Furniture Sun & Dust Covers:
Preserve and Protect Fine Furniture


The Sun’s Ultra Violet Rays will Damage Your Furniture.

The sun is very powerful and its penetrating rays damage wood furniture and good upholstery. FURNITURE SUN & DUST COVERS are chemical free 100% cotton dust sheets that protect and shield upholstered and wooden furniture from sunlight, dust and pets.

Dust particles are almost invisible but settle on upholstery. They expand and contract with humidity and harden. Their sharp edges create tears in fabric.
The combination of dust and sunlight can ruin your upholstered furniture. Wood furniture, left exposed to the sun, can fade and develop cracks if not protected.

Highly versatile—these loose dust covers fit a wide range of furnishings. Made from 100% cotton, they are unbleached and undyed and meet textile conservation standards.

If you have a weekend home, FURNITURE SUN & DUST COVERS provide excellent protection during the week or when the house is closed for a longer period of time.

In addition, if you have pets living with you––or just visiting––these dust sheets are an excellent way to keep pet hair off your best furniture.

    Butlers Had the Secret!

    Butlers in English Country Houses traditionally used dust covers—called dust sheets—to protect furniture, preserve important upholstery and to cover valuable antiques. The protective techniques developed by butlers and housekeepers is one of the reasons why the great collections in British Stately Homes still exist today!

    In the spring, when families left their country estates and moved to London for the immensely important social season, the Butler, the Housekeeper and their staff would “put the house to bed.”

    Staff cleaned and scrubbed the house from top to bottom. They placed loose cotton dust sheets on all the furniture. Shades were drawn, rugs beaten and rolled up. Sculptures and paintings were covered with dust sheets as well.

    Conservators in Stately Homes managed by The National Trust and English Heritage still follow the practice of “putting the house to bed” covering all the upholstery and fine furniture when the season for visitors has come to a close. Learn more about how The National Trust "puts the house to bed."

    The Butler's Closet FURNITURE SUN & DUST COVERS are museum quality dust covers that provide a critical barrier from the harmful rays of the sun and minimize dust and dirt.
