Slipcover for Dual Reclining Loveseat With Center Console?

Does anyone know where I can purchase a slipcover for a dual reclining loveseat with a center console? I have looked everywhere and can't find anything remotely close. Sewing one is "not" an option, as I have no talent for that at all.

If all else fails, has anyone tried covering a loveseat like mine with a normal loveseat cover? Does/would it look stupid with the console poking up through the fabric?

Any input would be so appreciated. Our dogs tore up the side of our loveseat and we can't afford to have it reupholstered right now, but we are so tired of looking at their handy work!

You can tack a matching or complimentary piece of heavy duty fabric or upholstery fabric to the damaged side, look for something in the remnants bin at the fabric store or on the remnants pages at JoAnn, Hancocks, or a similar fabric site to save money.

Measure the area you need to hide and add 1/2" to a full 1" all around-this is the size fabric 'patch' that you'll need. After you find it and bring it home, fold over the raw edges that 1/2"-1" extra, then use a tack gun or hammer in upholstery tacks to hold the fabric onto the frame. Don't be afraid to use a lot of tacks to get a taut application.

Depending on the dogs and quality of fabric, this should last you several years.

There are upholstery shops that can redo the entire sofa, or you can search the classifieds and bulletin boards for a seamstress who can make custom machine washable slip covers-consider having at least two sets made so that you have a set to put on whilst the other is in the laundry.

And do consider learning to sew and make your own slipcovers-they actually aren't that hard to do if you take your time and measure carefully, and you can save hundreds on the cost. Here's a good teaching site to have a look at:

They sell them on Amazon. Not a big selection but the prices are comparable.

A cheap slipcover for lazyboy recliner is... those tee-shirt material sheets. A single fitted sheet size will fit one lazy boy recliner/rocker. Since you have the divider in the middle, you might get two, one for each side instead of a full size sheet. The single fitted sheet fits the chair and you could use the flat sheet to cover the ends the dogs have customzed for you. You could do a little creative folding to make the flat sheets to fit. Regular fabric sheets were my first choice but the tee-shirt fabric is SO comfortable.

I was recently thinking the exact same thing u were regarding how to cover my Dual Reclining Loveseat w/ Center Console..!! And I searched & searched ALLLLLL Over the Internet 4 a cover 2 buy or some sort of solution...only 2 come up empty handed each & every time I searched!! It became TRULY EXHAUSTING!!

Finally, after giving up my search & much Creative Thinking & Brainstorming...I finally found this site, with this feed! I thought 2 myself, YES, this person had the SAME IDEA as me!! So I figured, what did I have 2 lose...?? Couple bucks if it didn't work & an end 2 my frustration, IF, I just threw in the towel!! Lol
Sooooo, ANYHOW....I'd like 2 add MY UPDATE 2 this Post..........
IT WORKED!!
IT WORKED!!
IT WORKED PERFECTLY!
**************************
HERE'S WHAT U NEED 2 BUY.....
2 matching Recliner SlipCovers
1 Long Dining Room Chair SlipCover
(Has 2 b one like u would get for a Wedding or such. A-N-D...Has 2 b SPANDEX! Or atleast MOSTLY SPANDEX bcuz its going 2 work but its going 2 b a TIGHT (Stretch & Pull) FIT..!!
1 Kitchen Chair Seat Pad Cover (for the Hinged Lid of the Middle Console)

I, personally, ordered all Navy Blue & was definitely worried bcuz they didnt all come from the same company or maker!

But it still worked out beautifully!
**********
NOTE:
When it came 2 the MIDDLE STORAGE SPACE...I unscrewed it from the Hinges & removed the lid. Then, I took the spadex covering the cubby hole & just pulled on it & stretched the spandex as much as i could & then place a sturdy piece of cardboard down in2 it, cut 2 fit very snuggly, so it would keep the spandex pushed down in it w/o popping out. Lastly, I replaced the Lid, Screwing it back onto the Hinges! (small, teenie tiny punctures were made by the screws as they passed thru the fabric)
Cover the Lid with the Kitchen Chair Seatpad Cover
When it came 2 the CUP HOLDERS...I just lifted out the plastic inserts beforehand & after it was covered pushed them down back into place, on top of the spandex cover!
***NO HOLES HAD 2 B CUT or MADE ANYWHERE****
A-N-D...THAT'S IT! A Gorgeous, PERFECTLY Fitting Slip Cover 4 ur DUAL RECLINING LOVESEAT w/ CENTER CONSOLE!!

I have the same problem and after hours of searching I have decided to use two reclining chair slipcover and tuck the unused arm between seat and console. For console I will cover/ sacrifice the cupholder and cover everything with same slipcover made for long dining room chair. Once I do this I will update if it worked or not.

You could try getting a sofa cover that will fit the length/width of your loveseat and then cutting a slit or two (just enough) for the console to fit through.

I took a large fitted sheet put it over and then cut slits to get into the cup holders and the middle console area but the material moves whenever we sit so the slits that I cut look really bad and don't stay in place.

I bought two high back recliner pet covers and tucked the extra arms down between the two bottom cushions. The ones I bought were rubber back so they don't slip on my leather loveseat.

Did that work and did the rubber do any damage to your leather loveseat ?

I had a dual reclining loveseat with a consul, so I bought two single recliner covers and they worked well. Right now I need a dual reclining sofa cover and faded chic has sold out of both styles.
