I bought the slipcovers to cover an overstuffed burgundy brocade sofa and love seat that were still in good condition but needed an update. I chose Antique and couldn't be more pleased with the color! I removed the skirts from my sofa and love seat and then applied the covers and was amazed at the difference, the sofa and love seat have a clean modern look now. The slipcovers allow plenty of room to stretch, yet fit the form of the sofa and love seat well. I also bought upholstery straight pins (T-pins) that can be found at discount or fabric stores and used them to pin the slipcovers up under the arms to give them a nice close fit resembling a custom made to fit look, and to pin any excess slipcover into a neat seamed look at the corners.The slipcovers also allowed enough material to tuck and pin under the front of the cushions to give them a two piece style slipcover look. My husband was amazed, he had been boycotting the idea of slipcovers because he didn't like how the arms and corner details of furniture lost their definition under slipcovers. Taking the time to use the T-pins made all the difference. I can't speak as to every day wear and tear with these slipcovers as mine are on living room furniture that is rarely sat upon, but for me they worked perfectly. These slipcovers are washable, another plus. The only negative thing I have to say about these is that the slipcovers do show some folding lines and creases from the packaging, although it may be less visible on the darker colors of the slipcovers. All in all, I highly recommend these!
