Yes, You Can Have a White Sofa and Keep It Clean

How to Style the La-Z-Boy Collins Sofa

You picture your perfect living room with a crisp white sofa with the natural sunlight shining through the room. Beautiful throw pillows to match your style. It’s almost like a page out of a magazine. 

A white sofa can be such a beautiful and timeless piece of furniture in your living room. 

Then your mind snaps back to reality. 

You see the kids run in with goldfish-stained fingers heading straight for the sofa. The dog got into the neighbor’s flower bed again. Now with mulch in his paws, he is finding a comfortable place to lay beside you. You’re hosting a dinner party and someone spills red wine across the backrest.

You could play hundreds of those scenarios that have happened in your home over the past few years. You think, unfortunately, a white sofa is just a dream for your home.

At La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings & Décor, our galleries display beautiful living rooms that you can make a reality. We’ve heard the compliments of a beautiful creamy light-colored sofa immediately followed by “I could never.” 

We’ve been bringing dreams of picturesque living rooms to life for years by helping customers pick the right fabric and protection plans for their furniture.

If you’ve written off the thought of sitting on white or lightly covered fabric, hang tight.

In this article, we’ll address what you’ll need in order to have the furniture you’ve always wanted without hesitation. With these must-haves, you’ll be able to shop with the confidence knowing that you can have a living room fit for a magazine.  

Must-Have # 1: Durable Fabric

You might think that having durable fabric is a no-brainer when it comes to furniture, but not all fabric is created equally. Most people are tough on furniture and you want a fabric that will hold up through everyday use.

There are many durable fabric options when it comes to furniture. You should look for fabrics that offer the most durability without sacrificing comfort. These fabrics include leather, microfiber, cotton, and linen. 

In this video podcast, we address some of the most durable furniture fabric options. 

When shopping for your furniture, be sure to ask your sales associate what type of testing their fabrics go through.

At La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings & Décor, all of our fabrics are put through a testing procedure rated two times the industry standard. Torturous machines stretch, pummel and pound our fabrics repeatedly to test them for the highest level of durability.

Must-Have # 2: Pre-Treated Fabric

The best way to put your mind at ease is to prevent stains before they even happen. Hovering over your children, covering your furniture in plastic, and worrying about spills and stains can drive you insane. Accidents happen and furniture is meant to be lived on.

Nowadays there are stain-resistant treatments that can be applied to the fabric. 

La-Z-Boy iClean Fabric provides an invisible barrier of protection that will repel spills before they even turn into stains. 

iClean Fabric repels both liquids (soda, coffee, and wine) and non-liquid (dirt, ketchup, and magic marker) spills.

Not only does iClean Fabric keep your furniture clean. It also looks and feels good too.

iClean Fabric is soft-to-the-touch and feels great to sit on. This special formula delivers the luxurious feel and exceptional comfort you expect out of La-Z-Boy.

This video below will teach you all about the benefits of iClean by La-Z-Boy to give you the experience you deserve. 

Must-Have # 3: Fabric Protection & Treatment Plan

It’s important to take every precaution to prevent stains, but some spills aren’t always as easy to clean. 

That’s where the last piece of the pie comes into play. With a customized treatment plan and warranty, you have the added help of professionals.

Knowing what to do in the event of a hard-to-clean spill can make all the difference. 

At La-Z-Boy Home Furnishings & Décor, we know life happens. We work with you to prepare you for these instances by reviewing protection plans and additional treatment options.

When purchasing furniture online or through a bulk distributor, you may miss out on this coverage or not fully understand your options. The best way to maximize this benefit is to work with a consultant in-store to make sure your needs are met. 

Buy Your Dream Furniture & Keep It Clean

Whoever said you can’t have your cake and eat it too must have spilled red velvet cake on their white sofa. Furniture is meant to be lived in. And that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your dream living room to keep it clean and functional. 

With the right protection and treatment plans in place, you can have the living room of your dreams without the constant fear of spills and stains. 

At La-Z-Boy, we know we can’t stop your family from making messes, but we can put your mind at ease. We’d be happy to help you customize your new furniture at any of our locations in NC, SC, and GA.
