Decorating With Tufted Upholstery.........Classical AND Modern

When you think of diamond tufted upholstery, several styles come to mind. Many think of antiques and High Victorian style rooms. Many others think of Hollywood glamour. Imagine the old Hollywood bedroom of Jean Harlow or other starlets of the era. Somewhere in that room there will  probably be a piece of diamond tufted upholstered furniture. A headboard, or maybe a vanity chair. Now we can add another very modern visual when it comes to tufting. Today transitional and contemporary rooms look fabulous furnished with a tufted leather sofa or amazing patterned headboard. I have never learned the technique but I know others that have. The beautiful headboards displayed in their bedrooms make all the hard work well worth it! I hope if you are contemplating a change in an upholstered piece, you will gain some inspiration from these images and give diamond tufting a try.

Tufting is usually thought of as an upholstery for antiques but this sofa and colorful contemporary blows that theory!!
