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, Cartmel 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.
Do feel free to visit, Cartmel or Greenodd, and experience for yourself, the outstanding craftsmanship upon which the name and reputation of The Rusland Movement has been built.
As you may have heard (my tongue is firmly in my cheek) we have a little bit of an exhibition going on at Blackwell, The Arts and Crafts House.
Throughout the remaining 4 and a bit months, we're holding regular "Meet the Maker Mondays" and some evening seminars, the first of which will take place on 28th February.
If you would like to come along and watch us squirm, erm, I meant, learn lots and lots about how we work, gain design inspiration, use traditional skills alongside technological innovation and so on, it would be rather lovely to see you.

Sounds like quite a bit of effort, I know...but we're worth it. I hope...
