Fabulous Living Rooms

Um, can you tell there is a trend going on with living room furniture? White!!! It’s all white! Everywhere you look you see rooms full of white sofas, chairs. ottomans, tables…Can you do white? Will you? Well I know there are lots of practical reasons to not splurge on a brand new white sofa, but I think if we truly admit it, we really dig the trend. I know I do. Of course I went ahead and got my white sofa (not a splurge from IKEA) and there are lots of white sofas out there I would have loved to get instead, but all in all I am pleased.  I don’t have any kids, so I can risk this less expensive option for now. If you have the money however, buy a more expensive sofa that offers a stain resistant fabric or even an indoor/outdoor fabric that can be scrubbed. I think this is less a trend and more a classic. So go for it, if you dare!52

    The white sofas look great but just aren’t practical. I have a cream-colored sofa but it’s kind of been a nightmare. I don’t have any kiddos but having a husband and cats makes keeping it tidy tough.

      I understand where you are coming from. Got and cat and hubby myself. I think the other key to owning a white sofa is, this can’t really be your everyday use sofa. I have another entertainment room where the tv is that has a tan sectional. This is where we spend most of our time. The cat likes this sofa better and doesn’t sit on the white one. My husband doesn’t sit on it either. It stays in its pretty clean room that only gets used when guest come over, or whe I want to sit and sip a cup of tea. So I am totally agreeing with you that they are hard to maintain and not practical as your main “lounge around in” sofa.
