DrapeStyle offers Linen Fabrics from Kravet

Did you know Linen is one of the oldest and best loved fabrics of the world?  Linen has so many outstanding characteristics it’s no wonder that it is one of DrapeStyle’s most popular fabrics for custom Draperies, Curtains and Roman Shades.Here are some facts you may not know about Linen:·

  • Linen is a top choice for fine upholstery and window treatments, table furnishings and handkerchiefs.  It can be used to make pillows, sachets, quilts, and just about anything.
  • Linen is prized for its smooth, cool texture, its strength, and its crisp, clean, stylish, and sophisticated appearance.
  • It is twice as durable as cotton, three times as durable as wool and it is grown naturally and safely without chemicals or pesticides.
  • Linen never causes allergic reactions and it is resistant to bacteria, fungus, noise, dust mites, and even radiation.

Perfect Window Treatments for Bathrooms and Kitchens

Occasionally we will get a call from a Customer or Designers who is trying to find a window treatment for a bathroom or a kitchen.  Drapery is a tough option for either of these rooms but we specify Roman Shades for bathrooms and kitchens all of the time.  As a matter of fact one of our more popular photographs is of a Roman Shade that we made for a bathroom.  You can’t see it in the photo but just beneath the Shade is a large bathtub.  Roman Shades provide a lot of versatility for odd sized windows or kitchens or bathrooms when a traditional curtain or drapery treatment is not practical.

Very often we see Roman Shades in kitchens over the sink area, laundry rooms, pantries and mud rooms.  They offer great privacy, especially when they are properly lined and interlined.

We try to teach our Designers to think “outside the box” when it comes to custom window treatments for any room in your home.  And, of course all of our Roman Shades are made right here in the USA in our custom workroom.

Wait Until You See This….

We just completed a Project in Southern California.  The photoshoot is next week and all of the custom drapes that went into this 10,000 square foot custom home came out of our new Arizona Workroom.  Simply said, they are going to knock your socks off!  Here is just a little teaser of what to expect but the “real” photos are coming from one of Southern California’s best Architectural Photographers and, although I am admittedly biased, the drapes steel the show!  We dressed eight rooms of this amazing brand new Spanish Colonial and a variety of linens and sheers.  We mixed Roman Shades with Drapery for depth and texture and added a extra helping of Schumacher, Robert Allen and our own line of Bristol Linen that you are not going to find at Restoration Hardware!

Stand by for the full photo shoot images coming in the next couple of weeks!

Stay tuned for the full photoshoot!

Always Gratefull for Wonderful Reviews from Our Clients!

As the daughter of a professional seamstress, I was at first hesitant to order custom drapes online. I was quickly won over by the speedy shipment of the sample fabrics I had ordered. The fabrics were of the highest quality and every question or concern I had was easily put to rest by the outstanding customer representatives. I ordered my first pair of double width french pleated silk curtains for my dining room. The drapes arrived beautifully wrapped and with such care that it was obvious the company took great pride in its product. The lining, stitching and detail work are all incredible. I was so reassured that I hired them again to create treatments for my study a few months later. The typical turn around time is 5-8 weeks. As the 8 week mark approached, I received notice that my fabric was still not available from the mill and I was given the option to wait for it’s arrival or change my fabric choice. I decided to wait. In the meantime, the fabric was further discounted. The representatives at DrapeStyle did not hesitate to adjust my order to my benefit. Furthermore, they expedited my order so that once the fabric arrived, it would be only a week before the drapes were in my hands. Once again, they are stunning. And so for the third time, I have placed an order with DrapeStyle to custom make drapes for my living room. I know they will be greater than I can even envision. Thank you so much, DrapeStyle, for truly providing outstanding customer service and unparalleled product quality.
Sincerely,
Melissa Bowman, MD

Introducing Mulberry Silk Drapes at DrapeStyle

We are really happy to have a new line of Mulberry Silk Drapes at DrapeStyle.  Mulberry Silk is simply the absolute finest quality of Silk Fabric you can buy.  This Silk is harvested from Silk Worms that have been raised in climate controlled rooms and fed nothing but a diet of pure Mulberry Leaves.  The result is the finest, softest most uniform Silk fibers available.  The fibers are so consistent that just one thread can be as long as 180 feet.

