HISTORIC UPHOLSTERY: A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON TREATMENT
ABSTRACT—Developing a conservation plan for upholstered objects involves evaluation of historical evidence on the object, assessing other historical resources such as period documents and similar objects with extant upholstery or upholstery evidence, and designing a treatment that will preserve all original materials. Because traditional upholstery techniques introduce thousands of new holes with each reupholstery, the last decade has seen great advancement in the technical development of methods that serve both areas of concern—historical accuracy and preservation of materials.
