Buying a Loose Cover Sofa


Buying a sofa is a commitment, and choosing that perfect colour for your living room can be tricky. So wouldn't it be great if you could change the colour of your sofa as and when you please? No problem, you can – with a loose cover sofa!

Whether you are looking to recreate a trendy coastal style with our striped Newport sofa or add a touch of green withh a floral delight, there is a great variety of loose cover sofa designs. Here are some of our favourites.

What is a loose cover sofa?

Quite simply, loose cover sofas come with fully removable covers – yes that’s right, fully removable! A lot of people make the mistake of thinking that it’s just the seat and back covers that come off, but it’s everything, including the big frame cover. The covers are easy to get on and off.

What are the benefits of a loose cover sofa?

One handy thing about a loose cover suite is that the slipcovers can be removed for washing. All of our loose cover sofas have machine washable fabric, perfect if you have a busy family or pets. So as you can wash them at home, there’s no need to take them to the dry cleaners.

If you love changing your décor every few months but hate having to work around your sofas, then loose covers are the way forward. By buying a spare set when you order your furniture, or later when the season changes, you can update your look in a flash and be the envy of all your friends.

How to care for your loose covers

In order to keep your sofa covers looking in tip top condition, it’s best to follow the care instructions on the label. They don’t involve anything too hard, just clean them regularly (a quick hoover with the soft brush attachment will suffice), and keep them out of direct sunlight.

When it comes to washing them, all of our loose covers can be washed at 30 degrees and line dried – there’s nothing like seeing your covers flapping in the wind, as long as the sun’s out too of course. Don’t put them in the tumble dryer as they don’t like things too hot, and nobody wants creases that don’t come out.

What style of loose cover do I choose?

Sometimes too much choice can be a bad thing, but not when it comes to choosing a new sofa we think! But if you’re stuck deciding between colours, then buying a loose cover sofa is a great solution, because you can have one set on and a spare set stored away for when you fancy a change.

For a sleek and modern style, the Positano range will be just the ticket. This modern sofa is perfect for a family room, as there’s no need to worry about spillages when you can whip them into the washing machine at a moment’s notice.

If you have a traditional room setting or simply like a clean, classic style, then the Banbury range could be better suited to you. Our most popular sofa continues to keep finding new homes every week due to its versatility and good looks.
