Slipcovers are an easy way to update and give character to an existing chair or sofa.  They are easier to maintain as they can be removed and washed.  Just be careful not to shrink the fabric if it was not pre-washed before production.  Washing the fabric before production will give a more relaxed, softer look.  Slipcovers will create an elegant and casual feel to a room.  While kick-pleats, ties, tape and trim will add a touch of detail, a simple cover will look great when it is done correctly.  Here are some of the slipcovers I keep on file..

I love how the ties and the skirt look like a couture-fitted dress..

I like the two-piece, tailored slipcover here. It works better for the shape and scale of these chairs..

A shorter skirt here fore a more casual look..

These tailored slipcovers show off the finials of the chair..

A French-style pleated skirt and ottoman..

Slipcovers for more contemporary chairs..

A simple slipcovered sofa..

I love the fabric added on the skirt here. A tape would work as well..

Love the ties hanging on the padded arms..

This chair is beautifully done with the ties over the flat back and the perfect length on the kick-pleated skirt..
