White River works regularly with Set Designers for film and television. One of the most common requests is for carvings and mouldings that reflect the tone and appearance of “White House,” “Court Room” and related themes. In the following images we identify the Large Urn and Fluting with Bellflowers Frieze on the mantel behind Keifer Sutherland in ABC’s Designated Survivor.
ABC’s Designated Survivor: Over 9 of White River’s mouldings & woodcarvings were used in various sets, pictured is the mantel in the Presidential Diplomatic Reception room (L) and later transformed into the Queen’s Bedroom(R).

In the above images White River’s cobels, decorative mouldings and wood carving onlays make an austere presence as they decorate the backdrop of the White House in both CBS’s Madam Secretary and HBO’s All the Way.
Here are some of the White River Products seen in these set designs:

Here is an example of taking an interior inspiration, “As seen on TV,” and creating a beautiful room for your home. White River designed this library for a private residence with a combination of woodcarvings, and decorative Mon Reale mouldings, all stained to match perfectly.
One might be surprised at the concept of using elegant and classical architecture designs for the backdrop of a creepy horror story – In essence, it helps intensify the suspense. White River was happy to help put this spin in to play –our decorative mouldings were used in parts of FX’s American Horror Story’s scenery. Go behind-the-scenes and hear first-hand, from the Set Designers and Actors on how they feel this set supported their characters and the show’s goals. (Watch Video Clip)
