New dressing for the sofa or couch(slipcovers) can alter the look of a room more effectively than any other change you can make. Even the simplest of slipcovers in the right fabric can perk up a dreary decor in an instant. With a slipcover job that includes the couch and easy chairs, the room can be given a brand new style or color scheme. Slipcovers are the logical solution if you are trying to hide old upholstery that has seen better days. Slipcovers allow you to change the look of sofas, love seats, ottomans, and chairs according to the seasons or simply freshen up a too-familiar room.
When you bring up the topic or “Slipcovers” as a potential decorating solution it can be a challenge. Most consumers immediately picture those removable loose sofa or chair covers that are advertised in many retail stores or on the internet. Those types of slipcovers are best used as temporary replacements fairly quickly when a change is called for in your home. In its most basic form, a slipcover might be just a length of fabric, artfully draped and tied in place.
Here at Innovative Fabric Creations we fabricate “Custom Fitted Slipcovers”. only. The simple often inexpensive slipcovers may be “just right” in the picture of a catalog or magazine. They look perfect on a pictured sofa or couch in the advertisement or in a retail outlet, but once you sit on the sofa or chair slipcover you will soon experience the disappointing value of money spent for an “Off the Rack” Slipcover.
What you will receive from Innovative Fabric Creations is a custom fitted slipcover that will be fabricated to recover and shape the contours of your sofa or chair. A very fitted, well-tailored slipcover, trimmed with welt and complemented with matching cushion covers, that can take on the look of upholstery but still be removed for laundering or cleaning.
Upholstery is more permanent by nature. Fabric is attached directly to the furniture frame over some degree of padding. Except for making welt and the sewing of the cushion covers, there is almost no sewing involved in the upholstering process. A “Custom Fitted Slipcover” can mimic upholstery or it can transition the traditional style upholstered sofa or chair to a more casual fitted slipcover to blend with the casual relaxing decor of a family room.
An advantage of slipcovers for your furniture is that almost any decorator fabric can be used. Tailored, fitted covers for a sofa or chair in a family room, call for a medium to heavier weight cloth with good stability. Denims, Canvas, Cotton Twill, Linen blends and Ultra Suede Micro Fibers are very popular for busy families with small children or pets. A Chippendale chair in a bedroom rarely used may look beautiful in a silk shantung fabric. Many customers with young families prefer the easy care and durability of solid color denims. colors on large scale sofas and sectionals will unify the rooms decor and give many years of service.
Innovative Fabric Creations offers a wide selection and price range of high quality Indoor/Outdoor decorator fabrics and trims, cushion/ pillow inserts, and foam to satisfy your slipcover and other soft home furnishing needs.
