Natural Fabrics: Simple and Stylish Soft Furnishings
Natural Fabrics shows you how to achieve a timeless, elegantly simple look in your home using "utility" fabrics. Arranged by seven key fabrics -- Muslin, Linen, Ticking, Utility, Checks and Stripes, Jacquard, and Masook -- each chapter includes details on the origins of the fabrics, practical information on durability and shrinkage, as well as lots of ideas on how to use them. Following are more than 25 smart and accessible room-by-room projects; the Linen Dining Room, for example, has instructions for a Roman blind, simple seat covers, a tablecloth, place mats, and napkins. Each project includes step-by-step instructions as well as gorgeous color photos and illustrations. Whatever the size or decor of you home, Natural Fabrics will show you how to achieve a look that will never be out of style.
