We make beautiful bespoke curtains, blinds, soft pelmets, cushions and throws – including all types of blinds, headboards and exquisitely finished upholstered pelmets. Most of the work is carried out in our own on-site workroom. We provide a wide choice of fabrics and we offer a measuring and fitting service.
A lovely way to add finishing touches to a room, we make range of styles of cushion covers & lampshades to co- ordinate & compliment curtains & blinds.
We supply a wide range of fabrics for made to measure curtains and blinds We are happy to advise whether, a particular fabric is suitable for making into curtains and its applicability in a particular setting. We can provide free samples of all our fabrics. The exact quantity of fabric required will depend on the size of the window, the fullness of the curtains, the type of heading and the design of the fabric. Very large patterns may require more fabric in order to match the design.
We always line our curtains, unless they are voiles or sheers. Our standard lining is a good quality 100% cotton lining. This improves the drape of the curtains and protects them from light, prolonging their life. Alternative linings are available. Blackout lining is often used in bedrooms, it is usually white or cream in colour and also adds warmth due to its extra thickness. We recommend interlining for very fine and delicate fabrics such as silks which are more susceptible to sun damage. Traditional interlining involves hand sewing a layer of fleece-like fabric between the main fabric and then hand sewing the lining on top. Alternatively a bonded lining can be used in which the fleece and the lining are fused together, allowing it to be sewn by machine. In both cases the interlining adds bulk and gives a fantastic drape to the curtains
Getting colour and colour combinations right can be a tricky business. There are a multitude of items within a room and they all should sit in harmony with each other. Curtains that fall to the floor should sit well with the carpet, rugs should lift or quieten a room. Sofas and chairs need to be welcoming and inviting. Walls can either be a feature or a good canvas to show art on, and more importantly these all need to work together! We listen carefully to your ideas and the way you want your room to look & feel and would be happy to advise you on how to achieve it.
I'm happy to answer any other questions you might have.
