Sofa with zip on attached arm cushions

Before - bare sofa, with cushions and loose covers removed.  

Before - sofa, with the original cover that came with it when it was purchased.  It has arm cushions that are attached with zips.  The client had a loose cover made to replace the original cover but she was not happy with it as the arm cushions had not been made separately like the original.

Before - sofa, with the replacement loose cover, covering the sofa and arm covers all in one and did not allow the arm cushions to be detachable.

After - sofa in a pretty floral fabric with detachable arm cuchions.  The client was over the moon and thought it looked better than when she first bought it.

Above - back of the sofa showing the concealed zip closure in the back seam of the loose cover.  The photo also shows the zip holding the arm cushions in place.

Before - recliner and 2 seater sofa.

After - loose covered recliner and sofa in cream.  The client wanted to be able to still recline the chair and so the fabric on the footrest is separate from the main body of the cover and is held in place with velcro. 

Before - armchair and 2 seater sofa, the sofa is upholstered in calico and the cushions show the original loose cover fabric.

After - the client went for a rich burgundy coloured fabric and have now been moved from the conservatory and given pride of place in the lounge.  The client was delighted with them.

2 Armchairs In Green Loose Covers

Tub Chair

Before - tub chair that had seen better days.  As you can see it had been throught a lot but the owner was very attached to it as it had been in the family for years and past down from previous generations.  Structurally the chair was sound but the upholstery was worn and torn in places.

After - the owner wanted to keep the colour as close to the original upholstery as possible but has gone for a knife pleated skirt instead of the box pleated in the original.

Matching Pair

Before - above and to the right, a pair of very sturdy old wing chairs and matching footstool, the upholstery was tired but the frames were in excellent condition.  The client didn't want to throw them out so decided to have loose covers made and reuse them in the conservatory of their new home.

After - above and right, the clients were delighted with their new covers and said that their furniture looked like it had been re-upholstered.

If the furniture has nice legs I like to expose them.  I've always believed, if you've got it you should flaunt it!
