Hmmmm....

Brown to white would leave you with unsatisfactory results - at best!

Get them recovered. If you had said that you wanted to go from brown to navy or brown to burgandy.... perhaps.

If you 'paint them' white (redye), you will be left with cracking and creasing over the years that will show up brown - it will also be really hard to cover the brown and look uniformly white. Too big of a color change.

Hope that helps.
