This is the most comprehensive practical guide to upholstery ever published. It brings all the techniques of the craft, from the simplest to the most sophisticated, within everyone's reach. Including a detailed rundown on the basic procedures, tools, and materials, it demonstrates ten upholstery projects ranging from the easy (a chair with a slip seat) to difficult (a chesterfield sofa). An illustrated history of upholstery explores the development of technique and style. Throughout, there is a stimulating emphasis not only on how to upholster, but why, in terms of good styling and satisfying design.
