I have several issues with curtains. Mainly because they’re a nightmare to source. Why are they so complicated? And it’s not just me, I have it on good authority, that i’m not the only interior design-y person that hates looking for them.
Brigitte loving her drapes. Something i’ve never experienced. Ever.
Can you believe i’ve still not found any a) I can afford and b) like for our living room… and we’ve been here for nearly five years now.
Completely by accident, I stumbled across some pretty darn cool curtains on Society 6. I was on there filling my basket with artwork, when I noticed a new section on their site. I knew these guys sold shower curtains, throws, wall hangings, bedding etc… but it seems they’ve branched out into window coverings, launching their curtain range just last week.
Each panel is 50 inches x 84 inches (about 127cm x 213cm), so not great for period properties with high ceilings, but should just about work in homes with average 2.4m high ceilings.
A few people have already requested a longer length option on their site, so keep your eyes peeled incase they cave to demand. They’d definitely sell more if they offered a better range of sizes.
“The thick, but lightweight, polyester fabric filters sunlight to create a dim glow you’ll want to relish in all day long. And they’re super easy to hang, just slip any curtain rod into the four inch pocket at the top and you’re good to go.”
So basically, you’re going to need black out blinds if you’re thinking of buying some for your bedroom. But for a light window covering, they would do the trick.
They’re priced at about £60 for a single panel and £95 for a pair. Which isn’t too bad, but a 10% discount certainly helps, which you’ll get if you sign up to their newsletter.
They’ve got a real mix of designs available so it’s worth a look. And it seems more and more artists on Society 6 are uploading their artwork in the relevant sizes so it translates to curtain dimensions.
The concept is great, but I’d be really interested to see the quality of the fabric and print before I start getting too excited.
Anyone fancy ordering and letting me know?
So whadya think? Any designs here take your fancy? There are certainly some that take mine. Especially the gradient/ombre designs which would be perfect for a Scandi, minimal room design don’t cha think?
Do you have any go to places to shop for curtains? Places where the price point doesn’t require me to take out a small loan. Spill!
