STEP 3. CHOOSE YOUR MATERIALS...

Traditional Upholstery:


Made using traditional methods and materials.

We first start with black and white herringbone webbing, hessian is then added on top of the webbing adding additional strength. Coir or a hair mix is then rolled and tied into place using stuffing ties. Cotton felt is then positioned on top of the coir/hair mix adding another layer of padding. The stool will then be finished with a FR barrier cloth before being upholstered with your chosen top coat fabric. 

Contemporary Upholstery:

Made using contemporary materials. 

Foam is placed on top of a wooden base, used to create the first layer of padding. Dacron is then positioned on top of the foam. The stool will then be finished with a FR barrier cloth before being upholstered with your chosen top coat fabric.

Piping

Piping can be used to add definition and detail to a footstool. Self piping is piping made up in the same fabric as the top coat fabric. An alternative option would be to use a contrast piping if you wanted the piping to stand out.

Close Nails

Traditionally used to cover the edge of the material on furniture. The close nails are pushed into place using a lightweight upholstery hammer. Looks great above the top of our traditional leg.
