LEXINGTON SLIPCOVERS 101
Slipcovers may have a reputation for being sloppy or ill-fitting, but we beg to differ. True to Lexington craftsmanship, the perfect fitting slipcover looks so polished you can’t tell it’s not a permanent part of the sofa. The fact that it’s removable means you can easily pop it off and take it to the cleaner’s or even swap it out for a completely different look.
This shabby-chic feel appeals well to a variety of styles and people from all backgrounds. Most may think slipcovers only fit in a particular place in the home or style of home. However, slipcovers can be lovely in a sunroom, in the main living area of a family room, a farm house or even as center piece in a penthouse! They come in a variety of styles: from deep sitting, to shallow, with rolled arms or the English/Charles of London arm (that’s in this photo) and even track arms.
Here at Hank’s, this is one of five true slipcover frames featured in our stores right now that you can browse and sit on. We have a sectional, a chofa (sofa with a chaise/ottoman– that can flip/flop to either side), and three sofa combinations from a variety of brands (ranging in price to fit all budgets).
This particular Lexington brand sofa and chair come standard with Ultra Down seat cushions for a luxurious and at the same time a casual/comfortable seat. There are colors to choose from on the body (at no upcharge). The colors are: Khaki (featured on frames in store), Cream (an off white), White (it’s bright white), and Gray (medium tone).
We have accented this beautiful Lexington sofa, chair and ottoman with a transitional rug, transitional table topper, and complimented it with modern line lamps for an eclectic look. However, you can make this same frame look very traditional or more contemporary by customizing the pillows and selecting your preferred style of complimentary accents.
The pillows really set the tone for “the look” you are going for and are of the utmost quality (filled with premium lux down). If you like variety, you will love choosing from literally hundreds of pillow fabrics. Some popular styles include Lexington’s nautical hues in their exclusive Tommy Bahama fabrics that add a beachy or relaxed vibe to the seaside home, lakeside home or sun room. They also have chenille and shimmering patterned pillow fabrics that can add a glamorous touch to your space. The more traditional pillow fabrics coordinate perfectly with similarly patterned traditional chairs and accents you may already have in your home. The geometrical and simple patterned pillow choices are perfect for any contemporary style space.
If you are obsessed with the occasional tables featured in this photo, let me tell you just how awesome they are! As described on Lexington’s website: The Oyster Bay Collection offers a casual transitional styling, by blending lighter wood tones, natural textures and relaxed shades of ivory, taupe and gray (matching most current paint schemes) with designs that represent comfortable and understated interpretation of luxe living. Designs in this group feature an eclectic mix of traditional elements like button-tufting, breakfront profiles and turned legs with more traditional features like geometric metal bases, burnished stainless steel top with accent nail trim and a ring motif used on the sides of the cocktail and end table.
