Slipcovers. If you’re hesitant about committing to a fabric or need to clean your wingback chairs more often, slipcovers are always a great option. (Just ask kitty here.) A contrasting piping in the slipcover accentuates the serpentine form of the chair underneath here, while a contrasting band at the bottom helps ground it.

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.

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.
