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.

Nice article- Just remember that it will be assembled in your home but many homeowners opt to sell their pool tables as part of the home to new buyers.

Thanks for the article and the images, Karen. The dimensional information is very, very helpful, I also love the lime green felt on a couple of the tables in your images. A few years ago, one of our clients asked us to remove the furniture from the middle of her extremely formal living room and put in a pool table. We thought she was joking........

Crittall windows are still made by the original company crittall-windows.co.uk, but your local glazier/glass window supplier should be able to order them or suggest a similar style. Best of luck
