Luxurious Comfort: Get to Know Velvet Curtains

Inner Layer: Waterfall Woven Wood Shades — Artisan Weaves Cove, Ash / Outer Layer: Grommet Drapery — Velvet, Camel

Unmatched texture, beautiful folds and a stately, luxurious appearance… Velvet Drapery fabric is one of our absolute favorites. If you’re going for a look that’s clean, sleek and sophisticated, we highly recommend velvet drapery fabric.

From Ripple Fold to Tailored Pleat, every style of our drapery looks incredible with velvet. It creates clean, elegant lines when it’s draped all the way from the ceiling to the floor without a puddle at the bottom — and when layered with shades, it adds even more depth and texture to your home interior.

Let’s go over a few tips on how to make the most of your velvet drapery fabric:

Blackout Velvet Curtains

Blackout Velvet Curtains are a great option for bedrooms and spaces where you want more privacy and light control. With added blackout lining, velvet drapery fabric blocks 99% of light and provides excellent insulation.

To add blackout lining to your velvet drapery, simply select “Blackout” in Step 3 of drapery customization online or let a Design Consultant know at your local showroom.

Sound-Blocking Curtains

With its rich texture and elegant folds, velvet makes great sound-blocking curtains. It helps dampen the sound in large open spaces and reduce noise from the outdoors.

How to Wash Velvet Curtains at Home

If you’re wondering how to wash velvet curtains at home, we recommend using lukewarm water and a gentle upholstery cleaner, but it would probably be best to take it to your local dry cleaners. Our Design Consultants at our showrooms nationwide would be happy to put you in touch with the right people for the job.
