Turns out we're going to invest in a new sofa instead of slipcovering "Ol Red." It was actually my husband's idea, can you believe it? He's right, though. We bought it the year we got married at Storehouse (remember them?). It was upholstered in mattress ticking and fit with our decor for years. Then I got bold and had it reupholstered in red matelasse, but now that's starting to fade and I'm ready for a change. Here are some that I'm considering:
This last one from Pottery Barn is my front-runner right now. I LOVE nailhead trim and I really like how deep it is. Comfy! I'm thinking a beige linen upholstery.
I have a red matelasse couch that I am growing a bit tired of. It started out in gray and white mattress ticking years ago, and I had it reupholstered in the red, which I have loved, about 6 or 7 years ago. I'm ready for a change, but I want the option to go back to my beloved red at some point, so I'm thinking about having a slipcover made. Here are some great images that are giving me ideas, and maybe can for you, too. They're all courtesy of Cote de Texas blog. I might also update by going from 3 to 2 seat and back cushions, a slightly more current look. I'll post befores and afters when I get around to getting this accomplished!
