My customer wanted a fresh new look that would be easier to decorate around. She chose this beautiful natural brushed canvas. Now she can decorate with colorful pillows and change the look with the seasons.
The before sofa had attached back cushions and my customer chose to not mimic the original upholstery. The end result turned out very nice. I did nothing extra under the slipcover.

My customer wanted a slipcover for her leather Arhaus sofa. The leather was wearing out and she wanted a change. She chose an olive brushed denim and she finished it off with a knife pleat skirt. I pre-washed the fabric in HOT water and dried in the HOT setting.

I copied the original design on the inside back with cording.
This picture from Pinterest was the inspiration for the knife pleat skirt.
This is a very well made sofa and the cushions were in great shape. Merri Karp was the Interior Consultant on this job and asked me to make the sofa slipcover. I LOVE the fabric she chose. The pattern popped and showed a beautiful texture after it was washed. The customer loved it and said it looked very inviting. I wish I had a before picture of this room. Merri did an amazing job with the room and I recommend her if you need help with your decorating decisions. She will help you with furniture placement, picking out paint colors and fabrics and she does window treatments.
I do not have a before picture of this chair 1/2 but it was green and the back cushion was floppy. My customer ordered a cushion wrap for her back cushion and it is good as new. The brushed canvas makes a soft and snuggly slipcover and it gets softer with each washing.
I pre-wash all fabrics in HOT water and dry on a HOT setting to remove the maximum shrinkage before I begin constructing the slipcover.
It has been a long time since I posted new pictures of my work. During the Christmas rush I kept forgetting to bring my camera to the customer's home.
This was a great transformation from before to after. The slipcover done in a red denim has breathed new life into this old girl. The extra scrolls on the front of the wings is a great detail and posed quite a challenge combined with the attached back cushion. I am really happy with the results.
My calendar is quickly filling up. As of today I am booking into the middle of June.
My customer has a beautiful dining room set but she was not loving all the dark wood. She wanted to lighten the room up with linen slipcovers. She loves the look of Belgium linen from Restoration Hardware. This beautiful linen/cotton blend in a natural linen color closely resembles the Belgium linen at a lower cost. There were a total of 8 chairs, 2 arm chairs and 6 side chairs. This dining room transformation was timed perfectly just in time for Thanksgiving.

Here is a picture of the back of one of the dining room chairs. I followed the detailed shape of the beautiful carved wood.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
I have one more slipcover to deliver before Thanksgiving.
