Custom Slipcovers Cushions Pillows

Custom Slipcovers:

Choosing  a custom fit slipcover is a common sense and practical way to update your old, dirty, or tired-looking furniture.  Often times, your furniture is just fine structurally, and simply needs a cosmetic lift.  A tailored slipcover will transform your furniture and your room!

  • My slips are made exactly to your piece of furniture. 
  • The fit will be snug, like a second skin. 
  • My work looks similar to re-upholstery.
  • Each cushion cover has a zipper for easy removal when laundering.
  • Entire slip removes for laundering or dry cleaning.

For couches and loveseats, I work at your home initially, then finish at my shop.
For chairs, we make arrangements for them to come to my shop.  Pick and delivery is available.
