Tropical Print Slipcovers for a Beach Rental

Here's some naked furniture in a beach condo, all ready for a new set of slipcovers for the upcoming rental season.

And here they are in all their bold and beautiful freshness...

I have to admit to thinking, "wow, that's a lot of print." But my savvy customer made a very good point that most people live with shades of beige all year long, so when they go on a beach vacation, a fun splashy floral adds to the feeling of escape. The fabric is a good quality micro suede so it will be able to handle a steady stream of renters, but the busy print will also camouflage quite a bit of wear and tear.  

Pattern matching is a fun little challenge. I needed two widths for the back. Can you find the seam?
