Furniture Makes the Room

Knack Studio founder Barb Blair is famous for her 'knack' with furniture: spotting classic pieces and transforming them into modern showstoppers. In this inspiring book, Blair goes beyond the nuts-and-bolts of furniture refinishing to show how to style rooms with each customised piece. For instance, she transforms a tired coffee table with an ombrE-painted design, and then reveals how to incorporate it into different rooms such as a bright and sunny den, cozy reading nook, and cheerful bedroom.With instructions for 15 before-and-after furniture projects in Blair's signature bold style, colourful design sketches, a 'toolbox' section of her best techniques and materials, and dozens of inspiring interiors, Furniture Makes the Room reveals the true versatility of furniture and unlocks the secrets to decorating rooms around statement pieces.
