Good Questions: Great Futon Slipcovers?

Good Questions: Great Futon Slipcovers?

Hello AT,

I hate futons. However, as a poor college student with limited space, a futon really was the most practical option. I tried to get the least futon-y one I could find, which meant an armless model with no frame. Despite my best efforts, it still screams "futon!" My question is: are there any slipcovers out there that might fit this microsuede monstrosity?...

It converts into a full-size bed, but the slipcover need not reflect this. If anyone could suggest a resource, it would be difference! Although inexpensive would be best, this would make such a huge difference I'd be willing to splurge a little bit (keep in mind a "splurge" for a college student is still not that much money. Also, this futon only cost $299, so it would be ridiculous to spend that much on an accessory for it). I promise to post pictures after I finish my cure. Thank you!


P.S.- I have gotten new pillows and painted the walls since taking this photo, so, while still undisputably ugly, it is now slightly less so.

Dear Samantha,

We dug down in our archives and came up with these good links:

Our archives (and search function) work well and are always worth a try first.

Anyone else?
