Business Description
" I had the great pleasure of meeting Rhea and her design partner Steve Schappacher on Shelter Island near New York when I shot their beach house for a book on coastal architecture. Steve Schappacher is the architect of the duo; a design genius who can see possibilities where the rest of us see run-down wrecks. Rhea White is the interior designer of the family; a woman who can style a house like no one – and I mean NO ONE – I've ever met!"
Janelle McCulloch. A Library of Design

SchappacherWhite is an architectural and interior design firm founded by Steve Schappacher and Rhea White. Their experience includes the diversity of realizing solutions for complex building projects, historic preservation, to detailed interiors and furnishings for commercial properties, as well as a number of single family homes and residential interiors. Often this work includes custom designed furniture, fixtures and lighting for the client's specific needs.

Both their spatial solutions and product design have received the international recognition of awards, patents, exhibits and critical acknowledgements. This multidisciplinary expertise is applied seamlessly to all levels of a project to develop creative, cost effective solutions within financial and time constraints that respond genuinely to the particular requirements of each client and site.

The range of their practice is intentional. The harmony derives not from style or trends, but from a process where all parts of their work continue to enlighten the other. SchappacherWhite strives to create appropriate and intelligent design by finding meaning in the diversity.

How wonderful. I have inherited a Moroccan rug and after 20 years it still smells like camel poo - but I love it.

Wuff: have you seen the rugs at KMart at the moment (mostly smallish in size). Try Temple & Webster, they have a good range of Morrocan motif rugs in various sizes.
