The Design Directory of Bedding is a valuable resource for any Interior Designer or Drapery Workroom, the perfect companion to Jackie Von Tobel's first book, The Design Directory of Window Treatments.

The designs and sketches are just wonderful, and so imaginative! The accompanying CD with black and white line drawings makes it easy to print out a sketch to show a client.

You will be truly inspired by the many fresh ideas contained in this book! I'm sure it will be the first book you turn to when looking for that perfect bedding or pillow design.

The Design Directory of Bedding comes with a set of illustrations on CD-ROM and is packed with bedroom design examples, ideas, and fabrics. Any interior design or home library will benefit from this resource directory for fabrics with over 1,000 illustrations and a glossary of terms for furniture and soft furnishings. From workroom worksheets to help designers to color drawings of shams, bolsters, neck rolls and more, THE DESIGN DIRECTORY OF BEDDING is a winner!

This directory is a MOST valuable design library asset. Like Jackie Von Tobel's previous book for window treatments, this should be a resource that will continue to inspire your creative ideas for design each time you open the book.

As a lifelong seamstress, owner of a professional workroom and a design resource center to the trade only, I have recommended this to each designer I work with. With the CD that comes with the book, you can print each design in black and white, which is an invaluable tool for communicating with your retail client OR your workroom/seamstress. This is NOT a "how to" book but a creative "stimulous package" for design ideas!

Thank you Ms. Von Tobel for doing it again!

This book is as fabulous as its predecessor, "The Design Directory of Windows." Filled with beautifully illustrated drawings of bedding, organized perfectly. Jackie Von Tobel's books are indispensable resources for designers, workrooms, or handy homeowners looking for ideas for something really special. I'm not sure what I used to do without them!
