While opposites may attract, great marriages are usually based on mutual understandings, shared goals, and a common sensibility. For all of these reasons, Matthew White and Frank Webb are thrilled by their new union with Donghia, Inc., international purveyors of exceptional style and timeless designs.
With the break-out success of their Clearly Classic line of acrylic occasional tables, White Webb has been eager to broaden the collection, as well as its audience. As in romance, finding the right partner takes determination, experimentation and a touch of kismet. Donghia, with its emphasis on classically inspired yet distinctly modern design, a 40 year history in the luxury design business, and a global network of gorgeous showrooms, proved to be the ideal match.
Starting April 1, 2010, Donghia will showcase White Webb’s Clearly Classic line in 12 of its showrooms across the United States. To commemorate the new partnership, White Webb has created a new design for the collection, the Arc Table. With references to the classic Roman arch, the piece conveys the same solidity and beauty while being equally at home in traditional and modern interiors. In imagining this table, the designers took inspiration from the clean-lined, substantial work of Angelo Donghia, the iconic interior designer and late founder of Donghia, Inc.
“In the design world, the words ‘classic, elegant and timeless’ tend to be overused and frequently misapplied, but there’s no better description for Donghia,” said Frank Webb. Joining forces with a company we so greatly respect and admire is a dream come true, added Matthew White. For Donghia, the new partnership presents an opportunity to expand its array of offerings while staying true to its design ethos. According to the firm’s Creative Director, Chuck Chewning, “White Webb speaks our language, which is evident from their beautifully complementary designs.”
To see the collection in person, you can visit Donghia showrooms in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Dania, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Washington, DC. For more information on the line, visit White Webb.
