Q: I just got a very cool old couch for free on craigslist. Unfortunately, the fabric, while cool, doesn't go with the colors in my apartment. I can't afford to re-upholster it right now, so I want to buy a slipcover. So here's the question: can I use a standard slipcover and still preserve the very cool shape of this couch?
The back is slightly obscured by the pillows in the picture, but it's got a lovely curved dip, and I like the arms' shape as well. I also want the feet to remain visible. I'm looking at these slipcovers from JC Penney. Does anyone have experience fitting something similar? And if not, what other options could I consider?
