Rough Estimates (for modern Furniture)

  • making standard slipcover styles on furniture that is in good condition
  • when you purchase your fabric from us at the time the order is written and use our plain or allover pattern fabrics*.
  • There is also an additional charge for supplies used in the slipcover process
  • There is an additional cost when using Customer's Own Materials. For more info, go here: Using Customer's Own Fabric)
  • The actual labor prices and yardages amounts could be different for your furniture. (See details at the bottom of this page.)
  • These prices do not include unusual furniture or antiques, which are priced on an individual basis.
