Is the wingback slipcover a linen? Love the contrasting piping.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Fancy yourself something of a bibliophile? Turn a stack of your sturdier books into a side table.

Nor this color-coordinated slipcovered wingback.

The height of a lamp is important: It works best at eye level when you’re sitting down. If your lamp seems too low, build a stand from extra books — add and remove until the height is just right.
A stack of sturdy books makes a fine occasional table.
Stain treatment. Once you detect a stain, don’t delay. “The quicker you get to it, the better,” says Mike Hiatt, general manager of D.A. Burns & Sons in Seattle. An over-the-counter enzyme-based cleaner like Nature’s Miracle can neutralize urine stains, and it doesn’t need to be rinsed out, unlike the usual treatments for odor-causing stains.If the stain is confined to the surface of the furniture, you can try daubing it lightly with a white cotton cloth dipped in warm to hot water and wrung out. You could also use a solution of 10 percent white vinegar and 90 percent water, or combine a teaspoon of mild liquid detergent with 2 cups of water.
