About Us

Rume was established over seventeen years ago when husband and wife Richard and Libby Baker left the family furniture firm to strike out on their own. The philosophy behind the new company was to delight in the beautiful and the beautifully made and to pursue this by making lovely furniture of original design to the very highest standards here in England. Taking the idea of classic English furniture as a starting point Richard stripped it back to its barest essentials to capture its inimitable timelessness. It is this enduring yet contemporary quality that is quintessentially Rume. The pieces are never mere copies, never pastiche, they are resolute in their contained elegance and confidence, furniture that is both familiar and startlingly original. Rume sofas are not held in stock but made from scratch to the highest possible standard, to the individual specification of our clients, in our Sussex workshops. Our sofas are an exceptional blend of tradition and innovation with frames from sustainable kiln dried beech with glued, screwed and dowelled joints, legs in a timber and finish of your choice and with upholstery employing the finest of modern materials and techniques. Rume design and make beautiful timeless furniture that is built to last and as such represents good value for money and respect for the environment. If you are interested in our sofas then please contact us and we can advise, send you fabric samples based on your preferences and give you a quotation. Our lead times are approximately ten weeks and we can deliver anywhere within the United Kingdom and international transport can be arranged on a case by case basis.
