Abstract:

A revised edition of a best-selling classic! Every aspect of traditional and modern upholstery is covered in this encyclopedic survey of techniques and materials. Explore the entire construction process, from choosing tools and materials and making a frame to stuffing, covering, and trimming. Hundreds of line drawings and a selection of full-color photographs guide both serious beginners and experienced upholsterers through basic skills and on to crafting more advanced pieces, including chairs, sofas, and ottomans. Information on historical styles and techniques will be particularly useful to restorers. Five fully illustrated projects, ranging from a simple seat cushion to a larger chair, provide the opportunity for hands-on application of the techniques presented.
