Drapery
There are many styles and applications of drapery that will enhance all types of windows, for any room setting. Our staff will help you choose the correct fabric and style for your desired outcome. Fullness, weight, texture and style will set each drapery apart to realize your personal taste. Our goal is to assist you in selecting the best style, fabrics, and colors for your room.
Rod Pocket
Rod Pocket
A casual treatment for less formal settings, the Rod Pocket is constructed with a simple top-pocket, with optional fabric above the pocket. Not recommended for operable drapery, the Rod Pocket Drape is mounted on decorative poles, continental and cafe rods. Ideal for door panels.
Pinch Pleat / French Pleat
Pinch Pleat / French Pleat
A traditional treatment in use for centuries, Pinch Pleat Drapery can be installed on decorative poles with rings, or operable traverse rods. Match any style of decor in any room of the house.
Grommet
Grommet
This treatment describes affixing to fabric decorative grommets through which a coordinate metal rod is used for mounting. Ideal for areas where less stack back would be desired, since it does not require as much fullness.
Top Tab
Tab Top
Casual and fun, this treatment can achieve many different looks, by using coordinate fabrics, buttons and trims, for enhancement. Great for kids rooms, kitchens and dens.
Inverted Box Pleat & Goblet
Inverted Box Pleat & Goblet
Recommended for side panels only. These panels are hung on decorative rods with or without rings.
Sheers
Sheers
Ideal for a soft translucent look. Although they are usually unlined, some unusual effects can be achieved with backing or placing a separate lining behind them for privacy or room darkening.

Did You Know? - Lining & Interlining

Custom drapery treatments (other than sheers) should always be lined. This will give the fabric more body and also protects it from the elements. Interlining is recommended for silks and linens, to help the natural fibers soften and assist with their natural wrinkling.
Valances
All of the drapery styles (shirred rod pocket, grommet, tab top, box pleat, etc..) can be used in a shortened version as a stationary valance. They can be board mounted or placed on a pole. Choose from a world of fabric to put your personal stamp on your home.
Shaped
Shaped
Many types of valances can be shaped with longer and shorter points for an interesting look. By varying the length, a shirred valance can be used to frame the sides of the window. By making a scalloped bottom, any style can give a different appearance.
Dog Ear / Butterfly
Dog Ear / Butterfly
This style is often used in children’s rooms, since coordinate ribbons can be added, as well as fun trims or banding. Kitchens are another area where this type of valance is recommended.
Queen Anne
Queen Anne
Similar to a Kingston, but without the fullness in the swoops, this is used for a more tailored and casual effect. Using coordinate lining for the bells, tapered ends or welting at the leading edge, will accent the wall or floor color of the room.
Balloon
Balloon
Traditional or shirred, it is best as a stationary valance, since the poufs will constantly change, when operable. Great treatment for bedrooms.
Box Pleat
Box Pleat
Great for boy’s rooms. Pleats can be touching or spaced, wide or small, with so many variations the result can be different each time. Add coordinate lining, buttons, banding or trims and each valance will create a custom look. Shaping the hem can also make an interesting element.
Roman
Roman
Sleek, tailored and contemporary, the Roman Valance is often used for a softer effect than a padded cornice. This treatment can give solid or textured fabrics more interest.

Did You Know? - What's A Jabot?

Sometimes called a cascade or tail, in the world of custom window fashions, a Jabot is a vertical pleated fabric adornment that helps to frame out a window with down swoops, and cover seams between individual swags.
Toppers
Traditional over treatments, the Empire (or Kingston) and Swag style of window fashion are time tested and beloved for centuries...
Empire (Kingston)
Empire (Kingston)
This traditional style will be found in the oldest European castles, finest restaurants, catering establishments and homes around the world. Upholstery weights to fine silks - any fabric can be used to create this beautiful treatment.
Swags
Swags
From the most traditional board mounted to the casual freeform hand draped, this topper has many different looks. Adding longer side jabots will also change the styling. Depending on the application, almost any fabric can be used. Many pole swags are constructed in pieces and then attached, so they look uniform.
Shades
Light control & privacy are simplified by the use of shades. From the simplistic roller shade to the more ornate Austrian, this window treatment is perfect for many areas.
Romans
Romans
This is currently the most popular style. They can be made flat, relaxed or soft fold with semi-opaque, blackout or no lining (for sheers). Appropriate for any room.
Balloons & Dog Ear
Balloons & Dog Ear
Not usually recommended for an operable treatment, since the swoops will constantly change and it will require constant re-dressing.
Austrians
Austrian
Formal treatment usually used with unlined sheers. Beautiful in traditional dining and living rooms.
Roller
Roller
Practical application for any room to control light and offer privacy. Usually used along with other decorative treatments. Newer styles offer many beautiful fabric choices and have an optional finished top so that they can be used as a stand alone treatment.
Cornices
Cornices
This is the most popular valance. Used as a stand alone or in addition to drapery, shades and any other window treatment, it will enhance the window and draw color and focus to the top. With innumerable shapes and designs, a cornice will transform any room.
Lambrequin / Cantonnier
Lambrequin / Cantonnier
Essentially a Cornice with legs! The sides will frame the window, much like a jabot on a valance.
