Tuft Love

The Manhattan bed is our most versatile style. This California King crafted for Design One Interiors features a slightly pulled, biscuit tufting detail. Adding a plinth base creates a modern design style and one we are obsessed with! With so many different types of tufting featured in today’s Current, you may be wondering what the best choice for your project is. Check out the info on some of the most popular choices:

Types of Tufting

Diamond: The most common type of tufting, diamond tufting is when the fabric is pulled and secured into such a fashion that when complete, you see a pattern of diamond shaped arrangements. Found must commonly on antiqued or traditionally styled sofas or chairs, this type of tufting is often considered the most comfortable because of the extra cushioning pushed into the raised “pocket” or “tuft” once secure.

Button: Button tufting mainly refers to upholstered pieces where you can notably see buttons in a geometric pattern on the fabric surfaces. The key difference between button and diamond tufting is that in diamond tufting, the stitches are at a much deeper depth giving the appearance of bigger pockets whereas in button tufting, the securing stitches are at a much lighter depth creating shallower depressions in the tufts.

Biscuit or Bun: Designed more recently than the traditional diamond tuft, biscuit tufting is when the stiches are secured to form a square pattern and can either be at a shallow stitch or a more cavernous one. Biscuit tufting is more common in mid-century modern or contemporary designs.

Blind: While less common than the other three types, blind tufting is characterized by the lack of buttons and signature pattern and is created by the fabric being secured with a knot in the back. Blind tufted furniture is often represented in more contemporary, minimalistic design styles.