When woven into silk fabrics the long, uniform threads mean that the resulting fabrics are thick, uniform and free of almost all nubs or imperfections.  We are one of very few Manufacturers in the US that have been able to purchase the Mulberry Fabrics and we ordered them in 14 amazing exclusive Designer Colors.

Please order sample of this fabric and feel the difference for yourself.

 

 

Restoration Hardware Now Offers Custom Drapery

Restoration Hardware is now offering a new collection of custom made drapery in silk and linen fabrics.  They look great and are made in the US by local Workrooms who make each custom drapery panel to order.  I was surprised by a few things:

  • Absolutely no returns, exchanges or refunds.
  • Pricing is really, really high.

I am sure like most things that I have purchased from Restoration Hardware, the quality will be good.  The lead-time is only 14 days which is very competitive.  We will certainly keep an eye on the offering and I’d love to hear how the panels look and what the quality looks like.

 

 

 

Online Drapery Reviews

One of the great things about the internet is that it adds so much transparency to shopping because online drapery reviews are everywhere.  As a Online Drapery Retailer we are under the microscope with every single order, every single Customer.  Today we have to be (and I like to think we have always been) laser focused on Customer Service and Custom Support.  That is not to say that we don’t mess up.  We do.  I think the critical thing to do when “messing up” is to face up to it.  Accept the responsibility, learn from it and try everything in your power to not let it happen again.  In our business we are making a “Custom Product”, Draperies.  It may sound simple but there are a lot of moving parts to manage.  There are fabric issues, back-logs, dye-lots, deadlines and a million other little things that can simply fall off the tracks.  At DrapeStyle we’ve been a leading online retailer of custom drapery for over a decade.  We try very hard to take care of our Customers and focus on quality.  Thankfully our online drapery reviews speak for themselves.  Not 100% perfect, but, who is?  We are a business of humans making things with their hands and what is more human than to error on occasion.

Here is one of our favorites from Houzz…

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 First Drapery Blog Post!

Growing up I was fortunate enough to have a mom who runs a drapery company; sounds a tad unheard of, selling drapes that is. When you’re growing up, no matter what grade or age, your peers, teachers, and friends are usually curious of what your parents do for a living to mentally determine what they predicted you would grow up to be. I always had a difficult time explaining what exactly my parents did, because being an 11 year old girl in Mrs so-and-so’s 5th grade class, not everyone knew what the words ‘distributing’ nor ‘manufacturing’ meant… and the same patterns followed until I got to about 8th grade. I had one friend of mine who always asked how my parents’ hairstyling salon was going… she had a little bit of a harder time comprehending the words ‘manufacturing’ and ‘distributing’ … along with the words ‘drapery business’ as well, apparently. But in all seriousness, I liked telling and explaining to my friends what my parents did because it was unique… my dad didn’t work in a cubicle and my mom wasn’t a stay-at-home mom; I liked that it took me more than four words to describe my mom’s profession… ‘she doesn’t work’ didn’t quite fit her career description, but ‘a hard-working, patient, and sacrificial mom’ was close enough to sum it up if I were to put it in a few words. I don’t have a hard time expressing myself, nor my opinion, and that may be generated from the endless options of drapes and shams I am able to choose from to throw in my room and call my own creation… although I cant quite call it my own, yet I have a room that fits my personality and preference as a result either way. When I help in the showroom, I have stamped and stared at enough covers of catalogs as a procrastination strategy to kill time before Amy noticed to have  the motto of the company permanently engraved in my knowledge … ‘Beautifully Made to Order’, and I have to agree. I have seen many draped wrapped up in the plastic covers about to be shipped to their customers by the dozens to know what beautifully made drapes look like. I have an idea what effort is put into them because I see the Ladies in the Workroom busting their butts sewing them together stitch by stitch, yet they still seem to love their job almost as much as my parents do. I didn’t know people could actually enjoy work… now I do.

Like I said, this company is unique, stitched together with scattered words such as ‘manufacturing’ and ‘distributing’, but once you’re 14 and writing a blog post for your Dad, it doesn’t seem so bad.

Drapery Pleat Styles

At DrapeStyle we offer nine unique pleat styles online.  Our Seamstresses can make practically any pleat style so if you have seen a pleat style that is not offered on our website just give us a call and we can typically make it.  Here are some of our most popular pleat styles for our custom drapes.

