At the edge of the English Lake District, where the mountains are left behind and the water from its famous lakes flow into the sea, are the design studios, workshops and showrooms of The Rusland Movement...

The Lake District has always been a rich source of inspiration for artisan makers, writers and artists. We are fortunate that we are able to draw upon this rich heritage – we are the craftsmen and women of The Rusland Movement.

From our humble beginnings we have been building a reputation for producing furniture of the finest quality, made in the traditional way. The company has evolved and grown to now include a very select group of highly skilled crafts people, all devoted to their professions and all committed to the creation of future classic pieces.

We are located in our bespoke Workshop and Studio premises in Backbarrow, near the southern tip of Windermere. A tour of our Studio, Showrooms and Workshop are all part of the Commissioning process. We take time to understand you and ensure you are comfortable with our whole process and approach. Please accept our open invitation to drop in and see for yourself.

Everything we produce starts life in our design studio.

“If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” William Morris

Our design studio is led by experienced makers and designers. When you commission a piece from us your designer and your maker are on hand to oversee every step of the construction process, almost all of which, even today, is done by hand. The traditional skills of cabinetmaking are carefully maintained, with each craftsman having served their time, and each apprentice receiving direct in-depth training.

Our showrooms exhibit lots of example pieces of our work, including furniture, soft furnishings and handmade bespoke kitchens. We now also offer a complete Interior Design Service.

We are pleased to say that our reputation continues to grow and as a result our clients and patrons are now spread throughout the world.

Welcome to our website, please feel free to ask any questions that come to mind and hopefully we will meet you soon to explore your next project.
