Traditionally, Piping or Welting is a tape or covered cord sewn into a seam as reinforcement or trimming. But lets face it, there really isn’t a need to “line” everything. Although..it’s hard to resist adding an extra level of detail to solid-colored upholstery: a thin line of black or red on an off-white sofa, no matter what style, can make basic quite awesome. Case and point, check out these mini-Ektorp-look-alikes!

If you are looking to order slip covers, consider having piping done (TIP : do it on solid color base only, patterns make it look too busy). Contact us, we’ve every color under the sun!
