Yeah I know its to protect them, but protecting them like that almost defeats the purpose of having a couch. Why don’t we just sit on a bar stool or a bench table, it would provide the same level of comfort. Also not to mention it looks terrible.

Are people so lazy that they can’t just find the effort to clean their couches when they get dirty? Or just ask visitors not to put their feet on the seats?

I think plastic covers on couches should be banned.
I think using a cloth would be a much better alternative. As said by angel undercover. Yeah and I forgot those squeaking sounds it makes when you move aaaah!
