9780140079081 A comprehensive guide to the variety of textiles that have enhanced British homes from the Middle Ages until the present day. With the help of illustrations the author gives an account of the history of them all - from the simple tablecloth to the most sumptuous of tapestries. She also explains the major currents in the development of home furnishings - particularly the emergence of the 18th century equivalent of our modern interior designer. He was the upholsterer who was given free reign in the choosing of materials and the dictation of fashion in every new wealthy house.
