    A good design should last over time (Achille Castiglioni)

    A good design should last over time ( Achille Castiglioni) (written in English and Dutch) Investing in Italian design is what OnWhiteDesign recommends. Now that I am professionally involved in interior design on a daily basis, my passion for furniture design is growing strongly. In our interior projects, we see an increased demand for Italian design.

    All I want for Christmas is food. Part3 (written in English and Dutch) Two weeks to go before the kick off of our Christmas-family party! It is time for me to start thinking about my table setting and checking my tableware. The Christmas decoration on the festive table requires some more thinking from me this year. The kids have decided that Christmas dinner will be gourmet. I hear you saying, that makes it easy for the hostess. Right, we can all sit together at the table at the same moment, but let it just be the “gourmet” that becomes a challenge for my table decoration. Normally a garland of wintergreen with…
