Judy’s buffalo check slipcover and wing back chair are a match made in home decor heaven!
Bold, versatile and timeless, this classic combo is a keeper no matter the season or trend. As Judy put it, “It’s exactly what this (living) room needed. It pulls everything together.”
Fabric: Lyme Buffalo Check in color Black/Natural from Roth & Thompkins. A washable, medium weight cotton that works well for slipcovers that get moderate use.

My customer chose a two-tone cotton and linen basketweave fabric for her pair of wingback chairs and ottoman slipcovers. A great summer look!
Instead of using self fabric for the welt cord, I used natural linen. It reduced bulk and provided a subtle contrast. I also used the linen to create a decorative button detail on the back.
Hidden under the button flap is a zipper. It takes the stress off the buttons and controls the fit across the curved back.
I also gave these washable slipcovers short skirts and soft pleats around the arms and wings — little details that give the furniture a casual, relaxed look.
