A custom or ready-made slipcover gives a classic sofa, dining chair, ottoman or bedhead an immediate refresh. It’s the forgiving cousin of fixed upholstery, covering a multitude of sins with a swathe of linen or on-trend pattern and easily removed for washing or remaking.
Use a slipcover to preserve an heirloom or to update a cheap and cheerful buy. Both up-cycling ideas reduce waste.
