White Webb is an interior and furniture design firm based in New York City. Its principals, Matthew White and Frank Webb, bring a sense of history to every project, but balance it with an appreciation for modern living.
Interior designer and author, Matthew White was selected as one of the “AD 100” (Architectural Digest’s list of the 100 best designers in the world). Rather than being known for a specific look, he creates something new with every project. His passion for history is clearly evident in his work, while his partnership with Frank Webb (a modernist) presents a refreshing blend of old and new. Although their projects are stylistically diverse, there is a consistent sensibility within the work – warmth, comfort, beauty, quality and a keen interest in lasting design.
Like his design partner, Frank enjoys working in a variety of styles, focusing on architectural appropriateness as the foundation for his design work. In addition, he shares his passion for Italian design, citing the work of Gio Ponti and Paolo Buffa as major inspirations. Where he differs, however, is in his orientation as a modernist, favoring clean lines, innovative materials and the applications of new technologies to the design process. By incorporating a blend of modern and classic style, the design duo has won rave reviews, most recently being named to House & Garden’s “New Tastemakers – 50 for the Future of Design.”
