Publisher's description: Fine custom upholstery - the fabrication and finishing of exceptional furnishings is an art form. The foremost practitioner of this art form is Jonas, an old-world yet thoroughly modern atelier tucked away in New York City's Flatiron District. Jonas designers and craftspeople consider multiple aspects of each piece of furniture: proportion, texture, palette, comfort, material, scale, structure, form, and function. Jonas: The Art of Fine Upholstery reveals the ways of the workshop, its talented artisans, and the heirloom pieces produced, which grace homes and workplaces across the United States, most notably the Oval Office. Three specially commissioned photo essays by noted interiors photographer Don Freeman introduce Jonas s luminous New York showroom; the superb craftsmanship of the skilled workers; and the masterful finished forms. At the heart of the volume is a portfolio of more than 30 projects by designers such as Thomas O'Brien/Aero Studios, Brian J. McCarthy, David Easton, Shelton Mindel, Thomas Pheasant, and Victoria Hagan.
