Stretch slipcovers come in a choice of durable fabrics that are also soft and comfortable to sit on. Popular materials include twill, denim and faux suede. Most sofa and chair slipcovers are fully machine-washable, so they are easy to care for. With a slipcover protecting your upholstery, there's no need to worry about accidental food or drink spills, or dirty marks made by pets or children. There's an enormous selection of colors and patterns to choose from, so you should be able to find a slipcover design that looks fantastic with your décor.
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 There is a solution to this and other problems you might have with mismatched or outdated furniture.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.
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.
From a practical standpoint, you may want to use slipcovers to match a room to the season. Or perhaps you’d like to simulate an upholstered look, either temporarily (while you decide on larger issues of your decor) or as a final design. (For some ideas, see Dress up your chair.) In any case, I’d like to show you just how easy it is to breathe fresh air into your home or apartment with the simplest of slipcovering projects: a seat cover for a beloved or interesting side chair. And for those of you who are new to sewing, don’t worry. Making a chair cover is an ultraeasy way to practice basic sewing skills. Combine sumptuous fabrics, exotic closures, outrageous trims, different pleat treatments, or even your favorite embellishments.
