We bought these chair slipcovers to cover our stained seat covers. Be aware that the brown color is not as light as it seems in the photo -- it is a dark chocolate brown, which is fine. However, the covers sag on our chairs and will have to be pinned back to fit correctly. If you're looking for covers that have a bit of elasticity, like a sofa slipcover, look elsewhere. That being said, they are very soft and would look nice on a lot of different dining room chairs. I also like the size, as they don't drape over the entire chair but leave the legs exposed.
