'This is an elegnatly presented book that combines upholstery techniques with a strong focus on tools,fabric choices, design and style... The technique guides are very clear and well-illustrated and the book includes 12 case studies.'
'An almost biblical guide to the techniques and tools of the trade so you'll know what's going on every step of the way. You'll never again be lost for what a gimp pin is, when to use stockinette or what filling would be best for a lazy Sunday beached on the settee.'(Crafty)
'More than just upholstery technique. It's a fascinating insight into a new emergence of young upholsterers and their creative furniture ideas. It's a resource book for textile hoarders and an aspirational and inspirational upholstery guide. I'll say it again. I LOVE this book.'(Something Fine)
'So much more than a 'how-to' guide, it offers useful advice on understanding and choosing fabrics, step-by-step instructions on all the main upholstery techniques, plus inspirational stories from designers showing pieces they've transformed or their own homes. This engaging book will have you scouring junk shops for chairs to rescue and restore.'(Homes & Gardens)
