Upholstery Headband Cushion


Upholsterers make, repair, or replace upholstery for household furniture or transportation vehicles. They also fit, install, and secure material on frames, using hand tools, power tools, glue, cement, or staples. A cushion is a soft bag of some ornamental material, stuffed with wool, hair, feathers, polyester staple fiber, non-woven material, or even paper torn into fragments. It may be used for sitting or kneeling upon, or to soften the hardness or angularity of a chair or couch. The headboard is a piece of furniture that attaches to the head of a bed. Historically, they served to isolate sleepers from drafts and cold in less insulated buildings, and thus were made of wood, which is less thermally conductive than stone or brick.
