The Russells difference

Creating a home you love takes care and attention to detail, and a passion for beautiful interiors. That’s what you’ll get from us at Russells.

Hands pinning curtains fabrics


We make all our curtains and the vast majority of our blind range here in New Zealand, in sunny Nelson.

In our sewing workshop your curtains are custom crafted from fabrics of your choice. Our curtain makers start by checking each piece is flawless, before carefully measuring, cutting and sewing, creating for you, quality window furnishings that elevate your home.

That same meticulousness happens in our blind factory, where precise hand skills and technology combine to create the Russells range of blinds.

For the few products that are made outside our factory, we can assure you our partner manufacturers have been chosen with care to meet our standards.

Our history

Quality and service that's timeless

Russells was originally founded in 1929 by George P Russell as a furniture business. Over time the focus of the business shifted to window furnishings. It’s still locally owned and operated, now by Bill and Jenny Liddell, who draw on the long tradition of quality and service that four generations of the Russell family established. Today, Russells employs over 80 staff throughout the country with our head office and workshop still based in Nelson.
