Making Multiyork 2 seater sofa covers

Home All Making Multiyork 2 seater sofa covers

For a few years, there’s been a trend towards huge family settees, including modular seating that you can wrap around your living room. However, there’s a lot to be said for the compact 2 seater settee. They’re comfy, they can fit into awkward spaces, and often they can accommodate at least 3 people. And the dog.

Multiyork sofas, though it stopped production in 2017, has left us a legacy of 2 seater couches that have stood the test of time – and will for years to come. Known for their quality, they are a sofa worth keeping hold of.

If you fancy refreshing the look of your Multiyork sofa and the upholstery or covers are still in good condition, 2 seater sofa covers are the ideal solution.

Here’s how we make your Multiyork sofa covers

Choose your new look from more than 800 fabrics and order removable, washable covers for two seater sofa covers that breathe new life into your beloved Multiyork.

Getting the right fit

Our 2 seater sofa covers are fitted to the dimensions of your settee – your local Plumbs consultant will take more than 100 individual measurements to ensure you get the right fit. You have the choice of three types – Easifit, Designer and Traditional.

1. Easifit – 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 2 seater sofa cover and refit them for a fresh, crease free look, time after time.

2. Designer – a non stretch fabric, providing a more structured 2 seater sofa 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.

3. Traditional – 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 the covers are still removable and selected fabrics are machine washable.

Can you still buy Multiyork sofas?

The company was founded in 1978 and stopped production in 2017, with some elements of the business sold off. Some former Multiyork employees came to work for Plumbs.

Thanks to their quality and enduring style, Multiyork sofas are still in circulation on second hand sites like eBay, Preloved and Gumtree. If you’re thinking of buying second hand – here’s a tip: older 2 seater sofas by Multiyork might benefit from reupholstery rather than two seater sofa covers, depending on the state of the frame, springs and stuffing, and if the fabric is damaged.

If you don’t fancy a second hand sofa, some of Fable & Plumb’s handcrafted, high quality sofas are inspired by the Multiyork style. These come with removable, washable sofa covers.
