“You have restored my faith in human nature; in people’s ability to use their skills to create beauty and quality.”
“Marcus has a unique talent for delivering stunning designs that also function superbly and integrate seamlessly into the everyday life of the client. Where many seek to push the limits of design but fail to meet practical requirements, Marcus succeeds. I have personally been entertained in the rooms he creates, and seen and used his furniture; for those who wish to acquire original and beautiful pieces, to be used and enjoyed for many years in their homes or at work, Designs by Marcus White represents one of the very best choices.”
Richard Horden internationally renowned architect and author
"Marcus created a wonderful kitchen at Bluff House, althought the title kitchen barely does it credit. Our original hopes were totally exceeded and the attention to every small detail that Marcus lavished on the process has left us with a beautiful and timeless space to enjoy every day"

“Marcus has really impressed me by his ability to translate my vision of the ideal kitchen-diner into a creative but practical design that has resulted in a different and very original space. Marcus responded to my request for something unique by introducing different elements – curved polished steel cupboard handles, American walnut stairs based on a polished steel support, and a fantastic smashed glass display cabinet set within an American walnut frame – into the finished product.
A key aspect of Marcus’ kitchen designs is the ability to create a feeling of spaciousness whilst increasing your storage capacity. Seeing this done in our Dorset kitchen-diner meant that when considering a revamp of our London kitchen we again turned to Marcus and were rewarded with a design that has produced a simple but distinctive room - the smashed glass work surface proving both practical and eye catching.
Some time after completion of our London kitchen we asked Marcus to design a dining room table for our Dorset dining space. The result has been a striking piece of furniture that has been much admired by our friends.
Moving into the upstairs space our request for fitted wardrobes using unusual wood veneers caused consternation amongst some of the local cabinet makers but again Marcus and his team rose to the challenge. Marcus arranged for us to visit his veneer supplier to choose our veneer and then produced a design that is elegant and marries the traditional feel of the room with the more contemporaneous existing furniture.”
“We were searching for a furniture maker to develop an idea we had, for a contemporary dining table and chairs for a new dining area being built. We wanted something unique which took its styling cues from the compass rose. Another major consideration was that the furniture was practical and robust, as we have a large family with lots of grandchildren. After speaking to a number of potential candidates we had the distinct feeling that our requirements were merely being adapted around what they could either design or make. We then met Marcus White, who from the very start clearly had not only very exciting and original ideas, but his “can do" attitude filled us with confidence. His interpretation of our brief exceeded our expectations, and the finished dining set is spectacular.
We have since ordered living room furniture, and a further nine limited edition pieces for our bedroom and dressing room. The designs and quality of work are at the very highest end of the scale, and everyone who has seen the furniture has been utterly amazed. We recently commissioned a sideboard in ripple sycamore for the kitchen to complement the dining set. Once again the design is fantastic and we are looking forward to having it delivered soon. We consider our purchases lifelong investments. For anyone looking for contemporary, practical, well thought out designs, built to a fantastic quality, we really couldn't recommend Marcus White and his team more.”
