So Jen, this is for you an anyone else looking to slipcover some chairs. Image: Atlanta Bartlett
To update my client's dining room, we are planning to slipcover the two dining chairs and the ends of the table. This will change the look of the room by lightening it with the white fabric and adding more texture to the room.
I love the "slipcover" above because it is loose and informal...I think even sexy. I write "slipcover" because I think she just draped & tied a sheet around the chair.
Here is another loose cover.
I really like these because they are sleek and straight, with only one pleat on the bottom.

I think the straight cover will work best in their dining room, as opposed to ruffled covers (like Windsor Smith's design here)
these are sweet and very French
like these English Cottage ones...just not for them (via Cabbages & Roses)
We are planning to monogram the backs of the slipcovers...their initial with a crown above it.

I think this will be our best option--a long, simple and mostly straight slipcover...either in white cotton duck, linen blend or denim (bleach!!) I would like to see the skirt just kissing the floor.
I am a big fan of slipcovers. They are cost-effective because you can repurpose a good, old piece of furniture and they last a while because you can pull it off, unzip them and throw them in the wash!
I'll leave you with this today--Julie
