Commissioning Process

Our Clients, soon to become Patrons, embark on the commissioning process by meeting with a member of The Rusland Movement Design team. We are very adept at listening to our clients as they express their vision and needs, ensuring the designs we create satisfy on every level.

Wherever possible, this first consultation will occur at the location for which the commission is destined. This allows us to absorb the intended future surroundings of the piece, and provides an opportunity to take accurate measurements and fully consider the intended setting. We would also at this point take note of any environment conditions that could affect the finished piece.

Following this consultation we develop the ideas discussed and prepare first draft sketches of the design. Clients are invited throughout this phase to provide as much feedback as possible, ensuring the final piece meets your aspirations. Once this phase has reached a conclusion a 3D digital model is produced that allows our client to see their piece from every angle and helps to provide a realistic perspective as to how the piece will fit into their home.

With the final design approved, a personal commission schedule and contract will be issued to the client. On receipt of the initial deposit, materials are ordered and work commences. We now welcome you as a Rusland Movement Patron.

It’s compelling to see our skilled makers as they take the design, which has developed from the initial sketch to the finished piece, using only the finest of materials and their own time served cabinetmaking skills. For Patrons keen to see their commission take shape we welcome visits to the workshop. We will also keep in touch via e-mail with videos and photographs of key steps in the making process.

Upon completion, it is these same craftsmen who deliver each finished piece and position it in its new home. Each Patron is presented with a Certificate of Provenance, which records the designer, the cabinetmaker and yourself as Patron.
