There’s nothing better than a beautiful white sofa to set the tone of your space. It brings a sense of calm and creates the foundations for a true home escape. But how do you decide which white is best for you? In sourcing our fabrics, we took our time to thoughtfully curate specific shades of white that would work for a variety of styles and spaces—creating a collection of tried and true white hues.

Performance-backed Quality

You no longer have to sacrifice style for lifestyle when choosing white upholstery for your home. Each of our lightest materials have been selected to go beyond high durability marks. Our Performance fabrics are equipped to resist stains, and spills bead up on the surface to be easily wiped away—order a swatch kit to test it out for yourself. Luxury like this can actually live in a home—it’s all about beautiful fabrics that can hold up to our modern lifestyles, inspiring us to truly indulge at home.

Styling with Whites

Styling a white sofa offers endless potential that evolves with you and your style. We chose fabrics that not only offer versatility in designing the perfect white room, but that vary in texture—making it easy to add natural dimension and interest within a neutral color palette. You'll find shades that pair well with cool tones, warm tones, or that are versatile enough to work with either. In any space, using tones of white creates a light and refreshingly airy feel—adding brightness where you want it most. 

As natural lighting varies from home to home, your best guide will always be to order a free swatch kit and compare them in your own unique setting. From tones that are pure and bright to the creamy, warm, and soft, use our guide to find the perfect shade of white for your piece.
