Tell Me Tuesday (Wednesday)…BAM or SLAM!? Buffalo Check

SLAM! for last week’s topic, Faux Painted Headboards

The majority of you felt real headboards were the way to go, painted ones were not a good alternative.

This week, let’s talk Buffalo Check!  I think it is a wonderful pattern.   It adds a little color and pattern to a space, but is still neutral.  It can be chic or country.  Last week, I pulled it for a client as an option to re-upholster her wing chair, unfortunately she was not as nearly excited about it as I am.

Are you a fan?

    BAM! Its classic and will be around forever. I personally am not overly drawn to it- but I can still appreciate it and love when its mixed with something more modern.

    Love, love, love Buffalo Check!!! Always a crisp addition!! What is the origin of the name for that pattern? Anyone know?

    I L.O.V.E. IT!
    But I’m surprised at how few people know what I’m talking about~
    even in fabric stores when I ask if they carry any and where to find it in their store.
    (same with hemp~?)
    A Big Buffalo BAM for me!

    Yep, it’s a classic! a Bam for me. I had picked up a few yards of a black and white buffalo check when Calico was running a sale and I’m waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it somewhere.
