Ellen’s original slipcover and cushions on her Quatrine sofa and loveseat had seen better days. Uh, I think the cat begs to differ 🙂
Luckily the frame and spring system were still in excellent shape. All it took was a slipcover makeover and new cushion inserts to give these quality pieces a fresh new look and function. A worthwhile investment to keep them usable for several more years.
I used a 12 oz. yarn dyed denim to make these durable, washable slipcovers. You can’t tell from the photos but the color is Loden Green, a beautiful soft greyish-green. Like most cotton denim fabrics this one washes up nicely and has very low wrinkle.
I like using self welt cord and a lined tailored skirt for pieces like these; classic details that add a professional finish.
