Isn’t re-upholstering better than a slipcover?
We don’t think so, but the choice between upholstery and slipcovers is a matter of personal style and lifestyle. Slipcovers are family-friendly, smart and easy to live with, and they give a room a relaxed, inviting look. They may not be for everyone, or for every room, but done in a nice linen or mattelasse’ they are actually quite dressy and chic. Some of our clients have nice upholstered pieces for company and slipcovers for the everyday messes when the kids are small. Others like the seasonal change of tailored velvet upholstery in the winter with a cotton slipcover for summer that is cooler to sit on. And some beach house owners have a set for themselves and a set for the renters. Most clients, however, are just redecorating and need a new look, or have decided that washability is a smart feature for their furnishings.
