Ready-Made Designer Slipcovers!

Sometimes upholstered seating really needs a pick-me-up.  I recently found a great source for ready-made slipcovers in period designer fabrics – Bemz!  It’s a Swedish company that offers 160 fabrics  made to fit specific styles of sofas and chairs manufactured by IKEA


  Slipcovers for sofas run from $300 to over $900, depending on size and fabric.


They also carry various ready-made slipcovers for popular IKEA chair styles, including armchairs like this Ektorp.  With this fabric, the slipcover is about $400.


And for dining chairs, like the Henriksdal below.  You can opt for a short skirt or a long one.  This one costs $79 in this particular fabric.

They do look fabulous, but the cost for the slipcover is often more than the actual piece of furniture.  And they only fit IKEA furniture.  It can actually be less expensive to have custom covers done through The Decorologist (like, half the cost).  Custom means they will fit your sofa, chair, ottoman, or table perfectly.  Contact me if you need help recovering your favorite furniture!
