There are still those that tell us “no white after Labor Day.” We’re here to tell you there’s longevity in white, especially when it comes to furnishings for your home. In fact, stylish white furnishings have long been timeless staples for interior designers.
Today, the crisp shade can be found in a wide range of modern designs, proving that white furnishings not only look sleek and beautiful, but they still have lasting power in the home.
To inspire you and show you the possibilities with white furnishings, we’ve curated three looks for three different rooms in the home with pieces from a few of our favorite retailers.
See the looks below and try adding your favorite designs in white in your own 3D home.
A Clean-Lined & Cozy Living Room
Design a living room that’s equal parts contemporary and cozy with a mix of foundational furnishings in white. This Caitlin Sofa from Interior Define in ivory fabric features deep, cushioned arms and backs that make it the perfect piece for lounging, while its soft curves and option for brass legs will help give the space a warm yet modern vibe.
Place it atop the Souk Wool Rug from West Elm to play up a graphic black and white scheme. The rug’s Moroccan-inspired pattern will add cool visual interest underfoot. Then, going off the rug’s geometric lines, bring in Anthropologie’s Calo Side Table alongside the sofa. The grouping provides you with an instantly welcoming seating area in the living room.
Finally, to round out the space, bring in the Fuel Credenza from CB2 to serve as either a TV console (it comes with gaps for cords), a display surface for showing off your art, accents, and plants, or a closed bookcase that doubles as a bar on top. The beauty of this credenza is that it’s extremely versatile and the white lacquer adds simple polish and shine that works perfectly with the rest of the furnishings.
An Eclectic & Comfy Home Office
There’s nothing like having a workspace that makes you feel inspired, but more important, comfortable. You should feel at ease when you’re spending so much time at this desk spot in your home. Gathering some of our best finds, this home office space feels both eclectic and livable.
The white Mid-Century Desk from West Elm and the Eames chair from Design Within Reach set a modernist stage for the space. Pull in a Ivory Faux Cowhide from World Market to offset the bold lines of the chair and the desk.
Continuing with the modernist vibe, the Avalon Single Shelving from RHTeen is a sharp-looking bookcase that offers ample storage for books, files, and art. Meanwhile, its slender silhouettes is in keeping with the cool angular lines of the overall space.
A Glamorous & Inviting Bedroom
Create a fabulous bedroom retreat that’s as sophisticated as it is soothing with these glamorous finds that are big on style and texture. The Halo Bed from CB2 features a low base, white-cotton upholstery, and brass inlay that make it an inviting and showstopping centerpiece in any bedroom.
Anchor the foot of the bed with the Heathcote Brass-Tipped Bench from Anthropologie, which has dazzling metal legs that add to the shine of the bed’s inlay. The white bench also comes with cream stitched-leather upholstery that adds even more rich texture to the space. Take it even one step further with a Sheepskin Rug from Pottery Barn laid down on the floor below the dresser. After all, what’s a fabulous bedroom without a luxe, fluffy sheepskin to keep your feet soft and cozy, right?
To top of the bedroom, the Audrey Dresser from West Elm, with its retro-inspired appeal and eye-catching carved geometric facade, ushers in a touch of Hollywood Regency glamour. The antique brass-finished legs and hardware are details that provide extra sparkle and which tie back to the overall posh look of the space.
