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.

Coral Print Slipcover for Ethan Allen Chair

Coral Print Slipcover for Ethan Allen ChairWhat 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 From outdated plaid to contemporary coral print, this slipcover makeover dramatically changed the look of my customer’s Ethan Allen chair.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.
