The Essential Guide to Upholstery Total Hits - 234  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (0)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
I received this book yesterday and cannot put it down. The pictures, drawings and advice are fantastic. I am very interested in upholstery projects for my home and am ready to move from a "beginning Intermediate" level to "Intermediate". This book is just what I needed for more guidance. I have an extensive collection of upholstery books, and except for "Simply Upholstery" and the "Singer Upholstery Basics" books, I have been mostly disappointed with the books I have received as they were not helpful or showed unrealistic projects. This book is like being in an upholstery class with a smart, interesting teacher. I hope Dorothy Gates writes more books on this subject. I would certainly buy it!!

The kitchen is the heart of the home, the ideal place to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee, an informal gathering, or an intimate conversation. It is also a complex organism in which numerous independent systems must work in harmony to minimize the energy required to prepare meals and clean up afterwards. Few rooms see so much activity; fewer still challenge designers with such an array of practical, technological, and esthetic considerations. The successful kitchen designer creates a warm, pleasant atmosphere while solving problems of storage capacity, accessibility, functionality, ventilation, lighting, safety, and durability.

Hundreds of design details, descriptive technical photos, and useful checklists help you make the most of all the information provided. Reliable data, proven techniques, and helpful tips prepare you to tackle every aspect of kitchen design, including

  • Electrical systems, lighting, and plumbing
  • Fixtures and appliances
  • Cabinetry, floor coverings, counter tops, and other equipment and materials
  • Drawing and presentation standards for the kitchen professional
  • Cost estimating
  • Space planning
  • Kitchen-related building codes
  • And more

The Fabric Quantity Handbook: For Soft Furnishings Total Hits - 274  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (0)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating

'The Fabric Quantity Hand Book - Imperial' Simple-to-use for estimating curtain fabric quantities quickly and accurately. Also includes estimation tables for valances, pelmets, swags, blinds, bed valances, covers and much more. Available in metric and Imperial measurements. merrick-day.com

This book is designed to make the task of estimating fabric quantities for curtains, accessories and trims easier and more accurate. The tables have been formulated as the result of our experience making bespoke soft furnishings. However, when estimating for specific designs, the quantities given may need to be adapted and so should only be used as a guide.

Maybe I missed it, but nowhere in the description did I read that this ENTIRE book is in METERS!! V. helpful for design prof's outside of the US, but every chart has to be converted for those of us stuck in the English system of measure. It would be HEAVEN if the book had been published w/both yards and meters. Oh well, writing conversions in the margin is a good "slow day" project.
