Naked sofa

My sofas are about 14 years old, and from the day they arrived in this house I have always kept them well-covered. 

I could done the Cantonese thing and used thick clear plastic but I knew(from experience) that would not be comfortable...

So in the summer I'd cover them with cotton throws (until they disintegrated, when I replaced the throws with some awful navy blue covers), and in the winter I covered them with those furry synthetic single-bed-size bed covers  (one in gold, the other purple).



Yesterday I decided it was time to live with the sofas in their original colours, which is what I attracted me to them in the first place.

You're so funny. Have to admit tho they look in good nick for 14 years old! Do I still spy one of those headrests(to stop an oily head mark?) on the turquoise one tho?

if you keep 'em covered for 14 years that's what happens! The oily-head protection is in fact a souvenir from my travels in South America and I don't let anyone put their greasy body parts on it! Old habits die hard...
