Giving Martha The Slip

The Martha Washington chair is timeless. Inspired by eighteenth-century design, Martha is probably one of the most iconic (and versatile) chairs we offer. We love her as is, and we love how easy it is to update her classic style with a slipcover.

First, we designed the slipcover pattern to show off Martha’s graceful lines and year-round upholstered fabric underneath, then we chose a lighter-weight cotton Toile du Jouy fabric to get this delicate look. How easy is that? It’s almost like tying on an apron!


Pretty ties. Slim self-lined ties are long enough to create lovely bows.

Tuck it in. Keep the slipcover neatly in place by tucking it in between the seat and back.

Tailored detail. The slipcover edges are welted for a beautiful finishing touch.
