While I have been a big fan of the Bemz slipcovers in theory, I hadn't had a chance to check one out for myself. Luckily though, Bemz was kind enough to send me a cover for an Ikea Lillberg rocking chair.

The Bemz Lillberg cover (retails at $62.99 plus shipping) in Baroque Chocolate Brown took a while to get here (around two weeks), which is understandable since it was being shipped from Lithuania.
