In eye-capturing style New Upholstery gives you everything you need, and more, in order to prepare and inspire you to create beautifully upholstered furniture, beginning with sections on finding furniture, tools, materials, and fabrics - including finishes and trimmings, which are often the make-or-break of a piece. With special photography throughout, basic techniques are illustrated step by step, from stripping back to top stuffing to making cushions, before the reader is taken through 18 projects covering such differing items as an Arts and Crafts easy chair, a large Victorian sofa, a box stool, and headboards. Beautiful technical illustrations and a suppliers directory complete this practical guide. Presented with clarity and vibrancy and with text by an author passionate about the beauty of furniture, whether you plan to give a new lease of life to a shabby easy chair or prefer instead to create a little luxury with leather club chairs, New Upholstery is the essential practical companion that will see you every step of the way.
