I have never ordered slipcovers and have never been a fan of them. But my friend re-decorated and offered me her loveseat and chair for free. They were quite well loved but hey...they were free!! She told me that she had tried to donate them but no one would take them since there was a tear in the fabric although she thought with slipcovers they would be quite nice. Once she mentioned that idea I thought of my new house and how I still hadn't decorated the large landing on the second floor. I had recently bought a 6x9 area rug from Overstock for my living room and had moved the much larger area rug to the landing knowing it would look great there plus the 6x9 rug was great to showcase the gorgeous wood floors for spring and summer in my living room. (I love both rugs, thanks O!!) But I had still not decorated the landing and it looked empty so I took my friend up on her well loved furniture. I decided to look into slipcovers and was a bit taken back by the price, even on O. But then I found these and the price was right!!! I really wanted the blue ones but they were out of stock so I bought the champagne. I love that name which sounds so much nicer than cream, lol. So now here comes the review of the slipcovers....First of all the price to slipcover a loveseat and chair was only $XX! How great is that? So for the money I spent I love these slipcovers. The design is pretty, color is same as on website and I like the pattern. One of the reviews said it was like upholstery material and I disagree. It isn't that heavy but it is a nice weight and soft. As for how they look on....well I think they are designed for a larger style chair and loveseat (mine are on the smaller size) so there was a lot of excess material. At first I thought that was going to be an issue but I just tucked it all in and except for a little section on the arms it looks fine. One person listed they spent 1.5 hours adjusting the slipcovers but seriously...unless you are anal these both went on in about 20 minutes. If you are fussy and a perfectionist I doubt you should be buying slipcovers because you can't get them to look like the website but they still look nice. We don't plan to sit on these much so I can't comment on how much adjusting they might need. I do know that for the money I am thrilled! They have a few wrinkles that I didn't bother to iron out and I'm still pleased. I think all I need to do is get some pretty pillows and I'll be all set.
