Slip-covers are great for a variety of reasons. Here are just a few:
- A custom cover is less expensive than re-upholstery
- They cover a variety of sins like faded wood and stained fabric
- Slip-covers are an excellent way to create a seasonal look. White for summer, stripes for winter.
- To cover a chair like this (but with welting and the bottom cushion separately covered) takes about ten yards of fabric.
I’m having a chair slip-covered because I love the existing fabric, but it won’t go with the new design I have planned for our bedroom.
Have you ever thought of using slip-covers for the summer?
