(The picture isn't all that great so I'll probably shoot it again tomorrow with better light.)
We did go with the white cover (that's machine washable) even though I really liked the gray one but it was dry clean only. Don't like that. If the kids want to sit on the lounge then we put a blanket down first. Even I sit on a blanket.
The chaise lounge is perfect for reading, watching a movie, or just relaxing while you look out the window and the not nice neighbor's house. I plan to get a fleece throw to snuggle under for the winter.
