Coral Print Slipcover for Ethan Allen Chair

What a transformation! From outdated plaid to contemporary coral print, this slipcover makeover dramatically changed the look of my customer’s Ethan Allen chair.

The fabric:  Ariel Spa Green Coral Reef, a large coral pattern sized just right for this big wingback. Beautiful color, too! To conserve fabric I loosely matched the print on the front only. A tailored fit shows off the chair’s curvy features.

  2. Love the print and color….so summery and beachy and fun! And such quality workmanship on the slipcover….it fits like a glove.

  3. It looks like you tuck the fabric into the side of the wing to make smooth …right??? I’m working on my sofa that has a gentle wing then cushions across the back. Having a hard time making the wing look smooth. Your work is beautiful thanks for posting it.

    1. Hi Cheryl,
      Yes, there is a tuck in space where the inner wing meets inner back. When I cut out the slipcover I added a tuck in allowance 2 to 3″ wide x the length of the inner wing and inner side. To make it look smooth I tuck it in without pulling down or up on the fabric.

  4. Thanks so much for your explanation on the wing back. I’ll get back to work on my sofa!

  5. Hi…I have the exact Ethan Allen chair which I am looking to get a slipcover for during my search ran across this posting…I love the slipcover would love this slipcover with a different fabric…How much would this cost and how long would it take? Thanks 🙂

    1. Hi Misty,
      Are you local to the Kalamazoo, MI area? I need your furniture to do the pin-fitting or an old slipcover I can take apart to make the pattern. I don’t have slipcover patterns for that chair or any other style. Thanks for your interest!
