Scott White – Honest furniture from a straightforward man.

Scott White, of White Design is disarmingly honest and straightforward. He makes no bones about how he came to be a furniture designer and, on his website, is totally open about some of the hard times he has been through.

The same is true of his furniture. Based in Albuquerque, he likes to meet people in their homes, talk to them about the furniture they want and then make it for them. It’s an approach that has brought him something akin to a family of customers. One of his clients, a well known athlete went as far as to buy Scott a top of the range road bike when he learned of his enthusiasm for the sport. Others simply show their appreciation by telling friends about his highly functional, beautifully made furniture.

White Design Dana Dinning Chairs

These are Scott’s Dana Dining Chairs, made from sculpted cherry and in many ways typical of Scott’s work. The function comes first and dictates the design. It’s then executed with an extraordinary degree of care resulting in a piece which is clearly hand made by a craftsman.

White Design C Table

This is the C Table. It’s simple, elegant and fun. It was Dwell magazine’s product of the day. A day doesn’t seem nearly long enougth.

White Design Guitar Pick Side Table

And these very elegant creations are Guitar Pick Side Tables in black walnut.  They almost seem to flow, the creation of a man who loves his materials.

Baltic Birch Chest of Draws White Designs

And again, a beautiful use of wood. Baltic Birch Chest of Draws with recycled white oak. 15″ X 24″ X 60″. Many of the furniture makers we meet tell us about how green their products are.  Scott makes what he prefers to call’ sustainability’ at the heart of his work. He says he makes furniture for people to keep, furniture that won’t end up in a land-full site.  His wood is re-purposed or local from America’s mid west. He doesn’t want to be using up oil by transporting materials half way around the world and back again. 90% of the metal he uses is recycled. The wood which is left behind from his furniture is made into accessories and even jewelry.

Regular readers of our blog may remember Freddy Hill from Bomb Factory Furniture, proud owner of a 300 lb great Dane. Well, Scott also works in a disused armaments factory and this is Sadie, who, he tells us is the sweetest thing you are ever going to meet. Maybe the ‘Designers and their dogs’ feature we threatened is something we are really going to have to do!
