Traditional upholstery skills are still much in demand for both new furniture and for refurbishing treasured antiques. And this extensively illustrated hands-on guide teaches would-be professionals all the crucial techniques they need to have a successful career. It begins with an overview of the required tools and how to use them, and explains the fundamentals of internal spring and suspension systems, fillings and stuffings, fabrics, and other supporting mechanisms. Novice upholsterers can test their new abilities on seven attractive projects, including a stuffed and stitched dining chair, modern deep-buttoned stool, charming child’s chair, day bed, and more. Each step is shown in full color photographs, from preparing the frame and attaching the webbing to applying foam or felt and adding pleats, knots, trim, and adornments.
