Upholstery is the work of providing furniture, in particular seats, with padding, springs, webbing, and material or leather covers. The phrase upholstery comes from the middle English phrase upholder, which mentioned an artisan who held up their goods.
The time period is equally applicable to domestic, automobile, plane and boat furnishings, and can be implemented to mattresses, particularly the top layers, though those regularly range drastically in design.
A person who works with upholstery is referred to as an upholsterer. An apprentice upholsterer is from time to time called an interloper or trimmer. Traditional upholstery uses substances like coil springs (publish-1850), animal hair (horse, hog and cow), coir, straw and hay, hessian, linen scrims, wadding, and so forth., and is done by way of hand, constructing every layer up. In evaluation, modern upholsterers employ artificial materials like dacron and vinyl, serpentine springs, and so forth.
