My York Pottery Barn White Slipcovered Sofa – FAQ

My York Pottery Barn White Slipcovered Sofa - FAQ

I‘ve had my for about eight months now. You might recall that I had a similar sofa with the same fabric slipcover years ago, so I was confident when purchasing this one that I would love it. And I do! Ours is called the York, you can find the model and sale code .

Since I get a lot of questions about it, I thought it was high time I do a little update to answer some FAQ!

What are the benefits of a bench seat?

I personally love the bench style seat. It makes it extra comfortable as an extra bed or nap spot! And if you have a lot of people needing to squish onto the sofa at one time, no one has to sit on (or avoid falling in) the crack.

Is the deep seat comfortable?

Our family is on the “smaller side” but we all find it very comfy. You will likely want to put some pillows behind your back unless you are super long-legged! But that’s one of the things I love about the sofa. It’s the kind of sofa you want to curl up on, so I think the depth makes it all the more cozy and inviting.

How do you like the denim slipcover?

The main reason I chose this fabric was due to the quality and ease of maintenance. Ours is the Warm White Denim and the color is lovely–a soft white (not cream!). Our last white sofa had this same slipcover so I was confident in this decision before I even got it! It is still so soft, durable and machine washable.

How do you keep it clean?

Just as I remember, it has been very easy to keep clean in between washings. But I actually have not yet washed our new slipcovers in the machine. So far I’ve just spot cleaned as needed, for in-between washings I use Thieves Household Cleaner. You can get it as a Young Living member, one of many reasons I highly recommend the membership. It cleans just about everything!

Unlike my experience with IKEA slipcovers, this denim fabric is so much softer to the touch, and it doesn’t attract as much hair or fuzz. I remember loving that the denim didn’t get as wrinkled after I would wash it, either! I will just take the covers out of the dryer and put them back on before they are completely dry.

How does it hold up to your dogs?

It’s a white sofa, so it doesn’t hide everything. But that’s one of the things I love about it. I like my sofa to be clean, so trying to hid dirt or gross messes isn’t really my intention. I’d rather just do the spot cleaning when I see a need.

If you have a dark haired dog you might prefer a darker couch, but our dogs don’t shed so that really isn’t an issue for us. The machine washable slipcovers do make it easier to keep feeling fresh, though. No white fabric is ever “no maintenance” so that’s something to keep in mind.

When my dogs were puppies I gave up and got (above)–which like my white one, is also 25% off!

I’ve tried to uphold a no dog on the white sofa rule in this house, but Jack chooses to defy my rules. He still leaps up here on occasion, tosses the throw pillows on the flow and tries to dig the fluff out of the seat. But so far, I’m happy to report there has been no lasting damage!

Life Lately: Easter with 4 Doodles

Hey Friends! I hope you had a wonderful Easter! We went to church as a family and then had all of the kids and dogs over (ha!) to our house for an Easter brunch.

It’s always a wild party with all the doodles here. :)

Trying to get all of the dogs into one photo is a bit challenging if not impossible, but this method worked pretty well.

The pups look almost bigger than the kids!

Our dogs range from 30 pounds to 45 pounds, so they aren’t really as huge as they might appear. Especially Lily being held by (on the left). Courtney is just a petite girl, haha, and Lily looks like she was trying to escape.

To simplify our food prep this time, we ordered gluten-free vegan quiche from a local restaurant (Celest Cafe in Seattle) and baked it at home. It was delicious (but expensive)! The crust was yummy, too.

I need to find a good gluten-free vegan crust or a recipe (any suggestions?). I’m still learning how to navigate the fully gluten-free plant-eating life, although it hasn’t been quite as hard as I thought!

Kylee made this delicious salad with kale, arugula, radish, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, red onion, avocado, basil, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds. She also made a dressing with olive oil, lemon, white wine vinegar, salt, Dijon mustard, and maple syrup. Mmmm.

Kylee always makes such yummy (plant-based) meals! If you follow her , she often posts what she’s making on her stories.

Courtney made (gluten-free and vegan!). We served it with the vanilla bean non-dairy So Delicious coconut milk ice cream. Oh my goodness, the crisp was SOOOO good! It will definitely be a new traditional favorite. I would eat this every day if it was acceptable to do so.
