Almost anything can be re-covered with new loose furniture covers, depending on where you purchase your covers.

Plumbs, for example, can cover close to anything whereas Bemz will only cover IKEA furniture. Ready-made covers can be used for many types of furniture, but will fit better on some rather than others.

For example, ready-made furniture covers could be a good option for a standard sized 2-seater sofa, yet made-to-measure would give a more precise fit and may be required for something a little more unusual such as a Chaise Lounge.


There are many different types and styles of furniture that can be covered. The types of furniture you can get loose covers for include, but are not limited to:

  • Sofas of varying sizes and styles: 2 seater sofas, 3 seater sofas, love seats, drop arm sofas, sectional sofas, and many more.
  • Chairs: winged chairs, club style chairs, recliner chairs and many more.
  • Sofa Beds
  • Chaise Lounges
  • Footstools/Pouffes
  • Dining Chairs
  • Conservatory Suites

You may be wondering if you need to go to a specialist for the particular style of furniture that you have, since we advise going to Bemz for IKEA furniture loose covers.

However, this is not always the case. Plumbs in particular boast a vast range of styles that they can and have made covers for. A handful of these are:

  • MultiYork
  • DFS
  • Parker Knoll
  • Duresta
  • Sofa Workshop
  • Next
  • Christie Tyler
  • Laura Ashley
  • M&S
  • Plus many more
Loose Covers can be used to re-new almost any style of furniture that you may have. It is always a good idea to opt for made-to-measure if you’re furniture is a particularly rare shape.

Or if you have more intricate furniture (with woodwork or beading for example), it may be worth considering a full reupholstery as opposed to loose furniture covers.

Plumbs also provide a comprehensive reupholstery service with all of the benefits of their Home Consultancy system.
