Mompreneur Monday- Rebecca Rabson

Becky 2

Rebecca is a mother to two wonderful, but incredibly messy, boys and the mom behind SmartSeat Chair Protectors– waterproof, stain resistant, and machine washable seat covers for upholstered chairs. SmartSeats protect like vinyl covers, but are made from soft, durable fabric that looks nice and is comfortable to sit on.

Rebeca’s “aha” moment came several years ago when her family purchased a new dining room set. She wanted to eat family meals together, but was concerned that her young boys would ruin her new upholstered chairs. She searched for a seat cover that would discreetly protect her upholstery from stains and spills, but she could not find anything that she liked. The only waterproof seat covers that she could find were made from vinyl or plastic. These covers looked unattractive, didn’t stay in place well, and were terribly uncomfortable to sit on. The only alternatives were either full slipcovers that completely changed the look of her chairs or very decorative damask covers that didn’t blend well into her decor.

Determined that there could be a seat cover that was both functional and attractive, Rebecca designed the SmartSeat Chair Protector. SmartSeats provide complete and discreet protection against stains, spills, and everyday wear and tear. The covers have adjustable straps that allow for easy on/off and a flexible sit on most sizes and styles of chairs, including those with side arms and solid backs. They can be thrown into the washing machine or spot cleaned for easy care. SmartSeats are available in five colors designed to complement most dining room and kitchen decor.


Though Rebecca invented the SmartSeat with her young children in mind, she’s since discovered that her seat covers have many unanticipated uses. The covers have been used by nursing homes and by those caring for elder parents or relatives to protect against, not only stains and spills, but also mild incontinence. Additionally, SmartSeats have been used in institutional settings, such as laboratories, offices, schools, and even U.S. Embassies.
