Ok, give it to me straight: Do white slipcovers REALLY make sense when you have children and animals? We're going to be remodeling our basement into a playroom/rec room in the next couple of months and I'm beginning to gather ideas for couches and seating. I need a sofa bed because we are out of extra bedrooms and I keep coming back to the Ektorp sofa from Ikea:
The price is right at $650 and the slipcover can be washed and bleached. I'm not interested in investing more money in a better sofa because eventually it will have smelly teenagers sitting on it and just no. But does a white slipcovered sofa EVER make sense? Do any of you, dear Lushers, own such a sofa and can report about it's ease of cleaning and durability?
