I like to think of slipcovers are new clothing for my furniture. Some slipcovers are made to fit so they have to be custom ordered but a lot come in more of a loose fitting style that is made to fit with ties and ribbon ties.
There has been a renewed interest by the interior design industry and the popularity of a more casual design and saving money over replacing furniture. A looser fitting style allows the covers to better fit more pieces of furniture.
