Mastering Light Upholstery with Slipcovers
Scroll through Instagram or Pinterest these days, and you’ll quickly see that light, bright upholstery has captured the hearts and living rooms of some of the most influential interior designers and bloggers.
But translating this look to reality has been a common question from our customers. Visions of muddy paws, rambunctious children, and red-wine spills can scare off even the most intrepid designer. So how can you bring this gorgeous trend home? One word: Slipcover.
Since its heyday in the 1950s - think vinyl covered chintz couches - the slipcover has been the unsung hero of families looking to easily maintain their spaces. Simply slip off your sofa’s fabric cover, pop it in the wash, and your piece looks as good as it did the day it was delivered.
So when Maiden Home introduced their first slipcovered style in the summer of 2018, we wanted to bring a modern sensibility to this practical favorite: the perfect pairing of easy maintenance and contemporary design. The Dune’s perfect balance of style and substance made it an instant best-seller and favorite of interior designers, bloggers, and customers alike.
“The clean lines and crisp white linen spoke to my minimalist heart but it wasn't until I found out that this fabric is also kid and pet proof that I about died! The sofa and fabric has been amazing for our busy family.” - Anissa Zajac, House Seven Design
So it was only natural that our first product launch in 2019 would be an extension of this coveted collection: The Dune chair and a half. Roomy, generous proportions make this the seat for curling up with a great book or a glass of wine.
The Dune collection is offered in Performance Linen, a fabric striking the ideal balance between form and function. Common spills like soda, tea, even red wine, will bead up on the surface of the fabric to be wiped away. Worried about a bigger mess? The Dune’s slipcover is machine washable, so just slide it off the piece’s frame and wash on cold and you’re good to go.
