Slipcovers: Furniture Interior Design

Alex and Amy rule the house. Their Mom’s home in Fairview is whimsically and elegantly furnished. The design is shabby-sheik with whites, creams, crystal and drama. All purchases are made, however, with the little doggies in mind!

When it was time to replace several upholstered pieces, the Home Owner and I shopped at the In-Detail showroom in the World Trade Center. In-Detail carries the Best Slipcover line. Slipcovers are constructed to fit the wide variety of upholstery styles they offer.

With Amy and Alex in mind, these practical considerations made Best Slipcover a terrific choice:

  • All slipcovers are made of pre-washed fabrics. Because of this there is no shrinkage. A slipcover’s shape does not change after the first laundering.
  • All fabrics are machine washable.
  • All slipcover seams are surged for stability with repeated washings.

Of course, the slipcover “look” is perfect with shabby sheik decor! For our Living Room we chose a three cushion Harmony Sofa with the slipcover to be constructed of velvety-chenille. A slipcovered oval ottoman with a short box-pleated skirt was selected to serve as a coffee-table/footrest.

For another sitting area we chose the Rachel Loveseat with a slipcover in Tuscany Oyster linen.  Ruffled welt on the cushions and a ruffled skirt were irresistable upgrades! For this same sitting area we were able to purchase coordinating fabric from the manufacturer to slipcover an existing chair.

The order was placed, the clock is ticking and we are anxiously awaiting the delivery of our custom seating!
