I absolutely love the look of linen slip covers. How do they hold up? Are they a smart purchase for a house with kids?

Slipcovers are great in homes with kids of all ages and pets, as they are usually removable and washable. For extra protection on the arms, have your sewer make covers for the arms. They can be washed when the rest of the slipcover is OK. Be sure to test the washability of any fabric you choose.

All white/light design looks beautiful but definitely not designed for families in mind. I can't imagine what this would look like after two weeks in my home :-)
