Drapes in Luxurious Shchumacher Fabrics

Oh my how we love to make drapes in amazing Schumacher Fabrics at DrapeStyle.  If you know Fabric, than you know Schumacher and you know that it is not cheap.  We work with some Schumacher’s that are more than $350 per yard.  When you are making drapes in fabrics that are $350 per yard, you better make sure that the Drapery Seamstress knows what she is doing.

At DrapeStyle our Workroom Manager, Berta has been making custom drapes since 1965.  She pretty much has it down to a science by now – or really down to an art form.  Our Seamstresses have an average of 15 years experience working on custom drapes and when it comes to working on $350 per yard fabric, we are pretty confident that there aren’t a more capable group of Seamstresses around.  So, if you are looking for amazing custom designer drapes that make a statement, consider looking at our Schumacher Collection.  I’d also suggest calling one of our Designers who can help you to confirm your measurements and walk you through your order 800-760-8257.

This is the first time I used an online company to purchase custom drapery. I was apprehensive about the process given the fact that measurements for this type of project need to be accurate. The company was very responsive in getting fabric samples out to me quickly. I contacted them a few times to make sure that I had the correct dimensions on my order and they were very helpful in walking me through the process. The quality of the finished product is excellent as well as the customer service and the drapes fit perfectly.

My drapes were custom made by Drape Style. The quality and workmanship was superb. The attention to detail was incredible. The packaging of the finished product was carefully done which prevented any wrinkling/damage to the fabric during shipping. The quality o the drapery hardware was also excellent. I could not have been any more pleased with this order. I also appreciated that they were made in America.

I love my drapes! They are exactly what I wanted and were beautifully made. They’re in eggshell silk dupioni, interlined, and blackout lined. Custom length, custom width, and they even honored a special request to have the drapery rings sewn in. The quality of the fabric and craftsmanship are terrific, and the fabric color matched the sample perfectly. I just ordered a roman shade for an adjoining room and am sure to use them for drapes in all our home decorating projects. Thanks Drapestyle for a job well done!

I can not say enough good things about this company. We recently finished remodeling our home and needed that final touch to bring it all together which meant getting some amazing drapery for the windows. I looked at many companies but nothing compared to the fabric options, quality and cost that Drape Style offered. What you get for their price point is amazing to what you can pay elsewhere. Our drapes are gorgeous and made from designer fabric with a very nice weight to them. It is the first thing everyone notices when they come to our home and probably my most favorite detail to the home. Good drapery really does bring your house all together.
I worked with one of their designers who came out to my home for a consultation and she was amazing. Come armed with so many amazing fabric options and was forthcoming with very good advice.
As well their website is great for easy navigation and purchase of drapes or shades if you just want to go for it on your own. Which I had done previously for our dining room with no regrets. I highly recommend Drape Style to anyone that is looking for dine drapes and shades.

I absolutely love my drapes from Drapestyle! They were made exactly as I asked and beautifully done. I bought 2 sets. The quality is amazing and after I got them, I had them make coordinating pillows. The fabric choices are that California contemporary that makes my home stand out from my friends! Thanks, Drapestyle ;-)

I was having a party and needed drapes to complete my family room refurb. With not very much time on my hands, I turned to Drapestyle. Lisa was above and beyond helpful with everything from advice, color picks and samples. She took care of my order from start to finish and did not tire, (I think) of my endless phone calls and questions. The drapes came in enough time and looked gorgeous. I was not expecting the unbelievably high quality of craftsmanship for the price. I had been locally to price compare. I would definitely by again

Cartridge Pleat Drapes

Yeah!  DrapeStyle has it’s very first Patent!  In the drapery business we have always just sort of done things they way they have always been done for a hundred years, but not at DrapeStyle.  When we make a Cartridge Pleat Drape we basically make a cylinder or a cone.  The inside of the cylinder is empty and just about every custom drapery manufacturer in the world will stuff that cylinder with paper or pillow-fill or something else to keep the cartridge pleat, well, shaped like a cartridge.  When you “stuff” a cartridge pleat or a goblet pleat with paper or whatever you run into a couple of problems.

The first problem is that if you crush, pinch or otherwise misshape the pleat they are not going to “bounce back”.  As a result you get pleats that are either misshapen, crooked or just not, well a cartridge pleat.

Problem number two, is that when you fill the pleat with “material” you leave little spaces in there.  Little dark spaces.  And, we know who likes little dark spaces, right?  Yes, little crawly creatures.  They like to move into cartridge pleats and build themselves little nests.  And, once they have a nest they like like to fill that nest with little baby crawly things.  Before you know it you have a little crawly thing condo happening in your drapes Cartridge Pleats.  Not at all what you had planned!

So, introduce the DrapeStyle Solution to the little crawly thing happening in your Cartridge Pleats.  The Pleat Plug.  Yes, this little device may seem innocent enough but it is the answer to colonies of little crawly guys forever.  Plus, with the new Pleat Plug Technology with your Cartridge Pleated Drapes or Goblet Pleated Drapes you now end up with perfectly formed pleats that will last the lifetime of the drape.  And, DrapeStyle gets themselves a Patent for “Drapery Technology”!!
