Summary

This revision is devoted entirely to textiles for interiors and provides comprehensive and complete coverage of essential topics. Beginning with a primer on textile fibers, the content ranges from basic textiles to end-products used in residential and commercial interiors, including textile and non-textile upholstery fabrics, window coverings, drapery linings, textile wall coverings, soft floor coverings and cushions, and household and institutional textiles. Numerous photographs and illustrations bring these concepts to life. This text includes pedagogy such as case studies, key terms, review questions, and an extended glossary.
