Brighten up any room
on July 9, 2013
Purchased this to cover my old beige sofa. The throw covers it well enough for me. I already knew it was going to be on the short side since my sofa is about 94-96" wide (arm to arm). The item could be a bit wider (front to back). It does not cover the full back drop. With a bit of adjusting here and there I can fix so that it covers most of the sofa. any uncovered part is either to the wall or has a table cover it. As shown in the photo here it goes all the way to the floor on the front, if you work with it you can set it up a tad higher in the front to have it drop further in the back. It works well enough for me. The color is lovely. My sofa was a beige and the color is a wonderful change.
The great thing about this cover if that it washes up. I have a dog and cat and even though the fur will collect and show over time a quick wash normally does the trick. Suggestion to air dry first to get off most of the fur before actually washing.
one neg. is that like most all covers/throws it will move over time with people getting up and down. I don't suggest using pin to control this but maybe ( I have not done this) just maybe Velcro would work or help. I just let it do its thing and just adjust it as needed. For me it is not that big of a deal and expected movement to happen anyways. if you want no movement in the item look towards a fitted cover and not a throw. I like this for the ease of tossing it on, pulling off, and quick washes.
**REMEMBER when measuring** your sofa/couch measure to the outter most edge (left to right) and add on the measurement to the floor both sides for the over all length. Then measure from the floor up (leg area) front, the seat up the back over and down to the floor for the complete width. Add on a few inches for tucking the item into cushions.
Hope this helps a few of you in chosing the size you need.
