Mr. and Mrs. White: A Design Love Story

Julie Carlson March 17, 2015

Meet the charming Mr. and Mrs. White of Sydney, Australia, who “got married young, some would say too young,” as Sasha (the wife) says. “But we didn’t care. When you know, you know. And six years later we have a business and two daughters.”

Their business was born when Nathan, who completed a four-year shipwright apprenticeship, segued into furniture making after feeling that “something was missing,” and Sasha, after finishing university with a degree in graphic design, found herself “meddling with a sewing machine.”

“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. 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 recycled timber, linen, or leather.”
