Including over 50 projects to transform and revitalize furniture, this guide shows how to liven up a wide range of furniture in the home, making it more comfortable and decorative. Each piece of upholstery in the book has been specially designed by the author, who uses her knowledge of contemporary fabrics and trimmings - such as buttons, bows and piping - to finish each piece with a flourish. The first three chapters explore traditional upholstery techniques, from the bare frame to the fully upholstered piece, dealing with webbing, padding and tying in springs. Each important step has been photographed as it happens in order to visualize the sequence to accompany the precise written instructions. The next five chapters show how the quicker, modern upholstery methods can provide new finishes to window boxes, baskets and headboards. The chapter on modern style shows upholstery projects in ten different rooms designed by the author.
