Elegant White Silk Drapes with Sheers

Sometimes less color is can be more elegant than more color.  We made these very classic white silk drapes for a Client and layered them with sheers behind them.  The look is more classic contemporary with French Pleats and no puddle.  The drapery length is just above the floor which adds to it’s tailored and contemporary look.  We also added simple white silk roman shades that compliments the silk drapes.  This is a relatively small living room and the light colors and bright windows make the space look larger.

Although the predominant color of the drapes are white, by adding the sheers our Designers have created interest and depth by mixing the textures of the fabrics.

Sometimes white can create an elegant and classic look. We layered these White Silk Dupioni Drapes with White Sheers.

Both the Sheers and Drapes are French Pleated and we have added a white silk top-band to the Sheers.  The hardware is classic iron.  Like this look?  Call one of our Designers and let us show you why for over ten years DrapeStyle has been the best place to buy custom drapes and curtains online.

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.
