Almost every house has one….the favorite chair. Sometimes it’s a recliner placed strategically in front of the entertainment center. While in other homes it a nice, deep armchair just made for reading books placed under a sunny window. But it doesn’t matter what your favorite chair’s style is if it is covered with pet hair, or badly stained from food accidents, or has prematurely darkened armrests caused by sweat or body oils. No matter what cleaners you use or how often you clean it, your favorite chair has long lost its good looks. You may have heard that you can use a chair slipcover to hide away its tattered and worn upholstery while protecting it from further damage. But just what things should you look for when selecting slipcovers for chairs?
There is also a variety of patterns available for slipcovers that can allow you to match your furniture to any type of theme you may choose. A white slipcover with a navy trim is an excellent option for those with a nautical or ocean theme in their house. Floral patterned slipcovers are an option for anyone who wants to decorate with a Victorian theme and so on. There are a variety of ways to purchase slipcovers. You can either find them through catalogs, from online retailers or from any large chain store. Simply find a store that carries the right pattern or color for your needs and there you are ready to redesign your home like a professional interior designer.
You just finished moving in and have collapsed on the sofa. But once you are sitting down you realize just how out of place your old sofa looks in your new place. The color is all wrong and the fabric pattern sticks out like a sore thumb. But you just moved in and you still have bills to pay and you can’t afford any new furnishings. But how can you invite anyone over when your sofa looks so bad? This is why a new slipcover for your sofa in the right matching colors with a different fabric can make all the difference in the world.
Fit your chair - Making a muslin pattern for your slipcover allows you to refine its design. A muslin is especially helpful for deciding whether you want a snug fit or a looser European style with more ease, as is currently popular (shown in my slipcover examples on these pages). While making a muslin, you can also work out the finishing and closure details and produce a working pattern complete with markings and notes. To make a fitted muslin with a seat, band, and skirt for your chair, follow the steps outlined in the photos below.
