Reader request – slipcovered sofas

Posted on Thu, 17 Feb 2011 by KiM

Today’s reader request is from Bonnie: i saw the ‘casually draped sofas‘ but i was wondering about slipcovered sofas. can they be chic? i have very young kids and i love white and cream sofas. dilemma. so i’m thinking my only options are leather or slipcovered sofas? am i right? can you do an entry on this? thanks. I have cats not kids so I’m no expert on sofas that are kid-friendly but I think your best options would be as you mentioned, slipcovered or leather. I think you should go for a white slipcovered one – that way you can throw the cover in the wash with some bleach if the kids decide to dump a glass of fruit juice draw you some pictures on it. Below are some photos mostly of white slipcovered (at least they look like it) sofas with a few cream ones and a couple dark colours thown in for the hell of it. Hope this helps!

I have gotten a few reader requests lately having to do with televisions and how to decorate around them and make them less of an eye-sore. There are all sorts of ideas below – hide it within built-in shelving, wallpaper the wall behind it (or paint it black), place it on top of a hot pink credenza as a distraction, hang art around it (like I did)…..and at the end of the post is an example of what NOT TO DO.

Alistair Graham, creative director of the new, small, yet highly creative interior design company Studio Public in the UK sent us a little taste of his latest project. A seaside getaway for a city couple. Can you imagine soaking in that tub? Not to mention that shower! It’s a fabulous sleek minimal interpretation with a restrained luxury. The perfect getaway within your getaway.

P.S. The photo of the sea scene is an artwork printed to the glass screen dividing the bath and walk in shower!
