DECORATIVE DRAPERIES & UPHOLSTERY
with 64 beautiful color plates
from the 1920's and 1930's
Art Deco Decorating Ideas
DECORATIVE DRAPERIES & UPHOLSTERY is an answer to numerous requests, over a period of years, from home builders and interior decorators, for information and advice about color schemes, draperies, decorative furniture coverings and problems of interior decoration.
It was not possible, of course, to embody in a single volume answers to all the various decorative problems propounded. The scope of this book had to be severely limited to a carefully selected number of decorative problems which would at once cover much ground, be practical of execution and easily understood by anyone interested in interior decoration, whether as a non-professional or as a professional decorator, or as a buyer or seller of decorative textiles.
Accordingly, Decorative Draperies & Upholstery offers solutions of familiar problems in decorative draping and upholstering, embodying complete color schemes and including many familiar decorative problems of background and furnishings.
While a certain amount of practical information has been given about drapery construction and workmanship, Decorative Draperies & Upholstery is not a manual of the draper's craft. Such books aplenty already exist but none that extensive research has been able to disclose which offers decorative suggestions in line, form and color, for layman and professional alike, as do the color plates in this book.
No partiality has been shown towards any particular "style"; many are represented in the color plates. The object has been to draw inspiration from many sources of design, all of which have suggestive value for today's requirements. Nor have the latest interpretations of contemporary style tendencies been neglected.
Every drapery material shown in the color plates has been as faithfully portrayed as the limitations of water colors and the printing arts permit. The decorative schemes shown offer practical solution of everyday problems, for the most part.
A chapter on Theatre Curtains has been included, for the benefit of decorators and drapery departments in dry goods and furniture stores, where there is an increasing demand for special drapery work of this character. The information given in this chapter is intended to be merely introductory for those who desire to equip themselves to perform such work.
NOTE: This is a digital reproduction of Decorative Draperies & Upholstery, 1937 edition by Edward Thorne. 255 pages, including 64 Color Plates. The Bonus contains 34 pages including 17 pages of color illustrations.
Excerpt from "Decorative Draperies"
MODERN LIVING ROOM WITH FIGURED BACKGROUND
THIS PLATE shows the library-end of a modern living room, with plain furniture against a figured wall-paper background. The wall-paper, with its broad design, is typical of conservative modern patterns, in tones of green, with taupe and white flowers. The wood-work has been painted silver and striped in black. The picture recess is outlined in the same colors. Also, the bookcases on each side have silver linings. The lighting effect is created by a long, broad, glass-enclosed case hanging from the ceiling, with lights hidden behind amber glass, giving a sunlight glow to the room.
The other end of this room has a severe, cast-cement mantel, with an inset, framed, modern picture. The long wall of the room, to the right, has three windows running up close under the ceiling and without trim and low sills. The draperies are of sheer, light yellow silk, without valance or trimming, covering the entire glass surface in light folds.
The center sofa is of burl walnut with an angular frame covered in an unusual velvet woven in a series of orange tones, shaded across the width of the material, ranging from very light yellow to deep red-orange. Round, barrel-shaped cushions are shown at either end of the sofa, covered in the same velvet. Pillows in brilliant green and changeable blue and green velvet contrast with the ground color.
