~ slip into spring



You know those magazines you stacked and stored and saved for years? The ones with dog-eared pages signifying a favorite something? Back in the days before Pinterest?  That is where this image was… saved for years in a pile. Dan Carithers did a piece on slipcovers and I saved this article for whatever reason for many years. 

Here's Carithers in the workshop...

I just love the details and charm associated with slipcovers on dining room chairs.


Joni Webb of Cote de Texas loves slipcovers. She uses them in her design projects and in her own home.











Carolyne Roehm just recently posted this photo of blue check slipcovers… pure charm!



This slipcovered couch was stunning in the home of Dan Carithers...

Suzanne Rheinstein covers her living room furniture with summer slipcovers...



So many details, so many options…
I am currently waiting for slipcovers I ordered for my dining room chairs.. I'll be excited to share them when they get here!

This is why I love Pinterest. Although sometimes I still find myself taking tearsheets!

Love all of these--one day I could do my D/R chairs??

Like the use of slipcovers ~ in fact, I have the seat covers of my D/R arm chairs and can move them around as extra pull-up chairs. My favorite style is the scalloped bottoms with tie-on bows in the back.

I really like the red check slip cover and that Geranium wall paper.
This is a fabulous post.
What a treat.
Thanks.

I love slipcovers! My Mother always had a set of cream color for the "summer wear" in the living room! Here, I have a young woman who actually comes to the house to do the cutting (just like the old days!) and then sews them at her shop. And they're always perfect….It's such a nice look, I agree.

I love the look of slip covers! Gorgeous! I think I need some for my sunroom chairs.
