Did Drapery Make A Comeback

I think it was the 80’s that pushed drapery into a coma for the next 20 years. A sudden overdose of balloon valances, ruffles, and horrible floral prints closed the door on drapery for the next 20 years.

Fast forward to 2018 and where’s drapery hanging today?

Let’s start in Vegas. Every hotel has used forms of drapery to show luxury at it’s finest. The Aria hotel features layers of motorized sheers and blackout drapery, which magically open as you walk through your hotel door. The Wynn hotel uses whimsical fabrics and embellishments on every corner of their casinos’ floor to create an Alice in Wonderland effect.

How about France? Drapery is everywhere in France but most impressively Marie Antoinette’s drapery still hangs 220 years later in the Palace of Versailles.

Last year at Fresh Design over half of our clients requested some form of drapery. We designed a wall of modern grey sheers to divide two spaces in a Chances Casino. One client fell in love with some shabby chic roman shades for her guest room. Another client was wowed by gorgeous velvet drapery that hung 12 feet high in her Living Room.

Clients are starting to notice that drapery is an essential part of the design. The fabric selection and custom tailoring can define a room’s entire style. Drapery adds the finishing touch that brings the whole room together.
