We’re excited to announce that Austin’s own, Amanda Brown, will be at Cowgirls & Lace (Dripping Springs) on December 14 to celebrate her new book, SPRUCE: A Step-By-Step Guide To Upholstery And Design.
Amanda Brown left her day job to start Spruce, a furniture design studio in Austin, Texas. Her fresh aesthetic for interiors has garnered acclaim from publications that include the New York Times, Metropolitan Home, and Southern Living.
SPRUCE: A Step-By-Step Guide To Upholstery And Design is a complete course in the art of taking furniture down to it’s frame and restoring it with new upholstery. With over 900 step-by-step photographs guiding the way, anyone can learn what it takes to make a stodgy old chair into a beautiful addition to any room.
Designer Amanda Brown uses her own living room to illustrate the stunning effect upholstery can have on an interior or space.
Through the five featured projects, readers will learn the skills they need to creat one-of-a-kind pieces that reflect their own style. There are also chapters on interior design principles and how to sew throw pillows to accent re-upholstered pieces.
For those who love to discover hidden treasures in antique stores and flea markets, this is the book to help them transform their furniture finds into something spectacular.
So come down to Cowgirls & Lace on December 14 and get your signed copy of SPRUCE: A Step-By-Step Guide To Upholstery And Design
