Drapery pleats, many styles to choose from!

Often my clients ask what type of pleating I would recommend for their draperies. My answer would be, first, it depends on the general style of the room, and also the personal preference. In general, we recommend Ripple folds, Grommets, and Euro pleats, for a modern settings, Pinch pleats, Goblets pleats, or cartridge pleats for traditional style rooms, and ruched and pencil pleats for both modern and traditional rooms.

New Draperies for a Burr Ridge Client!

We finished installing new draperies for one of our clients in Burr Ridge Illinois!

These were the clients requirements:

  • Allow as much light as possible to come in the room.
  • Unique draperies that will make a statement.
  • The draperies must have a masculine feel.
  • The draperies must blend and coordinate with the furnishings that exists already in the room.

How did we meet the clients requirements?

  • We created panels that are stationary and will cover small part of the window only.
  • The design, the combination of fabrics and the use of the hardware is very unique.
  • By using faux leather, velvet, nail heads in the cornice and how they all were put together, made the treatment have a masculine feel.
  • The room was painted a very beautiful, warm golden yellow, the furniture had brown, gold and salmon pink as far as colors. The chairs were over sized with nail heads as a detail. Our treatment had the same colors, had a nice combination of textures, and the way it worked together it was amazing! When our client walked in the room that is what she said : ” you are an artist!”
