Slipcovers get you options to have two looks for the price of one. If you have a pattern go with a solid fabric or if your have a floral print go with a stripe.

Slipcovers come off easy and can be machine washed or dry cleaned. At La Costa Upholstery we can make your slipcovers fitted or loose and can add fill to the cushions to make them firmer. We have hundreds of fabrics to chose from in our showroom.

Here is a great article on slipcovers from one of our manufacturers, Greenhouse Fabrics.

The next thing to look for in fabrics is the fiber content. Not all fibers wear the same, some fibers peel and look fussy. Some look more plastic than cloth and feel rough, not soft, and not comfortable. Many lower cost fabrics are made of low grade fibers that don’t wear well. They look old and tired in a short time. 

Better fibers like rayon, cotton and polyester look better over the long term. Their colors are more vibrant with better color separation and more defined patterns. These fibers also wear much better and look better longer. So invest in better fabrics and your upholstery will wear well, look and clean better and last longer.

Come by our showroom and see the new fabrics for both in door and out door upholstery, we have the largest selection of upholstery sample books in North County , and with over 40 years of experience we can help you find the fabrics that will work best for you.

Slipcovers - La Costa Upholstery

The furniture you already have is better then most of the new furniture you find in the store today. Over the years furniture went from being made in the USA out of hard wood and having real springs to today where it’s made in China with elastic webbing and “engineered wood”.

What is engineered wood? Well it’s a new term for plywood or particle board. The term engineered wood sounds like someone from MIT came up with a new way to grow super trees, but it’s just plywood. And that’s not what good furniture is made of it’s “junk”.

Sure the furniture looks good in the store, but when you get it home and use it; the frame will start to sag ,the webbing  stretches,  and you find the cushions get flat. And in a year your new furniture needs help , new foam in the cushions ,new springs or more.

So save yourself lots of money and get your furniture reupholstered or slip covered and have something worth owning that will last for years. La Costa Upholstery is San Diego’s best choice for reupholstery and slip covers . We have the largest fabric sample selection in the area. Call, email or come by the shop.

If that sofa or chair of yours is needs a little lift. If the cushions have flattened out, it’s time for new foam in the cushions.

Most of the time it’s just a matter of unzipping the covers and replacing the old foam with new firmer foam and polyester. We can breath life into those old cushions and make that sofa or chair look and feel like new.

Now foam comes in many firmness and you have to make sure that you get the
type that will last and keep it’s shape. If you go with a foam that isn’t resilient enough it will just flatten out in a short time.

So ask about the different types of foam and ask to see and feel samples of the foam. The difference in foam type can be felt and seen. Just email us your cushions sizes and we can get back to you with with a price . Not all foam is made the same.
