cladding fabric to furniture

I really want to figure out how to clad furniture with fabric. The above midcentury piece covered in the toile du juoy fabric is so pretty. Apparently there is a classic technique of applying fabric to furniture that is durable and water proofed.

Decoupage glue and a clear sealer maybe? I've seen some DIYers do it.

they call it "wrapping" you can bring to a furniture finisher? (does that make sense haha) they can wrap in linen and many other kinds of fabric, and then they put a coat of poly or something over it.
