Our Story

Katrina Fauss and Susan Williams are the craftswomen of Marsh Farm Designs.

Marsh Farm Designs was born of our desire to craft beautiful and functional home décor items and furniture out of natural and reclaimed materials.

Our hand crafted décor and furniture items are born from the heart and hands of either Katrina or Susan, made and built in our own studio and workshop. We use predominately natural or reclaimed items such as wool fiber and yarn, vintage wooden crates and discarded old furniture items. Whenever possible, we source our supplies from local donation centers, such as the Habitat for Humanity Restore, local charity thrift shops, locally owned antique stores, or flea markets. We are always looking for new local sources of wool sweaters, wool fibers, vintage crates, and used furniture and cabinetry.

This desire to preserve and support our local community extends to our personal lives as well. We purchased our home, which we named Marsh Farm, in 2012. After many years of non-sustainable farming practices, the 2.75 acres was in rough shape. We are working to return the land to its natural state by mechanically removing invasive species with very limited use of chemicals and replanting the land with native, non-invasive species. Our vegetable garden expands every year, with the goal of growing and preserving enough of our own produce to get us through the year. Our “livestock” currently consists of 5 chickens, 2 rescue rabbits, 2 feisty cats and 1 adorable Beagle-Jack Russell mix!

We sincerely hope you love and enjoy what we have created as much as we loved and enjoyed creating it!
