Cushion Covers

Post by Derekscoopers » Tue, 27 Aug 2013, 6:59 pm

Having started our wish list we wanted to have vinyl covers on the main cushions and were surprised by the quotations we were receiving !! however I chanced upon an e-bay item offering upholstery for caravans etc.

Contacted the seller and was more than happy with the offer that came back, initially their quote was for brown vinyl or two colour vinyl in certain colours but of course not in the colours we wanted, however I have listed below the brown or two tone quote.

72"x24"x3" vinyl cover with zip only £32 each
24"x24"x3" vinyl cover with zip only £25 each

So roughly a couple of hundred to do all cushions, I dont think thats bad.

I expect it will be a bit more in the colour we want but I would think not a lot more.

Derek,

Although the brochures state the cushions were 24" by 24", they were actually smaller and rectangular, I think it's been mentioned before on the forum but you need them smaller otherwise they won't fit properly when you pack away.

Also, are you sure you want to have vinyl covers? Whilst they'll be practical, personally I wouldn't want to sleep on them, they'll be very sweaty. I'd go for a traditional upholstery material in a good retro print if you can find it.

Thanks for reminding us about sweaty sleeping, didn't even give it a thought, your right of course doesn't sound good so I am sure we will find something in a similar colourway but more suitable material.

Derek
