As featured in Old-House Interiors, American Bungalow, and Fine Woodworking, Gerald Rucks was inspired by the American Arts and Crafts Movement. Gerry grew up in the greater metropolitan area of Detroit, Michigan and worked for years as a home builder, dabbling in furniture production. He went on to create copper lighting and hardware, all in the arts and crafts style. As a collector of period Arts and Crafts furniture and accessories, he is dedicated to reproducing fine original pieces and continues to develop quality products that flow with the styles of Mission, Arts and Crafts, Rustic and Lodge style decor. From accent pieces and utility pieces - clocks and hardware and storage chests - to lodge style lighting, we build all with the same high standards.
