Style, Stitch, Staple by Hannah Stanton
Style, Stitch, Staple combines straightforward upholstery techniques with advice on choosing and styling fabrics to help the design-savvy reader transform even the most dilapidated furniture into gorgeous updated pieces. Offering a fresh, contemporary approach to the subject, this book is a refreshing alternative to other upholstery titles, which tend to be rather dry and technical.
Accompanied by vibrant illustrations, the book’s tutorials are not project specific. Instead, they show the reader how to learn skills like tufting, webbing, and piping which can then be applied to any item of furniture (such as a footstool or a headboard), rather than techniques that are specific to pieces (such as stuffing a dining chair). Packed full of fabric advice, yardage charts, upholstery tutorials, and case studies that feature salvaged and inexpensive furniture, Style, Stitch, Staple is the perfect go-to-guide for all creative homemakers looking to give their home that unique, personalized, and utterly stylish look.
- Tutorials are illustrated with clearly labeled and specially commissioned diagrams
- Case studies provide inspiration and valuable insights into the challenges faced by other non-professionals
- Packed full of money and time saving tips, making this a truly viable hobby for creative home enthusiasts
