CHA Summer 2011: The Upholstery Studio

Spotted at The Upholstery Studio booth: kits to upholster your own customized tuffet!

So cute! What a great way to showcase a special embroidery or needlepoint project. I have some beautiful fabrics I could use to make my own lovely footrest!

With their neat kit, you can make a smooth top, or a tufted one.

They showed me how quick and easy it is to use this beautiful embroidery on heavy linen to upholster a smooth oval tuffet. This one doesn’t have its feet yet:


Included in the kit are high quality upholstery foam and bonded polyester batting that pulls easily without coming apart for stretching over upholstery forms


It was a simple process requiring only a staple gun and a few techniques outlined in the instructional DVD that ensure success.


Once you tackle this tuffet project, you can try one of their larger upholstery kits like this classy square ottoman tufted with leather:

or this round ottoman with customized coordinated fabrics:


The Upholstery Studio also offers kits for headboards and cornices:

These are amazing projects for fabric lovers like me! What do you think?
