White Slipcovers in the Dining Room

I love the look of the two slipcovered chairs at the end of a table.  My customer chose the 100% cotton linen-look fabric for her custom slipcovers.  We finished them off with a mini knife pleated skirt.

 I love the look of the white slipcovers against all the dark wood.

Butterfly Office Chair Slipcover

This style office chair is more difficult to offer long distance from measurments.  If the chair was purchased recently or is still available in stores such as Staples or Office Max then I can fit the slipcover in the store on the actual chair.  As you can tell from the pictures this slipcover was fitted at Staples.  I have permission from the manager and I go early in the morning.

The customer chose Amy Butler Alchemy Line of fabrics- pattern: Queenann's Butterflies and a pink pattern for the contrast fabric.
This customer also chose to have matching arm covers made.

Racing Stripe Slipcover

This chair was definitely a challenge because of three things. The wood trim, curved back and attached seat cushion. I was unable to pre-wash the racing stripe fabric because of fear of fading the printed racing stripe. This chair will need to be dry cleaned. The fabric is Bark Racing Stripe from Serena and Lily. The solid white on the rest of the chair is an organic cotton canvas. There are two of these slipcovered chairs going to my customers lake cottage. My customer will be sending me pictures of both chairs slipcovered in the cottage, Regretfully she will not be able to take the pictures for a while because of construction. These pictures were taken in my workroom.

The chair is the Catania chair from Arhaus furniture.

My customer purchased a Bark racing stripe pillow.
This chair from Serena and Lily was the inspiration for the slipcover.

Curvy Sofa

My latest slipcover had a lot of curves and I loved the shapely cushions.  The existing cushions had lost their shape and were not comfortable any more.  We made new foam inserts and they have given the sofa a new life.

She chose the knife pleat skirt and I love how the skirt looks on this sofa.
 Here is the before picture

My customer has a big beautiful home and this sofa is on the third floor.  Whew!  I was huffing and puffing when i finally reached the third floor.

White slipcovers are my favorite but it was a nice change to work with a different color. The fabric is a brushed denim in color: graphite.
I am now booked through the holidays and am now taking orders for the new year.

Slipcover with a Slip

My customer's wing chair had a strong blue design on a white background and she wanted to have a white slipcover made.  The blue design was showing through the slipcover fabric so I made an undergarment to go under the slipcover.  The undergarment helped to cover the upholstery fabric.

 Here is a before picture of the chair

Much better with the undergarment- After with white slipcover done in a brushed white canvas
 And with matching ottoman.
