I ordered this slip cover for a chair-and-a-half that has a muted plaid pattern. It fit just fine, with plenty of room to cover my chair, since I ordered the loveseat size, but I was disappointed that I could slightly see the pattern of the chair fabric below. If you're covering a light, solid fabric, this is a great deal. But I wouldn't recommend it for anything other than a light fabric.
I had been looking for a heavier-duty slipcover for a loveseat that I planned to give to my son & family. There was nothing wrong with the original upholstery on the loveseat, but it was plaid and did not fit well in my son's living room. This cover was VERY DIFFICULT to iron as it arrived in a very compact, folded manner. After less than 2 months, I decided to launder it, hoping that it would shrink a little. However, after it was laundered and put back onto the loveseat, the seams pulled apart in critical places. Since the item cannot be returned, I will not have to remove it AGAIN and try to machine stitch it, so that it won't completely fall apart. The fabric is still in good condition, but the quality of the workmanship was VERY POOR!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? OK
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality was VERY poor, due to the construction of the product
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? I don't recall
I needed a slipcover for an extra large family room chair and the loveseat size cover fits (not great but better than nothing!). It did involve a lot of tucking in because it is a super large chair and not a loveseat but I expected that. My problem with this cover is that it is super thin (does seem to cover the red in the chair though) and dust and fur seems to cling and collect on it. I'm constantly washing it and thankfully it does stand up for a lot of washings. I recommend this only because of the price and it seems to work on my chair. For the price, it's a good deal but if you are looking for something more substantial and attractive, this one is not for you. For example, if this was for a living room chair (in my home, more decorative), I would not purchase it but for a family room that gets a lot of use, it works great.
Arrived much sooner than "delivery date." Chose white, so color accurate. Wanted to freshen room; mission accomplished. Other reviews accurate. Material much thinner than expected; can see through. Fit easily and tucked nicely for a smooth fit. Well constructed. Added a rugby stripe throw and shag pillow for a "beach" look - did the trick.
I bought the natural color, and the texture is very plain, so I put a throw over part of the loveseat to make it look a little nicer. The fabric seems to brush off pretty easily. I had no problems putting it on, and it's a reasonably good fit for my loveseat. It's pretty basic, but it seems to work. Putting rolled-up magazines in the crevices really helps keep it in place - wish I'd done that with my last slipcover.
It has totally stopped our cat from scratching the loveseat. We'll remove the cover in a few weeks or months to see if this change in behavior is permanent. The cover looks quite good, though it takes some time after each sitting to make sure it continues to look neat. The color was exactly as shown in the photo. It survived our first washing with no detectable deterioration. It's a very good solution to your cat scratching problem, assuming that your cat does not take to scratching the cover. Even if he does, you'll buy some time for your loveseat/couch.
On the plus side, the material this is made out of seems to be sturdy (although it is not what I think of when I think cotton duck, it is a bit more lightweight than that) and the quality of the sewing seems to be decent (straight seams etc). That said, this cover is just HUGE. We bought it to cover the Serta Trinidad couch and loveseat we purchased from Overstock at the same time, to protect them from animal hair and claws for everyday use. We knew from the measurements it would be a little larger than the couch, but figured with some creative tucking and maybe the pool-noodle trick we could make it work reasonably well. In fact, it's so huge that there is just no way to make it look neat on our smaller couch. We've tried all kinds of tucking and folding and the way the arms are designed and the ties are placed means it inevitably bunches and bags somewhere. It also arrived very, very wrinkled- we didn't bother ironing it but I imagine that it would be a task, since it's a thick, stiff fabric and an awkward shape. It's not a deal breaker for us, since we just wanted it to keep our new couches nice and always intended to take it off for company. But if you're buying this intending to use it to refresh the look of an old couch, take very careful measurements- if it seems like it will be way too big, pass. It would probably be cute in kind of a shabby-chic way on a bigger couch, but for a smaller couch, it's just sloppy-looking. You could achieve a similar look with a bed sheet much cheaper.
The final result of this slip cover is satisfactory. It looks nice (although I can see the stripes of the original pattern through the fabric) and is an improvement. However, this 100% cotton product arrived scrunched up in the tiniest of parcels resulting in the most wrinkled piece of fabric I've ever seen. There was no way I could have used it without the hour of ironing I spent. I would not have purchased this product had I known how much effort was required. Washing it will also be a major chore.
I was so excited to finally cover this dead ugly loveseat we've been stuck with for almost a year. I find a great deal- this 'stone gray' cotton casual fit slipcover. Perfect! I get it in a reasonable amount of time (although the matching one for my couch is a week yet to come) and it is not even close to the grey blue pictured. I'd call it dark teal. I mean, no greyish ting at all. So, I can deal with that-it's better than what I had before, right? Jury is still out on that one. It looks like the sheet I had on the couch to begin with, just much much bigger. I'd say this fits poorly, although when measuring the loveseat it came in near the larger part of what the slipcover should cover. Tucking and adjusting and rolling and pulling and it still looks like one big frump. I certainly hope that the couch version fits better, or I'm going to be pulling out the sewing machine. I am happy to say that the fabric looks very durable and the cotton and weave look breathable. Both the fabric and stitching look like they should hold up. I'm certainly not as happy as the lady in the instructions pictures, but for a one size fits all cover I shouldn't have been too excited to begin with.
We bought a loveseat cover and a couch cover for some quick staging of a house on the market. The couch cover is really good, the loveseat cover does the job but is rather oversized for our even our bulky loveseat. Just means more tucking in and pillows to hide the mult layers of fabric in the corners! We washed everything first and all good.
The fabric is more coarse and open weave than the cotton duck slipcovers I have ordered before. They do serve the purpose of protecting the furniture for a reasonable cost. I have two cats that shed very badly during the summer and it is easy to get these covers on and off so they can be washed often.
Since I was not a fan of slip covers, I was less than enthusiastic when this one arrived. This seemed the best solution to protect a love seat from a visiting pet. Unwrapping it, I was pleased with the quality of the material. When I put it on (far easier than I thought it would be), it fit well and looked good. Sitting on it did not rumple it which really surprised me. At the end of the weekend visit, it looked just as good as the day I put it on. Great solution for a quick and easy style makeover too!
This was the first time I ordered from Overstock.... I ordered both the sofa and love seat slipcovers. I was nervous, as to whether they would really fit like the picture depicted. They fit perfectly- and look great in the spare room. This is a great alternative to buying new furniture. I ordered additional slipcovers today for two chairs. I recommend giving them a try.
