Draperies are making a comeback. People are hungry for textiles in their rooms. They add warmth, absorb sound, reduce drafts, and insulate large picture windows.
One main drawback with draperies is the stack-back of the fabric. Windows have gotten larger and wall space smaller. No one wants to hide the view or reduce the light that flows in from outdoors. We have to allow 30% for stack on standard white traverse rods. The stack is less on decorator rods because the drapery hangs underneath the rod allowing the crinolin to fold back instead of scrunching forward between the pleats.
Here is where this new product solves a major problem. These drapes stack in 10% of the rod.
Take a look at these photos of Vignette Vertical Traverse. Notice how small the stack is at each side of the window.
A great application for this product is sliding glass doors. On a 6′ slider we would install a 82″-84″ rod and it would clear the glass.
Come in and take a look at the samples today. Custom draperies take anywhere from 6-8 weeks but this product has a 3 week production time.
