Which white fabrics are durable for a sofa and chairs? 5 designer tips and room photos for decorating in white.

To use white fabrics on sofas and chairs, you'll want to make sure the fabrics are durable. Here are 5 tips for decorating a room in white:

1) Outdoor fabrics are very durable, even in white fabrics.
A sisal rug allows is a nice rich texture to accentuate the white fabrics. 

2) If you put white on bedding, it is sometimes machine washable.
Tone on tone fabrics are soothing. Gray and white make a great combination. 



3) You could put two fabrics, durable on the front, with white on the back. Notice the contrast fabric on the back of the chairs. The rich dark walnut coffee table is a nice contrast with all the white in this room. 

3) Bright white trim will help give you more of that "clean white feeling" you might be trying to achieve. The clean white trim & fabrics don't compete with  the textures & colors in the stone

4) Off white & ivory are a nice alternative to white. The rich camel walls accentuate  the beauty of the white window treatments and furniture.

5) Ultra suede is actually washable. And Microfiber is also a durable fabric if you want to use white.

White rooms have always been popular because they are soothing, and they feel clean, fresh, and clutter free. White fabrics should be chosen with special attention to durability, the tips above are a great place to start.
