Homestead Design is a new business that has recently started in the Albert Lea area. Husband and wife team Matt and
Angela Moller of rural Glenville are artisans who are combining their skills and talents to create rustic, handmade
furniture, home decor and art pieces.
Matt, a longtime plumber by trade, uses his construction skills and attention to detail to craft beautiful furniture in the
popular modern farmhouse and rustic industrial styles. He uses a combination of metal pipe and Douglas Fir and knotty
pine wood, and uses stain and finishing techniques to give the wood a rustic, reclaimed look with the strength and
stability of new construction.
Angela, a homebased
corporate graphic designer, lends her design expertise to the business, as well as handpainting
and designing graphics for the home decor and wooden signs that Matt constructs.
The couple enjoys experimenting with a variety of styles and finishing techniques to appeal to a broad audience. Matt
enjoys the art of bringing the wood to life and enhancing its natural beauty with finishing techniques. Angela is grateful
for the opportunity to put her paintbrushes back to work, after having set them aside for several years while focusing on
being a busy stayathome
and workathome
mom. The couple has four children, ages 6, 9, 12 and 15, and lives on an
acreage near Glenville that previously belonged to Matt's grandparents. The business name, Homestead Design, is a
tribute to the heritage of the family farm.
