My recliner is about 6 years old; however, we didn't use it much so it was in perfect shape. I decided to mmove it to a room where it could be used but the red color did not match the room. I purchased this slipcover after reading all the other good reviews and I was not disappointed at all. I was a bit concerned because the chair is very wide. But this slipcover strecthes with ease and covers the chair perfectly. Much better than buying a new recliner. I have another red recliner that I intend to put in another bedroom and if the color does not match, i will certainly check out this site again and see what other colors it has to offer.
