Fitted Slipcovers Or New Furniture? In the old economy, it was not uncommon to simply replace a sofa if it didn't match a new design or motif being integrated into a home. In the new, more budget-conscious era, designers are looking for ways to avoid replacing expensive pieces like sofas and chairs. It can cost thousands for a truly excellent sofa. That sofa will last for years, so there is no reason to replace it if it's still in working condition. A slipcover can be used to breathe new life into any piece of furniture.
A more traditional chair slipcover is hand sewn by a slipcover professional or upholstery shop. Hand crafted slipcovers were originally made by tapestry weavers and were used to protect the furnishings of the very rich. But during the 18th and 19th century chair slipcovers became a fashion accessory all on their own. As slipcovers for chairs became the vogue, slipcover makers, often immigrants from Europe would go to the homes of their wealthy clients and measure and cut out fabrics on site. Then the men would return to their homes or shops and have their womenfolk do the actual sewing.
