Richard White's Profile

About

My background is in painting and architecture. My furniture draws on both for the sculptural, "neo-modern" forms and the saturated colors in many of the finishes. Like most working today, I am inspired by the mid-century modernists. They redefined furniture, but in doing so, they stripped it of much of its romance. I am also inspired by nature. My job, as I see it, is to take these resources and transform them into something new: a new kind of modern, if you will. I see it as softer and more organic than mid-century. Cezanne and Thoreau, two of my heroes, both said to go to nature for inspiration. I take that as good advice. If I am able to introduce a hint of humor, all will be well.
