Drapes in a Box


From the Wall Street Journal:



Window coverings can be a headache to install. Poles, cables, hooks. Brackets, rollers, blinds. It's no wonder people reach for the bed sheets.


Danish textile company Kvadrat turned to Paris-based designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.


Ready Made Curtain, the Bouroullec brothers' new "instant window treatment" system is simple to install and takes the indecision out of décor.


"Everything's in the box," said Erwin Bouroullec, "so you won't be afraid to do it on your own."


Two minimal oak boxes suspend a high-strength cord from which reusable clips suspend a roughly 4.5-by-10-foot length of fabric, alterable with scissors.


Choose from two fabrics (wool and a "nonwoven") and three colors (dark blue, red, and white).



From $440; apply within.

Anyone who's got 440 to spend on a single thin curtain can afford to do it properly and would have something nicer than that. Is there such a word as alterable?

Yeah, that would be a great idea at Ikea prices,
but "starting at $440"??? I don't think people who can afford that are reaching for the bedsheets, they just pay someone do do it for them.

or save a ton and buy regular curtain rods that look a lot classier ... you can even get one that allows you to open the curtains with a tug of a string
