One important piece, that I believe is necessary in every lake home, is a slipcovered sofa. The idea that you can change the look of the sofa by simply changing the slipcover makes the investment that much easier! Many people fear that they will fall out of love with the fabric they choose for their sofas, but there is no need to worry with a slipcover as you can change it whenever you please. Robin Bruce, a line provided by Scott Shuptrine Interiors, has a variety of fabric options to create many different interchangeable combinations throughout the years.
Another thing that people often worry about is stains. I absolutely love the look of a white sofa in a cottage, and a slipcover sofa is extremely easy to wash when life happens. Robin Bruce offers slipcover fabrics that are pre-washed and come in an array of colors and patterns.
Escaping to the cottage should not include pillow fluffing, which makes the shabby-chic look of these sofas even more enticing. Slipcovers are definitely designed to hang loosely and appear a little relaxed. With a few soft karate chops to the pillows, you are put back together in no time.
We would love to help you freshen up your summer home, so that you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful summers that we have in the mitten state!
