Cover Ideas For A Wingback Chair
A Wingback chair have been a furniture staple for families since they were introduced in the 18th century. Determine your needs, your budget and your design plan, then cover the Wingback chair accordingly. A structurally sound chair deserves the investment in a custom-made slipcover. A well-fit slipcover protects the original upholstery, a consideration for antique or sentimental chairs. Tight-fitting slipcovers resemble upholstery, while a loose fit provides a shabby-chic look. Choose a washable fabric if you want the convenience of at-home cleaning, and keep extra cushion covers on hand to make it even more serviceable. Wobbly or squeaky chairs make prime candidates for reupholstery. After removing the cover and padding, an upholsterer tightens or replaces the springs, tightens loose screws and adds new padding.
You can order structural changes, such as altering the height of the chair back, during reupholstering. One-size-fits-all Wingback chair covers make a good solution for a tight budget. Available through online decor stores, catalog shopping and big-box retailers, these reasonably priced covers come in many solid colors. Typically constructed of a knit fabric, they stretch to fit the chair. However, without a custom fit, you cannot expect the tailored look of upholstery or details such as piping or invisible zippers.
