For over a century slipcovers have been a common household item for furnishing. However, these old slipcovers were often uncomfortable and not very attractive. The modern slipcovers today allow you to make an affordable fashion statement with your furniture. Many of the slipcovers today come in a wide variety of patterns and colors so you can find one to match any design need. Not only that, but today's slipcover fabrics are made from material that is easy to clean.
These days furniture slipcovers can be found for seats of all shapes and sizes, from wing backed chairs to sectional sofas, from loveseats to ottomans. Fitting a new slipcover to a favorite piece of furniture offers a simple yet effective way to instantly improve its appearance and give it a fresh lease of life. Ready made slipcovers for sofas and chairs are the cheapest option, but even having fitted slipcovers custom made can be relatively inexpensive, especially when compared to the costs of re-upholstery or buying a whole new suite. A real benefit of a slipcover is that it can be easily replaced whenever you fancy a change, or if it needs to be washed.
Since the first housewife looked down at her dirty upholstered chaise or chair and shook her head with despair, someone has been making slipcovers. The slipcover first started out as a furniture throw, a roll of matching or contrasting fabric that was simply "thrown over" an upholstered piece of furniture.Modern Sure Fit slipcovers are removable fabric covers that can be slipped over a chair or couch to protect the upholstery wear and tear. Later on slipcovers were hand made by professional seamstresses and upholstery shops. Slipcovers like these were ‘tailored" or custom made and often took a long time to sew and were very expensive to make.
Study your chair - You don’t need home-decorating experience to design a slipcover. But I do suggest you start by taking a good look at the piece of furniture you want to work on. Side or occasional chairs almost always come with their own distinct personality. And because the slipcover will leave the chair’s back, arms, and legs exposed, it’s nice to relate the slipcover’s style to the chair’s design. Or conversely, it’s fun to deliberately contrast the chair with its cover design, which is a good way to integrate an oddball piece of furniture into your decor.
