Charming florals or cool abstract patterns? White-on-white or a splash of brilliant color? Just like clothes make the man, fabric makes the furniture. House Beautiful understands that, and so the editors are letting sofas, chairs, settees, ottomans, lampshades, and more put on a "fashion show." As in the magazine feature, witness how furniture can be completely transformed using several different fabrics. The magazine's experts explain exactly how the choice of color and pattern affects the furniture's appearance. For example, stripes on a sofa highlight the couch's shape and give it a contemporary flair, while a floral pattern de-emphasizes the form and adds traditional country charm. A range of styles are included. Details on fabric content, technical terms, decorating pitfalls, and upholstering tips make this the ideal reference.
