In eye-capturing style, this essential new guide provides everything do-it-yourselfers, design students, and professionals need to prepare and create beautifully upholstered furniture. Featuring 250 dazzling color photos, it provides the lowdown on scouting the antiques market for perfect furniture; choosing the right tools and materials; and selecting from today’s innovative and vibrant fabrics—including finishes and trimmings, which are often the key to making or breaking a piece. Novice upholsterers learn a range of basic and complex techniques, from stripping back and top stuffing to springing and making cushions. Eighteen easy-to-master projects bring rewarding results, including a striking Arts and Crafts Easy Chair, sumptuous red suede box stool, soft leather ’60s G Plan Chair, sensuous shaped headboard, and elegant 19th-Century sofa. A Selection of the Homestyle Book Club.

Nicole Fulton runs Walnut, a company she set up offering antiques reupholstered in contemporary fabrics. Nicole, who was previously in marketing with Goldman Sachs Bank in London, travels extensively around Europe looking for pieces for reupholstering. She runs her business in association with various experienced upholsterers.From Booklist:
Once upon a time, the only ways to learn the finer points of upholstery were through an apprenticeship or a hands-on course (or two or three). Until British home-furnishings owner and creator Fulton and upholsterer Weston collaborated. Here, in a mere 176 pages, is the step-by-step information anyone needs to redo a sofa, a wing chair, even an ottoman--or to simply assess a vintage piece. The directions, though not succinct, leave little room for misinterpretation, starting with stripping back to making cushions, accompanied by color photographs, long captions, and cross-references. These basic instructions are followed by 18 projects, each posting its own set of challenges--a wing chair recovered in black-and-white stripes, a cowhide-upholstered ottoman, a dramatic fabric screen. The beginning chapters--on tools, materials, and fabrics--also live up to the top billing; charts, swatches, and numbered pictures more than adequately explain the what's what of seating.
