Loose couch covers

Ho hum. I am having a few couch dilemmas at the moment. I need two new ones but not sure what to do. We have a naughty cat who is scratching the daylights out of one that was recovered a few years back and the other isn't bad - I just hate the print so I have covered it with a off white canvas couch cover. Also with little vegemite fingers, do we take the plunge or wait a few years? Everyone says go leather but I am afraid I am a bit of a fabric girl. Anyhow, here a few nice photos of very loose covers (almost throws) on couches. Mine is the one at the bottom.

No point in waiting I say go for a couch with slipcovers anyday of the week. I had some slipcovers made ten years ago from white denin and they are still going strong. I sold them to a friend and she loves them. All my lounge suites are slipcovers. Ikea or handmade. You can always bleach the white ones and bring them back to like new again. The ikea ektop is affordable and whats better is you can change the covers to suit the seasons. Yes the white ones do get dirty but you have to expect that. Don't do the leather go the slipcovers.

Thanks Sandy. I agree. I've always liked the Ikea ektop and the price is so cheap yet the look so effective.

I have always been in love with white spaces & you have so much white...I am in decorating heaven just browsing around your blog.

Will be back often to get a regular fix.

About 3 weeks ago I picked up a gorgeous cover for my lounge from our local charity shop..It's a heavy linen and I love it..Fabric over leather any day..

I think couch covers are a great idea and in fact, I really like the homely, warm, cosy look and feel they crete. Love that first image :)
