It takes a certain level of risk to invest in a neutral light, or white sofa for your interior. As one of the most commonly used pieces of furniture in your home, your sofa will certainly need to stand up to wear and tear. However, a white sofa makes a magnificent statement of style, so if you’re feeling up to the challenge, then why not go for it? Here are some of our favourite options from Sevens…
Choosing a white sofa is effectively like adding a blank canvas to your home. It can be anything you want it to be, especially when paired with the right accessories or made to fit into a grander design scheme. What you build onto it is completely up to you.
To get your white sofa right, however, you will need to consider a few questions more carefully than when dealing with other colours. Do you want a fabric that’s textured or flat? Will a throw be an essential part of the aesthetic? And how do you plan to keep it clean? Do not fret. Let’s help you understand your options…
Getting the fabric right is key to the success of your white sofa. Why? Because white shows up stains like no other colour. As such, we think it’s important to invest in quality upholstery that is stain-resistant. Naturally-textured fabrics are great for deflecting dirt too, so choose wisely and opt for durable upholstery to make your sofa shine. Certain brushed linen cotton can also be professionally dry cleaned, which is helpful and pretty essential for a white sofa.’
Keep it clean
White sofas can seem like high maintenance, but if you are well prepared to take care of it, it need not be a cause of agony in your home. Look after your sofa and ensure it lasts a long time. Weekly care can go a long way so be sure to wipe down your white sofa regularly and vacuum it to remove dust. Rotate your cushions frequently to maintain and protect the fabric and maintain an even colour. As an added tip, ensure you leave enough space between your sofa, doorways and walls to avoid accidental marking.
Style it up
White is a versatile choice as it fits in with almost any colour scheme or design style. We suggest pairing your white sofa with some bright scatters and bold patterns for added definition. Whatever way you style it, in the end, a white sofa is always going to be a focal piece in your design, so give it the added flair it deserves.
