Anyone shopping for a slipcover for their old, dated Crate & Barrel couch will tell you – it’s expensive.
You could buy nearly half (or more) of a brand new CB couch for the price of just the fabric. To make matters worse, delivery takes up to two and a half months from order to the doorstep. And that’s if it hasn’t been discontinued.
There goes the “new” couch in time to please the friends & relatives.
But what else is there to do? No one else makes them.
Or is there?
Fear not my sofa loving friends, we are here to help.
Who are you guys anyway?
“But wait, who are you guys anyway?”
Comfort Works specializes in crafting tailor-made, form fitting slipcovers. We’re like the tailors you would hire for a custom made suit – but for sofas.
That’s basically all we do here.
For over 8 years we have been re-covering the world’s dated sofas and have saved more than 30,000 sofas from becoming landfill.
Most of the time, we get orders for IKEA sofas and have made a small reputation for making slipcovers better than the original. So we’re always excited to get enquiries from rarer brands.
But no matter what sofa we work with, we’ll make a slipcover that will look good and feel good, guaranteed.
If that sounds like an overstatement, check out our Instagram page to see some of our work. Most of which were taken from the living rooms of our very own customers!
Will it fit?
“Will the slipcovers be a perfect fit for my Crate & Barrel sofa?”
We are confident that it will. We stake our world-class reputation on it.
In fact, we’ve already covered a handful of CB sofas and have the measurements ready to roll for several models:
They can be ordered on our site at the click of a button and will fit beautifully, just like they have on the sofas from our customers.
Speaking of our customers, here’s some of our work, sent to us straight from their living rooms:
If we don’t have dimensions of your particular sofa model in our database, we’ll work with you to get your sofa measured. This involves:
- Sending us photos of your sofa and its model (for us to make sure we can slipcover it)
- Ordering fabric samples (so you can pick a fabric that you’ll love)
- Ordering your cover (you’ll be assigned an expert to guide you in getting your sofa measurements)
- Working with us to measure your sofa
- Sit back and relax! (we’ll take it from here and get your cover created)
Of course, we’ll be holding your hand throughout the measurement process and triple check the measurements so we can deliver a slipcover that fits your Crate & Barrel to a tee.
And if it doesn’t; we’ll fix it for you, whether by sending over new covers or by offering a reimbursement. That’s our secret to maintaining a stellar reputation on the most trusted review sites.
But rest assured, we usually get things right on the first try. We’ve helped hundreds of custom and even antique couches find a new life.
In fact, you may be surprised to hear that we do slipcovers for CB sofa models that CB themselves do not make slipcovers for.
What sofa models do you slipcover?
“You guys can make slipcovers for couches that Crate & Barrel can’t!?”
That’s correct! We’re pleased to say that we make slipcovers for more CB sofa models than CB themselves.
Well that’s because instead of just producing slipcovers for the usual CB slipcovered sofas, we also create slipcovers for some of their upholstered sofas.
This works by creating a cover that slips over any upholstered parts of the sofa (frame, cushions, etc) while creating cushion covers as per usual for zippered cushions.
For example, this leather upholstered chaise lounge has been slipcovered in that way:
What Crate & Barrel models do we slipcover you ask?
The ones that we work with can be found on our site’s Crate & Barrel page (of course).
Here are some of them:
But even if you don’t see your model listed, it doesn’t mean we can’t do it.
After all, we’re pretty good at measuring and getting couches slipcovered so don’t hesitate to shoot us an email to check if your Crate & Barrel can be covered.
“When can I expect to receive my slipcovers?”
Unless there’s a global crisis stopping us from getting your covers to you, we do our best to get them over within 4-5 weeks from the time of order.
Of course, this will be discussed in detail when you place an order and we’ll let you know if we expect delays for any reason.
“So how much will it cost to cover my couch?”
Naturally, the price to slipcover your sofa would depend on the sofa model, size, and type. The good news however is that our prices are always cheaper than original Crate & Barrel covers (which tends to cost anywhere between 40-60% of the price of the sofa in question).
In short, you can expect a one to two hundred dollar difference between the original covers and the covers we make.
Decor fans in particular would be delighted to hear that there are more fabrics, customizations and styles to choose from to really personalise the look of your sofa.
But wait! It gets better.
If you’re lucky enough to own a sofa that we don’t have ready measurements for (meaning we will need your help in working with us to measure your sofa), you’ll also enjoy a special discounted rate.
That’s right, Instead of charging more for the extra work it takes to help measure your sofa, we instead charge less. After all, you’ll be involved in the process as well.
This is what you can expect to pay if we need to measure your sofa. Prices start from:
So if you have a CB couch that needs covering, check us out and see if you’re one of the first to get your sofa model slipcovered!
And even if you’re not, you’ll still save a nifty couple of hundred compared to ordering from Crate & Barrel, and enjoy much faster shipping and style choices.
