White fabric has been feared by designers such as myself for as long as I can remember. I have memories of my sweet Nana opening her doors to her grandchildren whenever we wanted but, there was one rule that I will remember to this day:
Do not sit on the white sofas.
Nana still has those brilliant white sofas, and they are as bright as ever. To this day, 20 years later, I am still terrified to be the first person to put a stain on that fabric I swore that I would never have sofas in my house that my kids weren’t allowed to sit on (I lied).
For the first time in my career, I have found a solution and am able to bringing white upholstery into clients’ homes…
I was first sold on Crypton when I attended High Point Market in 2016. I saw this demonstration showing the fabric’s durability. The demonstration was unbelievable, I asked the woman to repeat it to share with you.
This fabric is like a magic party trick.
I find myself begging my guests to spill red wine on my white upholstery just to show them my magic fabric.
My favorite thing about this new technology is that just about every fabric brand and upholstery line I work with offers a Crypton line. They have started covering their furniture with this magical fabric and making my little interior design dreams come true.
