A Brief History of Upholstery


Upholstery is a term that evolved from the word “upholder,” in olden times. In the 1700s in Europe, upholders were more like interior decorators and arranged all aspects of a room’s décor, including building and covering different types of furniture. Before then, their primary occupation was selling the fabric and fittings used for funerals. But upholstery, as a profession, developed through the years to describe the craft of padding and covering family furniture such as chairs and sofas.

Through the Middle Ages, family homes gradually became more inviting and furnishings became softer and more comfortable. Seating was stuffed with materials from sawdust to feathers to horsehair and covered with a dome of fabric held in place by nails. By the end of the 1800s, however, upholsterers had developed techniques using careful stitching to create rolled edges for stability and tufting or buttoning to better secure more elaborate shapes. It wasn’t long before top-stitching, cording and other decorative features added the same elegance and opulence to furniture that was reflected in the fashion of the day. Padding became quite complex, edges became more elaborate and fabrics were imported and artfully arranged into intricate shapes. Upholstery, then, meant high-fashion, prestige and the appearance of great expense.
