With special photography throughout, basic techniques are illustrated step-by-step, from stripping back to top stuffing to making cushions. 18 stunning projects are featured with varying skill levels, covering such diverse items as a G-plan chair, a sofa, a '70s flower-shaped stool, dining chairs, and headboards. Throughout Nicole Fulton demonstrates techniques using linen, satin, velvet, leather, cowhide, and other fabrics that give the furniture a unique contemporary look.
