Roman Thomas Showroom Visit: A Lasting Impression

As we ventured out into the field for a day of showroom visits, one of the stops on our list was the Roman Thomas showroom on Madison Ave. It was our first time in the new showroom location, so we took this opportunity to reacquaint ourselves with the brand as a...

Collective Design Fair: When Opposites Attract

It’s hard to imagine for some, that an occasional day in the office at White Webb entails going to a design fair and spending the day looking at pretty things.

Although I wouldn’t call myself a minimalist, I’m wary of a lot of traditional holiday décor, which can make a room feel as overstuffed as Santa’s sleigh.
