A tome of design, inspiration, and how-to, this substantial book is the one-stop resource for anyone looking to learn the fine art of furniture upholstery. With all of the techniques taught through step-by-step illustrated instructions of five projects, including a Louis chair, a slipper chair, a wingback chair, a full-sized sofa, and an ottoman, students will acquire all the skills they need to go out and create one-of-a-kind pieces designed to suit their taste. There are also chapters on interior design principles and how to sew throw pillows. With Amanda Brown’s living room as the backdrop, readers can see first-hand how her aesthetic and upholstery design transform a bare room into something wonderful.
There is no other upholstery book like this on the market today. With over 900 photographs and step-by-step instructions, the five projects included in the book are designed to teach all the skills one needs to become a master upholsterer.
