Installation of the Week

My favorite fabric of the week is Schumacher's "Zanzibar Linen Print" it has great colors and gorgeous leaves and flowers. We installed these draperies this week in a commercial building. The window is recessed so there is no room for finials. With windows like this you just butt the rod into the wall. We used 3" diameter rods for a substantial look.

The conference room had a bay window with 5 angles so I made it in separate pieces so we could transport it. I backed the fabric for the box pleated valance with a black stabilizer to help it hold it's shape and put a 3/4" bias band on the bottom.


Here's the window before : What a big difference !
