Spotlight on Slipcovers

Custom Slipcovers can change the look of a room instantly. Change the look of your room for the season. Protect upholstered furnishings from wear and tear, children and pets. Update the look of your upholstered furniture. Designers have been using custom-fitted slipcovers since the 1700s when Chintz fabrics made their way to France from China. In the 1980s, English designer Rachel Ashwell reinvented the slipcover with “Shabby Chic” style. Today’s designs offer everything from casual, loosely fitted covers to elegantly tailored custom-fitted covers.

At Elegant Changes, we design slipcovers that can be used on sofas, loveseats, occasional chairs, wing chairs, sectional furniture, ottomans and more. Aggie Falcone and Marisa McLennan, owners of Elegant Changes, started their decorating business creating unique custom slipcovers. Over the years, they have developed a full-service decorating business providing customers with all their decorating needs, from conception to completion. They continue to specialize in custom slipcovers.

Elegant Changes slipcovers are tailored to fit each piece. A uniquely fitted sheath covers the body of the upholstered piece. Each loose cushion is covered separately. This gives the piece of furniture an elegant “upholstered” look. There are no ties, no elastic, no bows, no pins – just an excellent fit!

By visiting the extensive resource centre at Elegant Changes or booking an appointment for an in-home consultation, you can begin the design process. Choose from a selection of over 5,000 fabrics. Talk to a slipcover specialist to determine the style that fits your decor. Place your order and a specialist will custom fit your furniture and construct the perfect custom slipcover for you.

Elegant Changes takes on the entire decorating process, from window coverings to slipcovers. What sets this team apart from the rest is their on-site fabric creations and focus on craftsmanship and commitment to quality. They don’t contract out any part of the job, something they are very proud of. Falcone and McLennan have an unmatched artistic vision when it comes to fabrics – everything from draperies to slipcovers and custom bedding.
