Bohemian Pleat Draperies

  • The bohemian pleat is great for traditional to contemporary décor with its crisp lines and minimalist form
  • Our pleats are hand folded to form 3 equal fingers
  • The pleats are then tacked ½” down from top and ¼” in from the front holding all the fingers together
  • The bottom of the drapery will have a Eurohem or a double-turned hem—your choice, as the fabric allows

Goblet Pleat Draperies

  • The goblet pleat is a voluptuous alternative to the traditional pinch pleat that gives the drapery a full form with dramatic flair
  • Our pleats are hand folded to form 3 equal fingers
  • The tack is ½” below the buckram holding the bottom of the goblet in place
  • At installation, the pleat is opened and filled with plastic tubes (included with every order) to form the ‘goblet’
  • The bottom of the drapery will have a Eurohem or a double-turned hem—your choice, as the fabric allows
  • The minimum buckram for Goblet pleats is 5″
  • 2 ½ fullness is recommended
Decorator Tip: The pleats will not stack tight because of the dimensionality of the goblet; the dimensions of the goblet are determined by the fullness and the fabric weight. Please allow for this when estimating the stack back.

Grommet Draperies

  • Clean lines and casual charm make grommet curtains and drapes a popular choice for transitional and contemporary décor
  • The top features a fabric-covered buckram, sandwiched between 2 round metal pieces, forming the grommet
  • Click here to see all the grommet colors and sizes
  • We suggest you allow at least 3⁄8″ of space between the inside diameter (ID) of grommet and the diameter of the rod
  • Space is necessary for the grommets to easily slide (grommets slide easiest on a metal rod with ample clearance)
  • Space between grommets will depend on the width of panel, the size of the grommet, and the number of grommets—flair21 suggest spacing the grommets approximately 6″ apart
  • There must be an even number of grommets on each panel
  • The minimum space required from the side of the panel to the edge of the first / last grommet is 1 ½”, this is also the standard. A larger space can be requested
  • The bottom of the drapery will have a Eurohem or a double-turned hem—your choice, as the fabric allows.

Pinch Pleat Draperies

  • The pinch pleat is the most popular style for pleated curtains and drapes
  • This timeless design looks great with virtually any fabric choice and décor
  • Our standard is a 3-finger pinch pleat (3pp), which is hand folded to form 3 equal fingers
  • The fingers are folded together and tacked approximately 1″ from the top between each finger, and also ½” up from bottom of the buckram holding all the fingers together (for thicker fabrics, the tack will be below the buckram)
  • The bottom of the drapery will have a Eurohem or a double-turned hem—your choice, as the fabric allows.
Blur 8110-543 Ring Top Drapery

Ring Top Draperies

  • Ring top draperies are a flat panel design that feature casual, flowing pleats formed with clip rings that are attached to the rod
  • The top of each panel is soft—no buckram is used—it is finished with a fabric-covered micro welt
  • There is a 4″ fabric face on the back of the panel at the top
  • The bottom of the drapery will have a Eurohem or a double-turned hem—your choice, as the fabric allows
  • The number of clip rings used is a design feature to be decided by the decorator
  • The larger the space between clips, the more the top will relax
  • Any desired return can be achieved by where the last clip ring is attached
  • Choose a contrasting fabric to cover the micro welt as an upgrade

Rod Pocket Draperies

  • Rod pocket draperies are a classic, cost-effective design
  • This versatile window treatment that can be used on french doors, side lights and a variety of other unique applications
  • Rod pocket window treatments are available with a single pocket, double pocket or double pocket hourglass—each with or without headers
  • The drapery is gathered on the rod for a relaxed, ruffled effect
  • When the fabric is gathered on the rod, it causes the overall length to draw up, this is called “rod take-up”
  • flair21 recommends you add to your length to allow for this loss, but it is your choice to make this addition, and if so, how much
  • The amount of loss is influenced by: diameter of the rod, size of the pocket, fullness of the drapery and thickness of the fabric
  • Rod pocket draperies on an inside mount or a rod with finials can not have returns

Tiebacks

  • Whether your drapery panels are stationary or functional, tiebacks are an excellent finishing touch to your custom window treatments
  • Tiebacks are available in three styles: straight, tapered and contoured
  • Each of these styles can be made plain, with cording (all the way around) or with trim (on the bottom)
  • All drapery tiebacks come with Dacron filling for a slightly padded effect (buckram can be requested instead, at no additional charge)
  • Small rings are sewn on the back for easy installation (tiebacks for hourglass panels come with a velcro closure)
  • Tiebacks are available in three standard widths: 18”, 25” and 37”
