Slipcovering

I have always loved the look of a good white slipcover. A slipcover adds a casual laid back look to a piece of furniture. Most people see slipcovers as just a sheet that is thrown over an upholstered piece of furniture.  Oh no. They can be so much more.  This post was inspired by this picture from yesterday’s post on cabins:

How cute are those blue slipcovers on those Louis XVI style chairs with the TIES?!?!?  These chairs prove that a slipcover doesn’t have to be a white sheet on a club chair. You can get creative with slipcovers. Ideally, you would want to have them custom made for a piece of furniture, but there are lots of decent slipcovers out there from Pottery Barn, Ballard Design, even Target.

Hands down, the BEST thing about a slipcover? You can put them in the washing machine (or take them to a dry cleaner)! Therefore, they will last longer. Just another reason to make the investment to have them custom made.

 

 I’m IN LOVE with the slipcovers on the chairs below.  Louis XVI chairs with scalloped skirts?  Yes, please!

And last but not least…

Suzanne Kasler designed the unique slipcovers above.  I love them.  They’re so creative with their shape and contrast green piping and ties.  And they really add a casual feel to the otherwise formal dining room.
