What Are Loose Sofa Covers?

Loose sofa covers are placed over the top of your existing upholstery to give your sofa, chair or footstool a brand new appearance.

Perfectly practical

Unlike our reupholstery service, loose sofa covers can be removed and most of our fabrics are machine washable!

However, what we do with our loose sofa covers is anything but simple. We have been in the business of making sofa covers for over 60 years and in that time we have developed the very best practises for producing stunning, close-fitting sofa covers for your furniture.

We have a team of expert Home Consultants who inspect your furniture and can take over 100 measurements to get a quality made to measure product you can be proud of. We offer a range of product options for loose covers to cater for all furniture types.

Handmade sofa covers for the perfect fit

Here at Plumbs we have been making quality, made-to-measure sofa, armchair and dining chair covers for over 60 years, expertly crafted in our workshop by our master makers.

What is the difference between Easifit, Designer & Traditional Loose Covers?

Easifit

Easifit are a stretch cover fabric which offers excellent value for money. Plus, due to the flexibility of the fabric, we are able to cover over 98% of furniture styles. These covers are easy to remove and replace so you can wash your covers and refit them for a fresh, crease free look, time after time.

Designer

Our designer covers differ from our Easifit range in that they are a non stretch fabric, providing a more structured cover. Due to their structured fit, your Home Consultant would take extra care in their inspection and measuring of your furniture to ensure you get the best possible fit from your covers.

Traditional

Our Traditional loose covers are the pinnacle of our loose cover range. A pattern is made directly on your furniture by our expert crafts team – right down to the smallest detail. Your furniture is taken away where necessary to ensure a beautiful fit. The advantage of Traditional loose covers over reupholstery is that selected fabrics are machine washable.

    Valance options

    We have a variety of valance options available depending on which kind of cover type you opt for. This includes traditional knife pleat valances through to more contemporary looking skirted valances. We also have an elasticated option for our Easifit range.
