A good looking and well fitting sofa slipcover can easily and cheaply update the look of a room. A sofa slipcover can cover up worn or tattered upholstery or help make a mismatched sofa and chair look like that they came off the same factory assembly line. A well designed sofa slipcover in the right color and fabric can demand attention and interaction from everyone who enters the room. A sofa slipcover can help unlock the true decorating potential of your home, since your "style" will no longer be dictated to you by your furniture!
Many people like the vintage look of an old sofa or chair but the upholstery is out of style. Maybe you have that old sofa from grandma and the old chair from Aunt Anne but they don't match. There is a solution to this and other problems you might have with mismatched or outdated furniture. Choose new furniture slipcovers. Slipcovers can give you a contemporary look while letting your keep those heirlooms. You can choose between matching fabrics for your furniture slipcover or complementary fabrics to mix or match your design scheme.
Note that the band that wraps around the chair below the seat often eliminates the need for a lot of darts or tucks and acts as a smooth vertical transition from the seat to the skirt. The number of overlapping closures needed in the band and skirt depends on the chair’s anatomy. Each above-the-seat element, such as a back and arms, needs a separate opening. Allow enough overlap in the closure to ensure a smooth fit with no gaps in the skirt (see the sewing instructions below). The skirt will need pleats at the legs if they splay out from the chair, but instead of making these pleats in the muslin, just mark where they’ll meet at the center of the legs.
Have you taken a look at slipcovers recently? There are lots of new fabrics, textures, and styles to choose from. There is a slipcover for whatever need you may have.
