Recently, we were given a great wingback chair. The chair has wonderful bones--so comfortable, great shape, and great condition. I just love it. One thing, the fabric is a little 90's jewel-toned-ish, but the chair is great. Really it is!
I'm finally starting to figure out my style--sort of. I don't know if I could write it out exactly, but I know what I like. With that said, I love the slip-covered look. I love the cottage-y feel when traditional meets comfort.
So...I measured my chair, looked at a bazillon different types of covers, and placed my order. The new cover fits nicely for a non-custom slip-cover. I'm pleased with the look. Until...
Until someone sits in it!
Seriously, it's held up great. It even falls back into place nicely. But for an OCD-ish, type-A, clean-freak like myself, it's a tad frustrating. Just a smidge.
I know it can't look perfect. That's not the look of a slip-cover. It's not in its nature.
It very rarely has to be re-tucked-which is a huge plus!
And I just love the way it brightens and softens up my living room.
I imagine how great it would look on dark wooden floors. A girl can dream.
So LOVE beats out hate. I love my slipcover!
What are your thoughts on slip-covers? Love them? Hate them?
