Loose covers for sofas and chairs offer a cost effective option for updating furniture and can easily be thrown in the wash or sent for dry cleaning, perfect if you have children or pets. Our skilled team of upholsterers make each cover to order, collecting the item to create a pattern directly from the furniture. Our experienced upholsterers and sewing machinists overlock all edges and skilfully piece together the fabric to create a fantastic loose cover.

We don’t work from old loose covers as they often stretch or shrink, so patterning from your furniture guarantees a perfect fit. If you want a change in design, such as adding or removing a skirt, this is no problem at all. When we create your loose covers, if the fabric is machine washable we always allow for shrinkage. With thousands of fabrics to choose from, you’re certain to find one to match your personality and room. Our friendly sales team are more than happy to help you narrow down the choices to match your decor, or perhaps create a stand out piece with a loose cover for one of your armchairs.

Why not spruce up your Multiyork sofa with a new loose cover? We can create loose covers for any type of furniture from any brand, such as Welsey Barrell, John Lewis, Parker Knoll, Laura Ashley, Sofa Workshop and more.

We offer a collection and delivery service in the South West, but if you are further afield we can quote through photographs and arrange for a trusted courier to collect and deliver your item safely.

Why choose loose covers?

Update your furniture to match your style

Trends come and go, so if you’re a dedicated follower of interior styles having a loose cover offers a way to keep up to date. Just order a new cover when you think it’s time for a change. You might even find your previous covers come back into fashion again! You can have loose covers made for your sofa, chaise, dining chairs, lounge chairs, footstool, bedroom chair, and more.

A practical option

If you have a practically demanding home life, a loose cover on your sofa means you don’t have to worry so much about sticky fingers and potential spillages. Simply throw the loose cover in the wash or drop it into a dry cleaners.

Save money

Creating a loose cover is a more cost effective way of updating your furniture. Being able to wash the covers means no expensive specialist furniture dry cleaners required. New loose covers also tend to be less expensive than new fitted upholstery.
