Synopsis

Textiles are an important part of any interior, but one that is frequently overlooked in restorations. See how the author, Brian Coleman, uses vintage Victorian textiles to create a rich and inviting atmosphere. Period textiles on everything from Victorian footstools to portieres are given an inspiring display in the elegant photography by Linda Svendsen. A helpful description of the varied uses to which different textiles were put in the Victorian home will encourage readers to use authentic fabrics. Advice on the care and conservation of vintage textiles and a guide to establishing values is most useful to those seeking to purchase vintage Victorian textiles today. For designers and collectors alike, this is a feast for the eyes and a prod for authenticity.
