The bolts of fabric beckoned Dean Jones
when he walked through the Pacific Design Center, and his life changed forever. He decided to quit his job at a credit company and
take the leap into the world of wall upholstering. Dean had studied international business in Chicago before moving to Los
Angeles, where a friend taught him the steps of upholstering walls with fabrics: lining walls with strips of wood, stapling
fabric-like silk or linen to the wood and hand-sewing the fabric panels together. Since 1989, Dean has upholstered everything from powder rooms to the Grand Ballroom of the Century Plaza Hotel, and has worked for luminaries including Cher, Tom Selleck and the Sultan of Brunei. And although Eddie Murphy's new house is now only a hole in the ground, soon Dean will be upholstering its walls.
