The way I see it, you have two options for slipcovered furniture. 1) Pottery Barn. 2) IKEA.
I love (really love) the Pottery Barn Comfort sofa. When they say comfort, they mean it. But, I don't love the price tag. It's not so much the cost of the sofa, which is reasonable at $999, but it's the cost of the replacement slipcovers. I could pretty much buy a new sofa.
And then there is IKEA... They have alot of covers to choose from and lucky us, the white is the least expensive. At $49 for a sofa cover, I could just skip washing and put a new cover on. (Does that qualify as being earth friendly? I am saving water after all). And if they don't have a cover that fits your fancy, there are two companies I have found that create custom covers specifically for IKEA furniture.
I ordered some fabric swatches from Bemz (you can get 5 for free) and LOVE their 100% linen. I could totally get an IKEA sectional sofa (less than $1,000) and give it a custom look with a pure linen cover.
So ... you know what I'll be sketching and planning this weekend. A sectional sofa that 2 bulldogs, Mr. CV and I can kick back and relax on.
Have a fabulous weekend!!!
