It is an exclusive collection of upholstery, wallpaper, pillows, rugs and home accents that are designed with B&L’s Life Friendly™ fabrics that resist stains and repel liquids (yes, even red wine!) and ultimately extend the life of your furnishings. All of our Life Friendly™ pieces have been tested and trusted by our team so you can feel confident putting them in your home!

Can I Order Life Friendly™ Pieces in Exclusive Brooke & Lou Prints?
Yes! We currently offer our exclusive Brooke & Lou prints on a variety of Life Friendly™ pieces including wallpaper, pillows, cushions and tablecloths. We are currently in the works of developing our exclusive prints onto Life Friendly™ materials for upholstery – couches, accent chairs, etc. so stay tuned!
p.s. – To clarify, you can still order Life Friendly™ upholstery – our current selection of fabrics includes beautiful neutrals, classic solids and non-exclusive prints.
How Do You Clean Life Friendly™ Fabrics?
With Life Friendly™ fabrics, you can say good-bye to stains and spills with our easy-to-clean materials. Cleaning methods will vary by product, but generally speaking, Life Friendly™ fabrics can be cleaned with something as simple as dish soap and water. Yes, really! Here’s a breakdown by item:
Upholstery – Accidentally spill your red wine? No problem! Grab a paper towel or a clean cloth, a glass of water, and some dish soap and gently dab the soiled area, avoiding excessive rubbing, and stains should lift.
Pillows – Similar to our upholstery, Life Friendly™ pillows can be cleaned with water and dish soap but they can also be thrown in the washing machine. Plus, they are also dryer-safe!
Wallpaper – Our Life Friendly™ wallpapers stand up to paint splats, muddy hands, and watermarks. Simply wipe clean with a damp cloth. If your walls could talk, they’d thank you.
Rugs – In addition to regular vacuuming, our Life Friendly™ rugs can be cleaned with soap and water.
What Are Your Team’s Favorite Life Friendly™ Pieces?
If we’re being honest, it’s too hard to choose! All of our Life Friendly™ pieces are a great investment for more reasons than one. Speaking for Bria, her home is filled with Life Friendly™ pieces – everything from wallpaper (installed in her dining room, laundry room, and all of the bedrooms!) and rugs to upholstery and pillows. If you’re curious about incorporating Life Friendly™ pieces into your home but aren’t quite ready to pull the trigger, we offer fabric and wallpaper samples in-store and online to help ease the decision-making process. However, a great way to start adding Life Friendly™ pieces into your home is with pillows. Almost everyone on our team owns a Brooke & Lou pillow combination! All of Brooke & Lou’s exclusive pillows are Life Friendly™ which means they’re easy to clean (machine washable!) and resist stains and spills – yes, please!
