Artist & Designer Marc Staples

The business idea for the DownHomeModern online store was born of a dream that was finally ready to bring to life.

For as long as I can remember I have been drawn to the idea of making a fun contribution to the spirit of our world. Having been involved in the corporate fine arts business over the span of more than three decades it was a logical next-step that I would combine my passion for design with a focus on creating fun and unique home decor, garden art and landscape elements.

So with additional pushes from my wife Diana and our marketing partner Cyn Meadows, we have worked to create this exclusive handmade collection of our Frontier Mission Wind Bells™, Buggs Island Windchimes, Blueberry Gnomes, a few unique wine racks, and other household items to make your home uniquely out of the ordinary. All of our products are individually handcrafted in our Clarksville, Virginia studio.

Through the DownHomeModern online store we are now able to share many of my original creations with you. So thank you for shopping with us at DownHomeModern... and please share this site with your friends.
