Grosse Pointe Draperies

Sunday, April 6th, 2014

At DrapeStyle we sell our custom made drapery all over the US and Canada but their are a few places that we really sell a lot of draperies too.  One of those places is Grosse Pointe Michigan.  So much so that we decided to visit Grosse Pointe and Troy Michigan, another one of our “Hot Spots”.

When we arrived in Grosse Pointe, just outside of Detroit, it didn’t take long to see why our traditional custom draperies do so well there.  This is the epicenter of grand homes that displayed the well-earned fruits of many of the leaders of the Industrial Revolution.  These homes were the result of “steel money” or “auto money” and they are simply gorgeous.  Huge home on equally huge parcels of land with two-store tall windows adorned with billowing draperies that puddle gracefully onto polished oak wood floors.  These are more than Homes, they are Manors and Showpieces of a proud time in American History.  Driving through Grosse Pointe you can really get a sense for the time when “Masters of Industry” would build monuments that would become part of their and their Families lasting legacies.  We loved our visit and can’t wait to go back.
