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.

This elegant dining room window treatment incorporates a shaped cornice, gathered asymmetrical swag, pleated jabots, and bishop sleeve panels with large tassel tiebacks. Note how we start with a scaled drawing with the fabric downloaded and applied to the drawing to help our client’s visualize their design before placing their order. The final result looks just like the drawing. We used an embroidered faux silk fabric from Fabricade, and accentuated the design using a solid fabric from Norbar Fabrics. The result is simply elegant. Designed by Terry Kral, Window Wear Etc. Click on photos to enlarge. Window Treatments, Albany, NY.

Just installed! Pole Swags in Upholstery Fabric

Have you ever wondered if you could use upholstery fabric to make swags? They actually do make up nice as shown here. Since most upholstery fabrics are stiff and somewhat bulky, it is best to use them for a tailored application. Here we fabricated tailored pleats for both the swags and jabots (rather than shirred) to get a very nice drape to this design. The jabots are contrast lined, and the swags have regular lining. Each piece is attached to one another with velcro and lays on top of the 2″ Kirsch pole. Pinch pleated Ado sheers in a creamy yellow open and close to give the client the option for daytime, light filtering privacy. The honeycomb shade beneath gives night time privacy. This layered treatment gives the client many options at their window to serve their different needs throughout the day.
