We got married young, some would say too young - but we didn't care...when you know...you just know. Six years later we have a business and two daughters - their names are Selah Grace and Oak Louise. When we got married we had no idea what we were doing or where we were heading but we just went ... went about life as if we did and figured it out as we went along. We figured out that home was something important to both of us. A place to hide, a place to gather, a place you can be as messy, or for Nathan, a place to be as neat and orderly as you would like...colour coordinated wardrobes and all. Home was ours.
Nathan's eye for detail and his love for timber led him to the study of boat building where he completed a four year shipwright apprenticeship. Meanwhile, I studied at uni and completed a degree in design majoring in Graphic design.
Life was busy yet something was missing. After uni I found myself meddling with a sewing machine and Nathan gave up boats for furniture and suddenly, everything seemed a little clearer. The smell of timber, the touch of linen, that giddy feeling from seeing a concept sketch become something tangible - something we can sit on, eat on, organise and store things and most importantly - something that gathers people - yes - this is what we were meant to do... together.
So in short, Mr White makes the furniture and Mrs White makes the textiles. We are all about simple, honest, handmade design with a focus on the natural beauty of the material whether it be timber, linen or leather.
