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.

Great looking kitchen! Congratulations! The light fixture is fantastic...which company is it from? If you tell me it's custom I might have to shoot myself.

It is a custom fixture we designed specifically for this location. O'Lampia in NYC fabricated it and have single shade fixtures that are similar.
