Custom Slipcover for Pottery Barn Brooks Chair

Custom Slipcover for Pottery Barn Brooks Chair

Elise’s pair of Pottery Barn Brooks Chairs were used more by her dogs than her and her husband. “No more!,” she wrote, “we’re taking them back for ourselves!”

Right on, Elise!

I received her original slipcover to copy in a cotton print, Ikat Spots. It’s a home decor fabric of medium weight with a directional pattern that required matching. I’m not sure how it washes. This slipcover was made to dry clean only.

The Brooks is a slipper chair design with an attached seat cushion. The fitted cover pulls on (no zipper or Velcro closure) and has a flap style skirt. I kept the slipcover copy simple like the original with only one row of welt cord and minimal top stitching to finish the seams and hem.

  1. All I can say is WOW…working with Karen was a pleasure. Every aspect of the transaction was seamless. The attention to every detail from the shipping process, fabric selection and recommendation, construction and billing. I could tell as soon as I opened the box and found the handwritten thank you card that Karen had poured her heart into her work. I confirmed that fact when I felt the fabric and examined the stitching. The thread had all been trimmed to perfection on the inside of the cover. I was not surprised that the fit was perfect.

    My Crate and Barrel chair looks new again.

    Thanks Karen, I am a customer for life. Five stars all the way.
