Contemporary Ripplefold Drapes

Contemporary ripplefold drapes by Window Wear Etc.

More and more of our clients are loving the tailored look of ripplefold drapes. In this photo of a recently installed drape we used an embroidered sheer from Fabricut with a geometric design and lined it with a standard drapery lining. Notice how evenly spaced the pleats are when fully extended. Today there are many options of traversing hardware with ripple-fold carriers to meet all design needs for contemporary, transitional or traditional decorating. We used a Kirsch ripplefold traversing pole with contemporary finials.

In case you aren’t familiar with ripplefold drapes, they are actually flat panels with a snap tape stitched to the top of the drape. The top of the drape is then snapped into each of the carriers of the traverse rod creating the ripplefold effect. This is a very nice look for any room. This contemporary ripplefold drape was installed on our client’s kitchen slider as a one-way stack right drape. They can also be fabricated as a split drape.

Contemporary Valances & Bedspread

This unusual criss-cross style contemporary floral valance is a simple yet elegant way to top off the three windows in our clients master bedroom. We used a solid contrast welt to outline the design and used the same solid on the reverse for the jabots. This soft board mounted valance provides a tailored look. In addition, we fabricated a quilted  bedspread with a standard pillow tuck and gusset corners using the same contemporary floral fabric from Carole Fabrics. To complete the look, we reupholstered her headboard in a contemporary fabric from Stout Fabrics.
