A white sofa can add a beautiful, elegant, and especially bright element to your living room design. A white couch has a simple and crisp appearance that is neutral as well, meaning it’s easy to combine with other furniture pieces and accessories in your home decor.

Take a look at the white couch living room ideas below to gather inspiration on how to style and decorate white sofas depending on which color palette and wall color you are working with.

White sofas need a bit more care than their darker variants, so opting for washable covers might be more suitable when you live with children or prefer eating on the couch.

The bright white living room furniture and the beautiful white texture on the area rug stand out against the beige living room walls with a red undertone. The green fiddle fig tree next to the white couch finishes this neutral look nicely and adds a fresh touch to the decor.

Living rooms with green walls combined with bright white couches or sleeper sofas

The bold, darker green paint color in this living room is balanced out by a light palette in the textiles and soft furnishings. White sofas tend to balance out darker living rooms, especially when paired up with a large white area rug and neutral colors in the accessories.
