and designer-makers, all of whom have their home in Cumbria. They invest heart and soul in all that they create, designing and making beautifully elegant, commissioned pieces of furniture and household accessories, destined to become future heirlooms.
Their design studio is under the same roof as their workshop, meaning the designer of your commission is on hand to oversee every step of the construction process, almost all of which is done by hand. Whilst this may take more time, it ensures exceptional attention to detail and thus the remarkable work for which they have become renowned.
Attention to detail applies not only to the approach to making your furniture, but also in the mastering of the skills needed in its creation. All of this takes time, experience, devotion to the craft and use of only the finest materials.
At The Rusland Movement, Backbarrow showroom, clients can view show pieces of fine furniture, exhibited to inspire their own commissioned heirloom furniture. Appointments can also be made to visit and take a peep behind the scenes of their bustling workshops, just down the road in Greenodd, or for a one-to-one design consultation with Creative Director and designer, Dan Critchley.
A little bit of sunshine on a dreadfully dreary day...
As part of our current exhibition in the beautiful Cartmel Priory, we have a selection of artwork by the inimitable, Tina Balmer on display. It’s been a little while since we worked with Tina,what with our recent workshop move and Blackwell exhibition, but we’re delighted to have her exhibiting alongside us again now.
This is a close up of a section of “Orchids, Roses and Lilies”, oil on canvas...it’s stunning!
