The retail concessionaire in furniture upholstery should get used to recognizing the qualities in upholstery furniture bought from the manufacturer, since in no other work line it is possible to pass the lower products so easily. The royal upholstery is completely covered in a finished chair or sofa, and often two finished chairs will seem exactly similar in the external appearance, however, one will exceed the other several times.
It is sure to say that 90% of wholesale manufacturers do not provide the best degree of material and labor in the products they sell. First, all upholstery frames must be made of ashes. The portions exposed alone, such as feet or arms, must be made of the required decorative wood, such as oak, mahogany or walnut, etc.
The tapes that defend the springs and the corner protectors must have four inches wide, and the best rating has four red threads that are executed in parallel to approximately half an inch of each edge. The lower degrees are narrower, with blue and black threads on the edges instead of red.
The straps must be well-stretched and intertwined and must be stuck with seven studs at each end. If good straps are used, it can usually be taken for granted that better quality goods are used at all times. The tape can be examined by starting a corner of the black Cambrian cover under the chair.
The next element to examine in an upholstered piece is the GIMP that covers the studs. This should be of good quality and well stuck, firm, and flat, instead of being attached to the frame.
The strongest springs must be in the middle of the seat, the weakest in the rear, and the balance in the front and the sides. The best rating of the springs has the ends of the springs knotted to the next loop, the lower degrees do not, the ends are simply cut along with the corner protector.
The advantage of knotted spring is that it cannot relax or let go of its fixation and gradually slide through the furniture upholstery material. The springs must be Japanese or enameled. Each spring must be tied in six places with a firm knot instead of a simple loop and all must be tied together, each in four directions. The ends of the springs should be nailed firmly for the work of the frame. The springs must be covered in the upper part with a piece of heavy harp and each spring must be sewn to the harp in four places.
A continuous thread should be used. The best hair is “South American drawings”, which is a long and soft horse that has been sterilized, treated, and curly, whether black or black. White is a bit more expensive but it is not better in quality. However, there should be no short mixed parts. The hair is placed at the top of the burlap that covers the springs, and under the thread seams, the hair works and is intertwined by the experienced upholstery.
About this is freely adjusted a piece of light harp, which in turn sews the harp under the heavy one. This is done through a series of squares that cover the entire SCAT or the back. After completing this, it works in additional hair, and then the upper light burner is firmly provided to the frame and wall protectors with studs approximately 1/4 “away.
The edges now have the shape and the edge seams are made, under which a thin layer of hair is placed and on this is placed without whitening, firmly stretched, and attached to the sides. On this, a layer of cotton rhythm is placed, and finally, the finished material adjusts closely to the molding. The GIMP sticks to the studs like a finish, and finally, the black Cambric is nailed at the bottom and the piece is complete.
In lower labor, the filling can be of Excelsior, be it weed, moss, goat hair, pig hair, or old rags, and with the amount of detailed labor and the number of processes used to do a job of upholstery, one can easily judge that the quality of the material and labor can be very varied, causing the real cost
