This detailed guide simplifies the process of upholstering chairs and sofas, breaking down an often daunting task into a series of manageable steps. After summarizing the tools and materials involved, it guides you through eight simple exercises covering a range of essentials, from replacing webbing and springs to stitching fabric and leather coverings, and even weaving cane seats.
It also includes seven sample projects that teach you how to combine those skills to tackle more complex furniture pieces, from a classic armchair to a buttoned leather chesterfield. Whether you’re covering a new chair or restoring an old favorite, this book is a comprehensive resource.
