White House “Designs for Life” is a family of home furnishings stores, interior design services, and non-profit initiatives.


Since 1982, White House “Designs for Life” has been transforming thousands of homes in the New York / New Jersey area. With an incredible selection of home furnishings, a team of professional designers, and two beautiful showrooms in northern New Jersey, our mission is to create and enhance the spaces that define your lifestyle.


At White House, design is not just about unique furniture and decoration – it’s about how these elements transform a space into something special. With experience coordinating and managing projects of all scales, we believe that great interior design is more than just visually enhancing one’s space – its about connecting people with their homes.

Our mission is to create and enhance the spaces that define your lifestyle.

In this time when all that matters to most companies is the bottom line, our philosophy is different. At White House, it’s all about people, quality of life, and making a difference.

Proudly Supporting American Manufacturers

For over thirty years, we’ve built our reputation on offering the finest quality products, the most educated and talented staff to assist with selections, and our own professional delivery teams to safely place your new furnishings in your home.

With the influx of inferior, inexpensive furnishings from places like China, American manufacturers are struggling to stay in business. We make every effort to source from American companies to help keep our fellow Americans working. We believe buying local keeps our neighbors employed. For us at White House, it’s not about the bottom line, it’s about doing the right thing.
