Finding a Slipcover

I am searching for either a slipcover or new cushion for a Papasan chair. They have a circular shape (including the seat) and have wicker bottoms. I would like to use this chair with an existing navy blue sofa (twine colored edge). Any ideas?. --iVillager nykathy


We have several ideas that may work for your chair. If you are not a seamstress, you can always purchase a twin size fitted sheet to act as a slipcover. Since the chairs are casual, it doesn't need to be a perfect fit. (The fitted sheet will allow for a more formidable fit then a flat sheet.)

This may sound crazy, but you may want to consider purchasing a large slip cover for a dog bed through companies like L.L. Bean or Cuddledown to fit over your cushion (the dimensions will be listed in the catalogue or on their website). Actually, the patterns and prints for dog beds can be simple and somewhat sophisticated.

If you opt to buy a new cushion, Pier One Imports always carries them. Our final idea is to jazz the chair up with pillows. It's amazing how pillows in different sizes and textures can improve or change the look of a chair, couch or bed.
