ALEX LAW    Book Number: 91948    Product format: Hardback

The techniques and materials of upholstery have evolved over the centuries to take on ever-more complicated nuances, but in its pure form, upholstery is a set of basic rules and similar methods that can be applied to many different chairs. The book breaks down the upholstery process and focusses on the tools and techniques required to produce generic types of pad that can be adapted to a myriad of different chairs, so whether you have inherited a masterpiece from the past, found a treat in a backstreet market, or conceived a new idea for yourself or simply fancy applying yourself to a worthy craft, follow the methods described in the book to help you create upholstery that stands the test of time and survives the rigours of use. Chapters cover tools and materials, suspension systems, building up the pad, waddings, top cover and trims and blueprint methods, plus suppliers and information and decorative finishes like nails and braid, borders and facings. Superbly well illustrated with colour diagrams throughout, full page colour photos and dozens of step-by-step diagrams in a splendid sturdy 256 page hardback.
