Why did we begin this Journey?

Luxe Rust is the culmination of 40+ years of design, high-end retail and construction experience.  

Carolyn started in the retail market over 20 years ago.  She started as a sales person, then Assistant Manager, onto Visuals Manager and finally as General Manager of one of the highest revenue shops in the Las Vegas market

Daniel started learning woodworking and cabinet manufacturing when he was just 15 years old.  He worked thru the ranks over the years starting as ¨grunt with a broom¨, to shop foreman, to Kitchen Designer, and onto owning a cabinet shop with 20+ employees.

It became apparent to both that the market has been flooded with cheap knockoff products that are not intended to last.  Products that were heavy or expensive were traded for easily sourced, manufactured and shipped products.  We have seen cast iron, wool, and solid wood replaced with resin, poly-blend fabrics and particle board.

With an emphasis on saving our past we find furniture and decor items that have value because of the materials, build quality or rarity.  We also LOVE parts and pieces.  We manufacture furniture, lighting and art from old junk.  Each item is unique, handmade and one-of-a-kind.

We think this is important.  Not only for the environment (and style of course) but also to keep something alive and pass it on to the next generation.  

Finally, we genuinely believe that everyone should collect and surround themselves with pieces that they feel a connection with.
