“How come you guys don’t do custom slipcovers for other brands as well? Aren’t they all slipcover-able?”
As a matter of fact, we actually DO make custom slipcovers for non-IKEA brands.
Although we’re primarily known for being the specialists on custom IKEA slipcovers, we’ve been gradually expanding into other furniture brands such as Crate and Barrel covers, West Elm sofa covers, Restoration Hardware couch covers, Rowe slipcovers, Muji slipcovers, and Pottery Barn slipcovers.
Not only that, but we’ve also been accepting online requests to make custom slipcovers from lesser known brands and sofa models as well.
With just a couple of measurements and only a few pictures of the sofa sent to us through our online page, we were able to produce these highly customized slipcovers for our customers.
Find your fabric.
This is a custom slipcover we made with one of our best-selling fabrics, Liege Biscuit. (Though our
This customer wasn’t in the market to get an entirely new sofa, because there was nothing actually wrong with her current one.
We wanted to help them achieve the precise look they wanted for their living room — so we sent them some fabric samples, got the measurements, and three weeks later, 2 sets of beautiful linen sofa covers appeared at their doorstep.
“A miracle has happened in our living room, guys. A beautiful, wonderful, life-changing miracle in the form of custom linen slipcovers on our sofas!” – Liz @Lovegrowswild
This sofa in Herringbone Cement (Grey) was another custom sofa cover that we were happy to make for a customer who was looking for some budget-friendly ways to give her sofa a new look.
“I was NERVOUS about simply sending some measurements and getting back a slipcover that actually fit my couch. To say I was pleased with the end result would be the understatement of the year. The true test: my husband LOVES them”. — Jenn @Myfabulesslife
One of the reasons why you don’t see many companies offering custom sofa slipcovers is because the wedge arms like the ones on the sofa above are actually quite hard to measure for.
Take the Darby collection by Rowe for example. Although its cushions and overall body appear to be rectangular and quite straightforward with its 90-degree angles, the wedge arms alone are what actually makes making a slipcover for this sofa just that much more challenging.
Stitching together a slipcover that will curve along the wedge sofa arms requires a very particular way of measuring the sofa, which is why we walk our customers through the measurement process with our superb customer service team.
Some custom sofa magic.
“Can you do the same magic on these sofas?” — asked one of our customers. They owned a loveseat (two-seater), and a couch (three-seater) from Pottery Barn, and was trying to find someone to sew a new slipcover for their sofa.
We exchanged a few more details about the sofas, received the measurements, and went to work.
Similar to sofas with wedge arms, one of the most challenging things to pull off when it comes to making sofa slipcovers is making sure that all the curved arms fit perfectly.
The Roll-back arms of that particular sofa closely resemble the arms from the Bloomsbury collection by Crate and Barrel, and the Grand Scale collection by Restoration Hardware.
Different sofa brands have different sized-curves.
The particular curvature and circumference of the rolled-arms require precise measurements in order to make a slipcover that fits nicely for these kinds of sofas.
Age is just a number.
One of our customers over in Adelaide has been using the same leather sofa in their house for more than 15 years.
The sofa would have already been in the dumpster if they didn’t stumble upon one of our slipcovers that was featured on IKEAFans.
They gave us a call, and 3 weeks later, their new slipcover showed up.
We didn’t just stop at sofas.
For this request, we made 2 different kinds of custom slipcovers. One for their sofa, and the other for their dining chairs.
Once again, we went through the usual process of exchanging a couple of emails, pictures, and measurements. 3 weeks later, they now have a beautiful custom made sofa cover with matching dining chair slipcovers to match.
Making a custom slipcover for both the sofa and the dining chairs in the same fabric and style really helped create a consistent overall look between the living room and dining area.
Not an IKEA sofa? Don’t be shy.
Though we started off as IKEA slipcover specialists, our years on the job have made us so much more than just that.
We didn’t just stop at IKEA slipcovers, we didn’t want to restrict our slipcovers to solely IKEA brands alone— which is why we started expanding out into other sofa brands like West Elm, Restoration Hardware, and Crate and Barrel, just to name a few.
We looked at the other sofa brands out there and realized that not many of them were offering helpful, and more importantly, cheap solutions for people with damaged or dirtied sofas that didn’t involve reupholstery.
A nice West Elm sofa like the Monroe or the Drake can set you back about
$1,000 – $1,500 or so, and finding someone to reupholster it if it’s damaged could cost almost just as much.
We believe that investments like your sofa should have convenient and affordable solutions to keep it looking clean and fresh for as long as it possibly can, which is precisely how this company started in the first place.
