Versailles
Verso Versailles E-Reader Cover for Kindle Fire
By LightWedge

Compared to damask, blue jeans and red lipstick are babies in the pantheon of true classics. One of the five basic patterns of the Islamic and Byzantine weaving centers of the early middle ages, for over 1000 years, everyone from kings to paupers have adorned themselves and their environments with variations of it.

These days, you’ll see it commonly produced in mono-color silks and linens, featuring floral, fruit, and other organic motifs. But for the damask-inspired Verso Versailles e-reader cover, we decided to fire up the way-back machine to 14th century France when damask was more about interesting and decorative shapes…while integrating an edgy modern aesthetic.

The result: a transformation of your e-reader from techie gadget to versatile stylish accessory…one you’ll be happy to show off on your daily commute, no matter who’s in the next seat over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tight fit for a Kindle Fire December 16, 2011
Verified Purchase
I bought this cover for my Kindle Fire, and I love it. As another reviewer mentioned, it does fit quite tightly in the bands, and I wasn't sure if it would fit at all when I first tried to put my Kindle in it. However, it does fit. The cover does have a slight manufactured smell to it, but mine is not as bothersome as the other reviewer's smell. Also, a bonus that I did not expect from only seeing the picture is the textured material. I was expected a smooth fabric feel, but it is a little rough and seems very durable. It feels like the rough fabric covering you can find on old books. The binding is not real leather, but it doesn't look cheap. I also wasn't expecting the enclosure band that holds the whole thing together. I've seen these bands on journals before, but never a cover for a reader, but I really like it because it holds the cover closed tightly when I'm not using my Kindle. The inside fabric is very soft like moleskin, and I was surprised at the quality of the materials used. Overall, this product exceeds my expectations, and I'm very happy with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty decent case December 10, 2011
Verified Purchase
I recently purchased this case for my Kindle Fire. The description says that it is certified for the Kindle, however the packaging reveals it is for any e-reader. The case is sturdy and I appreciate the material of the cover. The fire is a tight fit in the case. It does fit in the elastic bands, but you have to really push it in. Once it is in though it is tightly secured and I feel like it will not come out. The only thing that bothers me about the case is the smell. I have had it for approximately two weeks and the case does have a strong manufactured smell to it. I am sure that will go away with time, but for now it is bothersome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect! December 29, 2011
By jjlarue
Verified Purchase
After reading the other two reviews about this being a bit tight for the Kindle Fire, I decided to order it for my Kindle touch, which is about .5" shorter and it fits perfectly! It is a really nice quality case - sturdy and feels more expensive than it is. I love the elastic band that keeps it closed. I did not notice any smell unless I held it right up to my nose. Like the other reviewer said, the cover is actually textured like a nice, thick fabric. All in all a beautiful case at a great price - I couldn't be happier.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice cover December 26, 2011
By Mike B.
Verified Purchase
The only 2 flaws this cover has is that it does not provide a dedicated opening for a stylus and it could use an anti-slip around the edge of the cover to allow it to stand on smooth surfaces such as a desk or table.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutly thrilled with this case January 14, 2012
Verified Purchase
After receiving the Kindle Fire for Christmas this past year I found the need to purchase a case to protect it. After looking through the available products, I decided that this Verso Versailles case was the perfect one for me. I read the reviews and saw that many thought it was a tight fit (which is is) and that it has a strong chemical smell (which is does). But even taking those two factors into account, this was the best purchase that I could make. The case protects the Kindle Fire screen and while the fit is tight, it makes it feel more secure and less likely to fall out. One other benefit I found with this case is you can stand it up so that your Kindle is propped up - great for reading at lunch when you don't want to hold it in your lap. Yes, it does take a little maneuvering but it can happen. One thing I was disappointed in is the strong chemical smell when you first take it out of the package but I fixed this real quick. A large zip lock bag and four bounce dryer sheets, wrap tightly and let sit for twelve hours and now it's dryer fresh - note DON'T PUT IT IN THE DRYER! The design is exactly as pictured and it does have a pocket on the inside - a great place to store coupons or an extra dryer sheet! All in all I am thrilled with this case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clip on your stylis! January 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
The beautiful material is firm and fits beautifully over my kindle fire. I started using a stylis, and I can clip it to the elastic band between the kindle top and the cover. The stylis rests flush across the top.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just what I was looking for January 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
I just got my Verso Versailles Cover for my Kindle Fire. I read the other reviews prior to purchase. The cover does have a "new" smell to it, I dont mind it, and cant smell it unless I put my nose to the cover. My Kindle Fire fit perfectly into the cover, it took me no time at all to fit it in. I do have to say in the picture it looks whiter than the one I got, which was more off-white, kind of matches my cream couches. Hopefully with it being off-white it will hide dirt better. Also, if I fold the cover inside out, (on a non-slick surface), the cover props up my kindle for me, for when I want to watch movies or something. Overall great product. I would recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great item! December 29, 2011
Verified Purchase
This case is great! Very easy to use and also has a tight little pocket on the inside for whatever.

The only thing is the smell, which smells like gasoline to me. I'm sure it will dissipate in time. Over all, well worth it.