 

Flat Drapery Panel:  On a flat panel we hem the top of the drapery and add a buckram tap to the header.  The buckram stiffens the top of the drapery panel and also supports the drapery pins which attach to the drapery rings.

flat drapery panel

The Flat Drapery Panel is the most basic pleat without any detail at the top of the drapery panel.

 

 

 

French Pleat:  The French Pleat is also known as a “Pinch Pleat” is one of the most iconic and classic of all drapery pleats.  French Pleats are most commonly formed with “three fingers” and also available in “two finger” styles.

The French Pleat is the most common and classic of all drapery pleats

 

 

Cartridge Pleat:  To form a Cartridge Pleat, our Seamstress will create a cylinder in the drapery heading which is then filled with one of our Patent Pending “Pleat Plugs” which keeps the cartridge pleat form uniform and consistent.

The Cartridge Pleat Custom Drapery

 

 

Inverted Pleat:  One of our most popular drapery pleats is the Inverted Pleat.  The Inverted Pleat can be both classically traditional and contemporary.  With the Inverted Pleat the Seamstress tailors a 5 inch inverted fold in the heading of the drapery panel which are sewn from the back of the panel.

8″ Inverted Pleat:  Another version of the Inverted Pleat that we offer on our Custom Drapes is the 8-Inch Inverted Pleat.  Essentially the same as a standard Inverted Pleat but we add an additional 3 inches to the length of the pleat.

Eight Inch Inverted Pleat

Parisian Pleat:  A Parisian Pleat is similar to the French Pleat but the “flute” is pinched and tacked at the top of the pleat as opposed to in the center.

Rod-Pocket:  The Rod-Pocket Panel is a very common and simple drapery pleat where the drapery rod is inserted into a “pocket” at the top of the drapery panel.  Rod-Pockets are typically found in “Ready Made” department store drapes.

The Rod-Pocket Custom Drapes

Grommet Drapes:  Our most contemporary drapery pleat style is the Grommet Panel.  Grommets are also very popular on Outdoor Drapes where we use Brass Grommets which are corrosion resistant.

Curtain & Drapes Review

A nice review we received today on Houzz…

 

DrapeStyle provided amazing custom window treatments and hardware for our home. The quality, craftsmanship and design help and advice was/is excellent. We shopped all the usual suspects for custom drapery/treatments. Drapestyle did it the way “I” wanted (drapery & valances & Roman Shades) and at a reasonable price – reasonable for custom treatments :-) All hand made in the USA including high quality USA made hardware. I finished the install just last night and am absolutely 100% thrilled with the results.

Outdoor Drapes at DrapeStyle

Well it sure is Outdoor Drapery Season here at DrapeStyle! It seems like we go right from the Holiday Season to the Outdoor Season but we sure do love it. In case you weren’t aware well sell amazing custom Outdoor Drapes and we feature only the best Sunbrella Fabrics. Another great feature of our Outdoor Drapery is the weight that we sew into the bottom of each panel. The weight is actually a long thin flexible weighted rope that holds the drapery panel down so it doesn’t blow to excessively in the breeze. We also use weather resistant poly buckram at the header (top of the panel) and polymer thread which is also weather resistant. If you like to add grommets to your outdoor drapes we offer 100% brass grommets in a Matt-nickel finish and black finish. You are simply not going to find these quality details in any outdoor drapery you buy from any Online Retailer or Department Store!

Silk Drapes on Sale

It is really incredible how much the costs are increasing for Silk Fabrics we import from India.  In the last month they have increase around 15% and they are up over 35% for the year.  We are doing our very best to keep the prices of our Silk Drapes as low as possible but if you are looking for Silk Drapes Online you should really hurry.  When our current sale pricing expires we are going to have to increase our prices on our Dupioni and Taffeta Silk Drapery.

From what our Suppliers are telling us the increase in Silk Fabric Prices are increasing due to a lower than normal harvest of raw silk which usually comes from China, where most of the Worlds Raw Silk Production comes from.

Linen Drapes

One of the most common questions we get is about our linen drapes wrinkling.  It’s no secret that linen fabrics are prone to stubborn wrinkles and no one wants drapes that look like crumpled paper.  The simple answer is that linen drapes are going to be more wrinkled than any other fabric that we carry but there are some things you can do to help.

