How It All Started...

After moving to Massillon, Ohio, I realized there were limited options when shopping for home décor in the Stark County area. I craved the stores that I discovered while living in Columbus but couldn't seem to find that same experience here, so I decided to create it myself. My partner Ryan and I founded Rust & Cinder in November of 2022 and opened our shop to Stark County and beyond in March of 2023.

Primitive and country aesthetics have a place, but we particularly enjoy a more modern approach to design. Imagine a home with polished concrete flooring, high ceilings with exposed ventilation, and the warm glow of Edison bulbs that can be seen from the outside environment.Now imagine this same style of home but with the infusion of our eclectic, uncommon décor. Our four core design elements are rustic, industrial, modern farmhouse, and vintage. We want to be known for one-of-a-kind statement pieces that can generate conversation.

We're so glad you're here...
