I have never owned a slipcovered sofa and I am not sure that I ever will . I think all of the examples above look great but whenever I see slipcovered sofas in person they usually look like a wrinkled mess ! I know they have a reputation for being so practical since you can wash them, but I'm not convinced . Do you have to iron them to get them to look that neat and tailored ? If so, that doesn't sound very practical to me . I actually think a wrinkled, sagging slipcover bothers me more than a small stain on a tailored sofa ever would . And putting covers back on cushions is just not fun . What do you think ? Do you or would you own a slipcovered sofa ? Are they practical and easy or are you constantly tugging them back in to place and smoothing out the wrinkles ?
