Overview

With 15 easy to follow, fabulously illustrated step-by-step projects, this book is just what the beginning upholsterer needs. The first eight items—including a drop-in-bottom chair, overstuffed seat, and box cushion—teach the fundamental techniques required to tackle any upholstery task that might arise. After that, it’s time to get more creative, with a beautiful Art Deco armchair, chaise longue, leather chesterfield, and more. Each project includes a list of tools and materials, a quick overview of the key skills, and tip boxes to make the work go more smoothly.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Save your old sofa or stuffed chair by reupholstering it. This book outlines the process clearly and concisely, with wonderfully detailed illustrations and photos for every step of the way. Sowle and Dye, craftspeople from England with their own upholstery web site (www.oldsofas.com), handle the topic expertly, covering basic techniques, tools, and materials. The layout is crisp and cohesive, which results in an attractive book. Although this is essentially a British publication, with lists of overseas suppliers, comparable materials and tools are available in the United States. Good for beginners; recommended for public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
