Genoa accessories

One of the things I love most about my Genoa is the deep seats and wide arms which are just perfect for resting a cup of coffee or glass of wine. When I bought it, it came with removable arm covers which helped protect the upholstery from spills and have attributed to its longevity. I threw them in the washing machine one day and was horrified when they came out in shreds. Then the idea of doiley coasters was born. They weren't exactly ideal but with a little creativity, I think I've perfected it. I backed them with some calico and wallah!

I even took to staining some white ones in a pot of left-over tea.

Oh, I whipped up a cushion cover too but I'm not too sure about it??
