Grommeted Drapery

A contemporary pleat featuring custom ordered grommet finished.

 

Grommeted drapes are used for stationary panels and some smaller windows. Due to the traction and wear on a rod we do not recommend using this style on windows that need to be opened and closed regularly.

 

Using a corrosion resistant metal makes this an excellent choice for outdoor drapery panels.

 

Goblet Pleat Drapery

The goblet pleat is a beautiful style for transitional homes.

 

A modern take on the classic pinch pleat design, goblet pleat drapes add an extra element of visual interest with their open “wine goblet” shape created at the top of the window treatment where the buckram is located.

 

Goblet pleats give draperies a dressed up look, making them a great choice for a formal dining room.

Rod Pocket Drapery

Rod pocket draperies are gathered on a rod and fullness is determined by ruching.

 

A pocket is formed at the top of the drapery panel. The drapery rod is then inserted through the pocket and gathered to the desired fullness 

Drapery pins are not used on a rod-pocket panel.

 

This style of drapery is best when used on stationary panels as it is sometimes difficult and cumbersome to traverse.
