Chair in Calico Fabric

Calico is a base fabric usually found under loose cover chairs and sofas.

Here we repaired the chair and re-foamed the body before reupholstering in a fresh calico cover. The customer will now fit back on the loose covers.

Loose Coves made for a Sofa

Our customer requested loose covers for her sofa. The requirements were: very simple covers, no piping, and no skirt. Below are the results, I think this style works well with the simple yet chic fabric choice and the pleasing lines of the sofa.

Looks rather ‘French chic’ I think.

We make lose covers for all types of furniture.  Here is an example of a custom made loose cover made for a high back Kingston chair – it’s leather underneath.

Interesting this chair as it has a low back rail with a high back foam cushion. The back cushion fits behind the seat foam. Possibly a Ikea designed chair.

Making Loose Covers

We can re-make loose covers for your furniture.

There are some good things about loose covers for furniture, a great idea; you can put them in the wash and even change the style/colour if you have two sets of loose covers. The down-side is that they often go out of shape and become baggy and in places they don’t fit as they used to.

I have a cream linen loose cover sofa that is lovely, it washes well but at the back it no longer fits correctly.  Nature of this type of fabric.

Re-Making Loose Covers

With some covers if they are of a more ridged fabric (unlike linen) the fabric will hang better.  We can take apart the originals and re-make the covers.

Most loose covers often are out of shape and have become baggy and in places they don’t fit as they used to.  The solution in this case is to re-make the loose covers based on the the body of the furniture.  The upholsterer will work around the furniture body on the bench, measure up the individual panels to make each panel fall and hang correctly.  It’s good advice to order two sets to be made at the same time to save costs.

Here is a lovely sofa we delivered to our customer in Northallerton.

We made a set of new tailored loose covers to replace the covers that had worn.

How to Fit

When fitting after wash allow to dry naturally but not bone dry. Re-fit when the fabric is a little damp.  As it fully dries at room temperature it will form a nice shape around the furniture body.
