At the end of the reign of James I. and during that of Charles I., however, a certain amount of furniture was imported for the Court and nobility from Venice, and the elaborate upholstery in velvets, trimmed with gallons and fringes, is also Venetian in origin. Stow, speaking of the former reign, tells us that " cushions and window pillows of velvet and damask in former times were only used in the houses of the chief princes and peers of the land; though at this day those ornaments of estate and other princely furniture be very plenteous in most citizens houses" and upholstered furniture and cushions figure prominently in Lady Compton's well-known intimation of her wants to William, Lord Compton, in the early seventeenth century.
Another professional who you may want to consult before taking on a furniture restoration project is an antiques appraiser. While refinishing furniture you bought new can help give the piece more character or even help you to sell it for a profit at a yard sale, there are rare and collectible pieces of furniture that will lose value if they are refinished. When you've bought an antique dining room table, coffee table or cabinet, furniture refinishing could lower the value of the piece and you may want to look into a thorough professional cleaning instead.
