Slip covers can be used on virtually any kind of furniture – sofas, occasional chairs, dining room chairs, ottomans, benches and headboards – to change the look of an older piece, hide an unfortunate mistake (we’ve all made them!), match a new wall colour or the changing season.
I can help you narrow down the choices in fabric design and colour, and navigate the dizzying array of slipcover styles now available, such as piped or not piped, inverted pleats with or without contrast, short or long skirts – the list goes on.
Reupholstering antique or heirloom pieces has always been very popular and is a great way to keep something you love looking wonderful. I work with local craftspeople to make sure your antiques get specialized attention to retain both their beauty and value.
But the growing trend today is to recover even “regular” or simply out-of-date pieces as well, rather than relegating them to the basement or tossing them in the landfill. A good environmental option, sometimes it’s also less expensive than buying new – and you’ll never see what you have anywhere else! Your recovered furniture will always be one-of-a-kind.
There are fabric selections for many other accessories, which can be created especially for you. Shower curtains, decorative accent cushions, table cloths (inside and out), are manufactured locally and provide the individual look you want. Tailored to create harmony in your home using textiles.
