White Slipcovers with Mini Knife Pleats

I had a lot of fun working with my latest client. She wanted all white slipcovers with some cute knife pleat details. The wooden arm chair slipcover was inspired by a picture of a slipcover on the Country Living Magazine website.

Her home is going to be featured in the 2009 Biennial Holiday Homes Tour in Findlay, OH.

The slipcovers turned out beautiful!!

Here are some before and after photos. I included close up photos of the knife pleat details.

These Ethan Allen wingchairs were a real challenge to slipcover with the exposed wood and open backs. They have kind of a french country feel to them. I am so happy the way the slipcovers turned out. They are sooooooo beautiful! They are my favorite slipcovers so far.

Here is a picture of the open back with ties.
