ALBURTIS, Pa., Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sure Fit Inc. (, the leading slipcover and home solution company since 1914, is proud to announce a major milestone, its 100th anniversary celebration.

Prior to the debut of Sure Fit, most furniture covers were expensive, made-to-order vinyl protectors created by furniture tailors.  These plastic covers left much to be desired in terms of fashion, function, and cost leading Sure Fit to introduce the "ready-made" slipcover category as we know it today. 

Now, a century later, Sure Fit continues to innovate with a full range of stylish and affordable slipcovers made to extend the life of existing furniture and create a fresh, redecorated look in any room. New "custom-fit" styles, designer patterns, and patented fit features are generating great excitement with do-it-yourself home decorators and interior designers alike. These ready-made, machine washable slipcovers make redecorating and seasonal updates simple and fun.

Key milestones in Sure Fit's first 100 years include:

  • 1914: Sure Fit opened for business.
  • 1940: Sure Fit joined the war effort and manufactured parachutes.
  • 1950: Sure Fit introduced the knit slipcover.
  • 1997: Sure Fit debuted its first slipcover catalog for home delivery.
  • 2006: Sure Fit revolutionized slipcovers with the introduction of the form fitting stretch knit slipcover.
  • 2006: Sure Fit introduced slipcovers specifically designed for box and T-cushion furniture.
  • 2009: Sure Fit entered the pet market with versatile protective furniture covers.
  • 2013: Sure Fit introduces Ultimate Heavyweight Stretch Suede; individual cushion covers make this the most custom slipcover to date.

In addition to Sure Fit's large selection of slipcovers, the company has also expanded its offerings to include a variety of home goods, including coordinating decorative pillows, rugs, lamps, furniture, pet solutions, bathroom accessories and outdoor covers to become the destination for a variety of home decorating needs.
