Marcus Lumber









Check out the latest creation our interior designer Miranda put together in our showroom. This collection for March is called the Modern Farmhouse and appeals to many of our customers.

The design incorporates natural materials throughout the home design with the wood floor, iron metals, and some reclaimed wood shelves to accent. The design offers simplicity and comfort with the clean lines and natural color pallet selected.  Miranda adds, “Earthy shades, like browns and grays are great for this style. I would also add some industrial items like barn doors, iron light fixtures, galvanized decor and even reclaimed furniture to a home wanting this design feel.”

Let us help you on your next design project!
