Duralee fabric and a very custom workroom

You would think every drapery workroom is considered custom, but sometimes that's easier said than done. Madison Lane Interiors uses several workrooms for the various window treatments, bedding ensembles, pillows and any other home decor you might dream up. Each individual fabricator has a place in our business, it just depends on the item being fabricated and all the special requests that may go with it!

One of our favorite workrooms is an individual that we know personally, visit with by phone, facebook, and email, and has all the credentials that a qualified workroom would want. Thank you, Connie, for helping support our business these past 2 1/2 yrs and doing the high quality work we insist on!

Here's a recent living room that received the expertise of Connie's workroom:

The white blinds just didn't have the look we wanted for this living room.


The panels were made from the Duralee fabric shown above. Drapery hardware was from Helser Brothers, and we did request the color to be slightly darker than the color chip in order to match the light fixtures in the adjoining room. The clients had crown molding added in the meantime, so the room really underwent some big changes. The woven wood blinds from Mahn Truc were ordered unlined so the light could still filter through, but they are still able to view the TV.

Notice that the panels were mounted several inches outside the actual window frame to keep the view intact. The vertical lines of the drapery panels really emphasized the height of the wall, and changed the "white rectangle" into a decorative part of the room.

Thanks to our clients, Mr. and Mrs. K! They chose a great fabric for their room and allowed us to put our plan in place!
