From formal fixed to loose, washable options whatever you need - we've got you covered.

Fixed Sofa Covers

fixed sofa covers

Fixed covers are generally quite smart in appearance and can’t be removed for cleaning. But don’t worry about not being able to wash them, they can be cleaned in situ. We offer an excellent 5 year fabric protection plan against grubby hands and accidental spills.

Removable Covers

removable sofa covers

Sofas with removable covers have a slightly less formal look but are great for people who have kids or pets. You can remove the whole cover for fuss-free sofa cleaning, including seat cushions, back cushions and body. We would always advise that you take your covers to the dry cleaners or have them cleaned in situ by a professional and don’t try to wash them at home. Some of our sofas have removable covers as standard, and on others it’s an option.

Taylored Removable Covers

tailored removable sofa covers

All the benefit or removable covers, only smarter looking! Covers are fixed using Velcro which descreetly fits under the base of the sofa. Some of our sofas have tailored removable covers as standard, and on others it’s an option. To find out more visit your nearest shop or get in touch.
