The forgotten history: Upholstery Conservation
Linköping University, University Services.
2011 (English)Collection (editor) (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Research on upholstery work from a culturally historical and technical conservation perspective is a relatively new field. Previously the important aspects regarding furniture have focused on design and the work of joiners – rather than the upholstery work. This book is a result of the first international conference in Europe with focus on the upholstery history. The symposium addressed the conservation of upholstery work and the history of filling materials and techniques. The conference was held in Vadstena, Sweden and hosted by Linköping University.

During the symposium, a number of studies were presented and discussed. We now have the pleasure to be able to release the results of those studies in this book.

By publishing this material, it is our hope that The Forgotten History of Upholstery, will be a little less forgotten!
