Robert Russo Mantels

Remodel - Middleton, Massachusetts “I wanted to replace my ugly modern mantels with something more classic and European. The Design Team made the learning process easier and with credibility. They are well informed, creative, and helpful. Without them I would have probably not used White River products. My fireplaces have been getting much attention by folks.” –Bob Russo


Jacob Johnson Entertainment Center

Fayetteville, Arkansas. I wanted to create a custom entertainment center that would be a stunning centerpiece for my Living Room. There was good communication all the way through the project. They were very quick and precise. I was pleased with the entire process from design through to construction. This is a large and complicated piece of furniture and it was built with precision. The Cherry wood and craftsmanship are absolute quality that few can do. This is a piece of furniture that will be cherished for years to come. Until we called WR, we had little expectation of how we were going to build this piece of furniture and what the cost was going to be. The WR team was great. I would give them 10 out of 10.” –Jacob Johnson


Dromborg Castle

New Construction Al Rahm of Sunrise Custom Homes Fayetteville, Arkansas. ”Building Dromborg Castle will always remain one of those great 4-year moments of my life. The owners loved the rubbled effects complimented by classically proportioned details including cabinetry, large cased openings, beams, entablatures, and mantels. We utilized stock profiles, custom curved carved motifs and species. The breadth, access, and knowledge were formidable and always handled meticulously. The quality was superior, the best in the Industry. Then and now, the interior millwork is what makes this home so impressive, capturing a lasting style. I have learned that the cost of quality products and professional assistance to achieve an exceptional outcome is absolutely worth the investment. Too many times, I have seen people regret the corners they cut in the past.” –Al Rahm


Bob Stauffer Residence

New construction Bentonville, Arkansas. “I wanted White River mouldings throughout my new home. But the showpiece of the home was the quartersawn White Oak library. I felt that the value of the White River job site visit was huge—I learned a lot. There’s a lot more to it than I realized. The Design Team understood and implemented the design extremely well. They didn’t overshow and understood my vision. Their experience showed. The drawings were very good—they put it all together. Just looking at catalog pictures was overwhelming. They didn’t sell us what we didn’t need, and were always aware of watching cost while making sure I loved what I got.” –Bob Stauffer


Baggett Residence

Large Remodel Birmingham, Alabama. “I wanted this to be a home that I can pass down to my children—a really quality house. I felt that people should walk in and stand in awe over all the detail. Dianne and I really like Classical ornament, columns, and arches, so I wanted no unornamented mouldings in this house. The Design Services were well worth the money. Now that it’s done, everyone that has walked through the house has been blown away by how beautifully it’s turned out. We’ve been very, very pleased.” –Jeff Baggett


Apartment Building Lobby Elevator Surround

Liz Douglas of Answer 4 Design - New York City, New York “The lobby was bare and unfinished looking without something around the elevator doors. I wanted to enhance the space using the existing Classical details for inspiration. I was very happy to work remotely. White River was on top of every detail – to the point of printing out a full size drawing that was about sixteen feet long. Impeccable attention to detail. The drawings were clear and easy to work with. This was a complicated design, so the shop drawings were critical. The products were beautiful. It was truly breathtaking to see the final product alongside the drawing. You’re on the top of my list the next time I have an appropriate project.” –Liz Douglas


Foyer Triple Doorway

Remodel, Tamara Catania of DesignWorks Interiors, Washington D.C. metro area. “My client had just replaced their front door and realized that it was out of place in the bare foyer. “I think the Design Team understood my site conditions well after talking with them at length and seeing their CAD drawings from my sketches. They seemed very interested and invested in making this a beautiful result. They tweaked anything I was concerned about, and when the project was completed they were anxious to see the end result. I was astonished at how much better the 3D moldings looked installed than I expected from the 2D drawings, which were wonderful. My client and her husband can’t say often enough how much they love the new moulding around the new front doors. It really is stunning and turned a ‘so-so’ foyer into a ‘work of art’ foyer. And the Design Team made me look like a genius.” –Tamara Catania


Andrea D’Alessio of D’Alessio Inspired

Architectural Designs, New York City, New York. “When I built my own home in 2004, White River’s complete product line was specified extensively. Their Design Team was collaborative in the design stage, and kept very active communication with me, creating the designs in CAD, dimensioned construction drawings, and take-offs. The architectural design drawings were very important in helping me to interpret my wishes—getting the scale and proportion right the first time. The quality of product surpassed my expectation, and arrived packaged and tallied precisely. After ten years of being installed on jobs, the trim is in perfect shape—no cracking or moving.

My relationship with White River customer service and designers was professional and prompt. I consider their Design Services so important. I think of it as ‘a complete owner’s manual for the installation of trim.’ The availability of samples too was so important. Interior millwork, designed and proportioned well for each project, adds a magnificence only it can.” –Andrea D’Alessio


Larry Denton of Larry Denton Construction

Fort Smith, Arkansas. “White River’s uniqueness comes from their professional posture that they possess. They have the ability to evaluate a project and present a design package that is consistent with the design or style of the architecture. They produce a design package and provide drawings that allow for a precise and speedy execution in the field. Their personal attention to details insures the product will meet the expectations of the builder, homeowner, and architect. The attention to detail and quality is superb. When it is the best, what else can be said? The product meets and exceeds expectations. I have used other trim suppliers and I have not found one yet that matches the quality and precision of White River’s products.

As mentioned earlier, the design capabilities, coupled with the computer drawings, make it much easier to execute a complex project with ease. Their detailing of special areas where things get complicated and their 3-D perspectives help paint the picture that is worth a thousand words. With all the custom homes that I have done in the past, the homeowners have been elated with the trim package. I definitely would recommend White River to any colleague or friend that I know without any hesitation. Everyone that I have had dealings with at White River was very professional and very helpful. I have no problem with you using my name and city on your website. As a matter of fact, I would feel honored. Keep up the good work and I enjoy doing business with you.” –Larry Denton


Mike Ferron of Precision Interior Products

(Dealer), Houston, Texas. “I have worked with White River for over 10 years starting with my personal home. One of my many successful projects was supplying White River along with Design Services for the Houston based company Modern Home Renovation. The White River staff has addressed all issues we as a distributor have faced, ranging from design, stock availability, freight, and making sure our customer is completely happy with the final result. After using White River’s Design Services for various jobs, our customers and carpenters are very pleased with the layout, detail, and product specification for their elevations. I enjoy working with White River and look forward to our next project.” –Mike Ferron
