Armchair Slipcover
updated: Feb 11, 2013, 5:00 PM

I am looking to have a slipcover made for an armchair. Not reupholstered, just a slipcover. Any ideas?

There are slipcover companies online. Google it. I slipcovered my sofa that way. They make them very adjustable; you just pick the chair/sofa style.

Slipcovers online aren't fitted to your custom piece of furniture. Totally not the same thing.

Sorry OP, the only places in town I used to know are out of business or moved to LA. There used to be a great guy in Oxnard, so maybe ask this on the Ventura board!

I used to make slip covers.

Just an FYI the fabric to cover is rather expensive just to start with, if you are looking so save money, go with a ready made cover.

Actually, 404, I had my entire sofa plus 3 back and 3 seat cushion covers custom made online. I was amazed how well they all came out! You just really have to make sure you get all of your measurements correct. I used slipcovershop.com
Good luck!

I bought several sofas in early 2000 from One Beach Road on State Street. The owners have since retired. The actual slipcover and upholstery work was done in a factory in LA. I now need new slipcovers and would like to order from the same factory if possible. Does anyone know what that might have been?

Failing that, where in SB or Ventura could I have new slipcovers made to fit exactly? Thanks.
