Nothing deepens the drama and richness of a room like custom draperies and curtains. At F & R Interiors, we are dedicated to helping you create the design aesthetic that perfectly embodies your tastes and vision for your space. When you combine other products such as blinds or shades with draperies window treatments bring together the room to add a polished, romantic and deeply indulgent look. Draperies are beyond just fabric hanging by your windows.
When it comes to window treatments Los Angeles design professionals will tell you that custom draperies are an incredible way to express yourself through your windows. These curtains create personality and emotion within a room, completely changing the impression of the space in as long as it takes to install the treatment. We will work with you to discuss your current design and your vision for your space so we can help you choose the window treatment elements that are perfect for your home.
Below are a few of our most popular styles:
Whether classic or updated, pleated drapes all feature traditional stiffening in the headers that allows them to be shaped into neat, crisp pleats. Mount with any of our hardware collections; we’ll pre-place drapery pins for traversing hardware, or use rings on any non-traversing hardware styles. Various styles include double pinched pleats, pencil pleats, goblet pleats, box pleats, butterfly pleats, and cartridge pleats. Pleated draperies never go out of style.
Soft ripple-like fold flows smoothly from one end of the track to the other. The effect is gently tailored – suitable for either commercial or residential installations. Master carriers that butt together, and carriers that swivel eliminate “flat” drapery areas. Folds are identically beautiful from inside the room or outside the building presenting an architectural advantage. Headings, suspended under the track, cannot tip or sag. They are always perfectly positioned and spaced.
Pleated panels are a classic style of drapery and so never really go out of fashion, although their popularity rises and falls with current trends.
Grommet drapes have gained in popularity over the years. Grommets are used at the top of a drapery panel near the top edge. Because the drapery rod is exposed, these type of drapes are commonly used with an attractive rod with decorative finals at the end. Grommet panels easily slide along the rod and fall into neat and clean folds. Perfect for French doors, sliding doors, or anywhere you want flexibility of opening and closing the panels.
While every F & R Interior product allows you some measure of light control, some products offer more room darkening benefits than others. A key consideration is fabric or material type and color. Sheer fabrics typically soften and filter sunlight, while semi-opaque and opaque versions almost completely block sunlight. We say “almost” because these fabrics and materials darken a room but do not entirely eliminate light. As you browse our product collection, look for Privacy & Light Control details listed under Specifications. Fabrics and materials designated as “semi-opaque” (or a rating of 4 or higher) will offer you room darkening benefits.
Depending on your light-control, privacy and style preferences, a sheer drapery can be beautiful alone of as a layer under a heavier drapery. Sheer fabrics are usually lightweight and made from polyester, cotton, linen, gauze, silk chiffon and chenille. The see-through material offers a soft natural lightening effect from the sun.
Lace draperies are timeless and add a touch of elegance to any home décor. Lace comes in a variety of weights, patterns and colors, however white and ivory seem to be the most popular. Today, most lace fabric is made from polyester so they can be easily machine washed. They also seem to provide a bit more privacy, since the lace panels tend to be more textured than a standard sheer drapery.
Drapery lining is used for a variety of reasons, both practical and aesthetic. The most common use for drapery lining is to block out the light. In hot and cold climates insulating drapery lining is used to help save on heating and cooling costs, as well as dampen noise. Lining fabric can range from light filtering to blackout. Fabrics are usually made from poly cotton blends, 100% polyester or 100% cotton and usually in white, ivory and black.
