SLIPS AND CASES

Slipcovers date back as far as the seventeenth century. “Cases” as they were called then, were used to keep expensive surfaces clean, shield them from the sun and protect the more luxurious upholstery from wear and tear. Aesthetically they served many functions too. Outdated upholstered furniture was updated with new slipcovers in a fashion-forward fabric choice. Or as often was the case, the slipcovers could unify a room of mismatched pieces.

Interesting enough, historically, loosely fitted slipcovers were often constructed of linens and cottons. Tailored “cases” were typically made from finer textiles-worsted wool to velvet, brocatelle and needlepoint. Silks were often used, even leather. Glazing the fabrics, according to textile historians, was an early form of stain repellent thereby helping in repelling dust and spills.

I personally have loved and used slipcovers on furniture and skirts on tables all these years because they add so much versatility in look and liveability. As a mother, dog lover and frequent hostess, the “wash and wear” factor is and always has been an enormous selling point for me! A final point on the advantages of cases and covers-…..
Wouldn’t you rather remove and launder than reupholster???