First:  Please make sure that you open the drapes as soon as they arrive and hang them as soon as possible.  We keep all of our drapes hanging until the moment that they are bagged and then boxed.  As soon as they are boxed they are shipped.  We never leave any of our drapes boxed for an extended period of time.  I like to think of them as “fresh produce” – box them and get them on the truck!  Once you get your drapes hung they should relax pretty quickly and the wrinkles should fall out by themselves over the course of a few days.

Second:  If you have hung your linen drapes and they have a few stubborn wrinkles in them you can steam them out.  Don’t use an iron but get your self a garment steamer and fill it with distilled water.  You will need to steam them pretty thoroughly but please do not steam the fabric so much that they get “wet”.  It will be helpful to stream from both the front and back of the fabric.

Finally:  Really bad wrinkle?  You will have to break out the iron.  Use a medium heat setting and get a small travel-size iron-board that you can hold up behind the drapery fabric.  Doing this will allow you to iron your drapes while they are hanging which is the best way to iron them.

We recently launched our new line of blended linen drapes, we call them the Manhattan Linen Collection.  The Manhattan Linens are great because they are woven with a small amount of polyester which really helps to reduce or even, eliminate wrinkles.  These Linen Drapes give you the best characteristics of 100% linen with the wrinkle resistance of polyester.  Order a sample and have a feel for yourself.

Making Some Extra Long Drapes Today!

We’re making some really long and really wide custom drapes today for a Client in New York.  These are Linen Drapes in our Hotel Collection and they are just over 15 feet long and 9 feet wide.  These are really big drapery panels and adding the trim is not an easy task.  The trim is hand cut out of silk fabric, tacked to the linen drapes and then sewn on.  These are true Artisans at work!  Notice how she is using a straight-edge to guide the silk trim on the linen fabric.

Custom Drapery Reviews on Houzz

It is really amazing that just 5 years ago websites like Houzz and Pinterest didn’t even exist.  Today, Houzz has grown to be the premier destination for all things related to home furnishings just has Pinterest has to fashion.  One of the many things that Houzz is great for is reviews.  We’ve been getting some great reviews from our Customers, both Designers and Homeowners and I thought we would re-print some of them here.  Please excuse us for bragging on ourselves, but sometimes we just have to do it.  After all if you are looking for Custom Drapes you are probably going to visit Houzz at some point.  Thanks to all of our Clients for entrusting us to make your custom drapes!

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 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

Quality Custom Drapes Without Compromise

At DrapeStyle we are always trying to find ways to get our silk and linen drapes as competitively priced as possible for our Customers.  We are driven to get you the finest quality custom drapes at the absolute best price and value possible.  Our reputation is and always has been as a leader in very high quality.  When most People think of DrapeStyle they think “Quality” but it’s important that they also think “Value”.  Now, we will never be the “Low Price leader“, that is just not our style.  I think we can be the “Value Leader” though.

In the world of custom drapes we have a bunch of options, especially Online.  So consider the following.  If you are looking for new custom silk Dupioni drapes in a pretty standard length and width, let’s say you want them to be 120 inches long and 36 inches wide.  You like a French Pleat.  If you were to buy those silk drapes from DrapeStyle you would be looking at spending $380 per panel with standard lining and interlining.  You could upgrade to blackout lining for just $99 more per panel.

Now, that same drapery panel at The Shade Store would cost you just over $1,000.  Both Panels would be made to order in the USA to your exact measurements.

If you looked at Ready-Made Panels which are not made in the USA you could look at Restoration Hardware.  Restoration Hardware sells their Thai Silk Drapes which are lined but not interlined for $509 per-panel, and that is On Sale.  Now, those panels are a little wider at 46 inches per panel but they are using a “two-finger” French Pleat which requires less fabric.  If you wanted a Two-Finger French Pleat from DrapeStyle the panels would also be 46inches wide each.

So, there you have it.  At DrapeStyle, our Made to Order Silk Drapes are about 25% less expensive than Restoration Hardware’s Ready Made Panels and we are about 60% less than The Shade Store.

If that is still not in your budget you should keep an eye on THE OUTLET by DrapeStyle where you can find premium quality custom silk and linen drapes in overstock fabrics for as much as 75% off our regular prices!

When you do your homework we are very confident that we really are the best value in custom silk drapes, period.  Maybe that’s why Interior Designers in the US and Canada have been buying from DrapeStyle for over a decade.

* All prices were as of May 6, 2014.
