Slipcovers have many uses. They can be used to freshen up an old piece, even changing the style, or they can have a more utilitarian use, by being washable. Some people use them to change-up the room depending on the season, and some just want a quick change of style. A slipcover can mean many different things to different people. Some think of them as something to just throw on a piece of furniture to protect it, and some think of it as a more permanent item, meant to stay on and not have to be fussed with every time you get on and off the furniture. This is the type of slipcovers I fabricate. Many people actually have to look closely to realize it is a slipcover.
