Chairs can get dinged up and destroyed just from everyday use.  In order to protect a chair’s arms it is

necessary to have chair arm covers. 

These covers can be used for protection but also add a hint of elegance

to the furnishing.  Utilizing covers is a

lot like utilizing gloves, you can live without them but at what cost?

Think back to the chairs you have or have sat on, have any of those ever

had a lost arm cover or had damage to the arms?

An important thing to remember in the world of furniture covering is the
