Here at CMF, we’re convinced loose covers are the best thing there is. Read our list of the top reasons why.

If you’re considering the CMF system, chances are you already have removable covers on your furniture, and we know that people opt for removable covers for a wide variety of reasons. We thought we’d round up the top reason why reinvesting in your furniture might just be the best choice you can make.

Washability: The main joy of removable covers is undoubtedly their machine washable design. For those who move from fixed upholstery to a washable cover, it’s a total game changer. No longer do you need to live in fear of having dinner on the sofa or letting your little one run riot with their arts and crafts kit. Any time your furniture is in need of a refresh, any of our covers can be popped in the washing machine and instantly livened up.

Nb. Always make sure to check the washing instructions for your furniture covers on its inside label. If you’re still not sure, drop us a line and we’ll be happy to help.

Seasonal switching: We’ve covered this before in our ‘Is my sofa ready to be recovered?’ blog, but it’s a point worth repeating. One of the great things about furniture covers is that they’re removable, meaning your sofa doesn’t have to be stuck in one look all the time. If you’re anything like me, your tastes will change as quick as your Instagram feed! Favourite colours might stay the same (or be dictated by your other décor), but the general vibe of your furniture can be completely switched up by material choice. We’re thinking out super soft Luxury Velvet is a winter winner, whilst a lighter, cotton design, such as Luxury Cotton Weave, would be our summer go to.

Budget friendly: Whilst luxury tailored covers like ours certainly aren’t cheap, they make a great alternative to buying new furniture. A high quality suite can set you back several thousands, and often when most people are ready for a change, it’s still in perfect nick structurally! Replacing the covers is a super smart way of getting the new, fresh from the showroom look you’re after, at just a fraction of the cost of replacing the entire thing. Here at CMF we can cover a wide range of furniture shapes and styles, including Multiyork, Parker Knoll, Ercol, Sofa Workshop, Loaf and so many more!

Time efficient: There’s two types of people when it comes to interiors: those who love heading down to the shops and those who hate it. Now, we love a good wander around our local businesses as much as the next person, but heading into the big furniture stores with salespeople pestering you every two seconds? Not our style. Replacement sofa covers allow you to keep the comfort and style of the furniture you love, whilst getting a totally new look. Just use our sample pack builder, wait for the post to arrive and make your choices in the comfort of your own home.

Get the look: We’ve saved the best until last on our list of reasons why sofa and chair covers are a great choice, and that’s the aesthetic of them! Whether you’re into scandi vibes or more of a farmhouse aesthetic, removable covers fit the bill.  We use your current removable covers to craft the new ones, so you can be sure of getting the same fit that’s tailored to the furniture you love.

We could go on for ever about the benefits of covers, and equally fixed upholstery does have its upsides too, but we’ll leave it at the essentials.
