The Soft Furnishings Source Book by Leslie Geddes-Brown
This is a beautiful book that explores every aspect of using soft furnishings in the home. Whether you long for the fresh, muted tones of Swedish minimalism or plan to upholster your sofa and armchairs in traditional toile de Jouy, this book will help you to make your vision a reality. The first chapter, on Fabric Styles, includes a host of images showing how the various types of fabric - from wools and velvets to suedes and leathers - create a distinctive look and feel in a room. The Components considers the various elements of soft furnishings, including curtains, loose covers, cushions and bed treatments, and offers advice about how to find your way through the multitude of choices. Room By Room shows how these elements can be brought together into cohesive decorative schemes.
