If you are looking for an easy to care for window treatment for your home consider designing your windows with lambrequins. Lambrequins are upholstered cornices with longer sides providing a polished classic look. There are many styles and shapes to choose from for traditional or contemporary designing. Since lambrequins are upholstered like furniture, they can easily be cleaned by vacuuming dust or by hiring an upholstery cleaning service for a deeper more thorough cleaning. This is of particular interest to homeowners who suffer from allergies as our client does. She loved the idea of a simple, yet elegant window treatment that would be  easy to care for. The lambrequin pictured here was the perfect solution.  If you would like more information about Lambrequins, please contact us at 518/355-0063. We would love to help you design a lambrequin for your home in a fabulous fabric from our extensive library. Happy Decorating!

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.
