In addition to our furniture upholstery services, Elegant Upholstery & Slipcovers makes the best hand-crafted custom slipcovers in the Houston Area. We have over two decades of experience making custom slipcovers for your sofas and chairs. All of our custom slipcovers are styled to your individual taste and are tailor made for each specific piece of furniture to ensure a perfect fit. Our slipcovers are works of art that will drastically improve and not diminish the appearance of your furniture.
Our process is simple and hassle-free. To begin with, just simply email a photo of your furniture and give a description of what your aspirations are; we then will contact you and give you a quote for labor to make the custom slipcovers. If the price for labor is agreeable we can then schedule a time for us to go to your home and do a fitting of your furniture where we will drape the fabric over your furniture, pin it, and cut it. A fitting is necessary because furniture typically has many curves and contours. It is not possible to make a good custom slipcover with rudimentary measurements alone. We do the fitting at your home so that you never have to be without your furniture. We then sew the pieces together at our shop. When your custom slipcover is finished, we will install it. Fabric choices are typically made at our shop prior to us going to your home to do the fitting of the furniture. You can make the fabric choice online as well if that is a more convenient option for you. You can also schedule an in-home consultation with a licensed interior designer to help you select the fabric.
We can copy your existing slipcover perfectly if you mail it to us or bring it by our shop.
You will have quite a few options for the styling and customization of your slipcover. Most of our custom slipcovers have a cover for each individual cushion and one large cover for the body of the sofa or chair. Our clients normally choose to have welting although you can choose to go without it. You can also choose flat flange which is technically also still welting but without the cording. There are several other welt options such as using a different fabric for the welt. Most people choose to have a skirt that is flat with box pleats at the corners but there are other styles of skirts. For example, waterfall skirts for custom slipcovers are very popular right now. Other skirt options for custom slipcovers are scalloped skirts, gathered skirts, kick pleats, knife pleats or no skirt at all. We can add bows or buttons if that is your preference. Whatever style of slipcover that you may have in mind, let Elegant Upholstery & Slipcovers make it for you. We can fabricate any slipcover that you can imagine.
We can make the perfect slipcover for you that matches your home decor. We have hundreds of different fabric options available that are suitable for slipcovers such as canvas, linen and microfiber. We also offer Sunbrella and other outdoor fabrics which are very popular right now for custom slipcovers for longevity reasons. Most of our fabric is machine washable.
Our slipcovers are very popular with families with small children and pet owners. You will find that after you have your first custom slipcover, you will never go without protecting your furniture again. If you think about it, isn't it kind of nasty to leave your furniture uncovered? In my opinion it is. With a custom slipcover, all you have to do is take the slipcover off and wash it when it gets dirty. I predict that slipcovers will soon become more mainstream because it makes little sense to go without them.
