7 Statement Window Treatment Ideas and Drapery Hardware

VIA Dering Hall:

To really transform a space, custom drapery is a must! Creative drapery design has the ability to filter light, exaggerate ceiling height, add color and pattern, define vertical space and ultimately complete a design scheme.

SPARK: When you do drapery you HAVE to do drapery hardware.  Drapery Hardware does more than finish off a window treatment. It can solve a design problem; help meet your client’s needs, adds function and  tie the window treatment to the rest of the room. Take a look at Dering Hall’s statement picks and check out the great decorative hardware used in each.


Peace Design

SPARK: Ceiling tracks don’t interfere with the wall  of draperies. Love the cut outs!

Spotted: Our Wood Art Drapery Hardware

I was flipping through the pages of this month’s (July/August) Traditional Home, as always checking out the window treatments in the feature articles when what did I see…! On page 110-111, Orion’s Wood Art in a stunning family room by Sherrill Canet of Sherrill Canet Interiors of New York, NY. The family room was in last year’s Hamptons Showhouse and she made a sprawling space intimate by creating two seating areas- one by the bay window and another by the French doors.



The centerpiece was an oversized ottoman in a great ikat print in pink and black. The same print came up the drapery panels leading edges. Speaking of draperies- the euro pleated draperies were hung from our Wood Art poles and rings in white wash finish with Ornate Flute finials. Shout out to Sherril for a spectacular room and for choosing Orion Iron Art. If we can help you with your next showhouse project- give us a call, we love to do custom projects!



Speaking of iron, check out the aluminum laser cut panel in hot pink in the window. Playing off the geometric wallpaper and bringing a burst of color on the window, it’s  in a really unique way to do window treatments. LOVE IT!
