Why Slipcovered Furniture?

Slipcovered furniture is still much in demand. Take away the easy-care, relaxed style and ability to change your upholstery every season, and you can see why this trend keeps on going. With today’s working families and vacation homes, it is no wonder that the popularity continues to take center stage.
Slipcovers made of Crypton, Sunbrella, and Outdura fabrics are more durable than fabrics of the past. With higher synthetic contents, softer hands and better designs, they are paving the way for easy care. Sunbrella and Oudura fabrics were originally designed for outdoor use, and still are, but they have also found their way into interior applications. Many of these fabrics may be machine washed, spot cleaned, dry-cleaned or even hosed off. Check with the individual manufacturer or retailer for recommendations.
The relaxed style of slipcovers lends itself well to families with children and pets, vacation homes, rentals and frequently used rooms. If something has been spilled on or is dirty, a quick trip to the dry cleaner or washer can make the room fresh again.
Changing from warm weather to cool weather often requires a change in furnishings. Slipcovered furniture can offer the change from linen, cotton, and light colors to corduroy, wool and warmer fabrics for fall and winter. Simply swap out a pair of covers seasonally during your regular cleaning routine.
