This slipcover was exactly what I had expected. The color was a great match to what was posted online, and it was easy to put onto my couch. It's as soft as they say - very comfortable to sit and lie on. I washed it once before putting it on, but it's got a faint smell that doesn't go away after a single wash. It's hard to describe the smell, but it's pretty distinct and I think it's common to a lot of chenille items. I would recommend washing this a couple times before using it.
