The Complete Upholsterer: A Pratical Guide to Upholstering Traditional Furniture
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.
