Good Questions: Stylish Futon Cover Tips?

Maxwell Ryan

Hello AT,

It seems that futon covers are made for the homes of Russian mobsters in Brighton Beach, i.e., as ugly and expensive as a Cosby sweater. Any ideas for where I might find an attractive futon cover for $100 or less? I am not interested in just solid twill, which looks too "dorm room" to me. I am hoping to find something with texture that makes my futon look like as much like a stylish and professional couch (this is for seeing therapy patients) as a futon possibly can...

I am attaching a pic of the room it's going in, which I am doing in a kind of West-Elmy organic twigs-and-faux bois kind of look. (P.S. I got the idea for framing paint chip strips from AT!)

Thanks! Jack
