They look awesome thank you!!!

These treatments are a vast improvement. This should be the biggest compliment of all - my husband was not that enthusiastic before these went up and is now raving about how much he loves them. He is now the one pushing to get the living room redone.  

Linda S  | Chicago, IL |  December 4, 2020

They look great and the service was incredible! The individual that installed the window coverings was great, very professional. We can't wait to finish the rest of the project hopefully in the first half of next year.

Terry K  | Chicago, IL |  October 3, 2020

The installers did an excellent job in a timely yet careful manner. They were pleasant to work with and efficient as well. The curtains look great; they add a warmth and softness to the rooms that was lacking with blinds-only. I also enjoyed working with you, as you provided information and guidance that helped me make the final decision on the material and the color. All in all, very pleased! Thanks for a very pleasant curtain-shopping experience!

Honestly couldn't be happier with either of them! Absolutely love the fabrics and the hardware they helped us choose. The Oceana fabric was most definitely the right decision.

We will certainly give you a ring when we ramp up our next window treatment project  

Marlya B  | Chicago, IL |  August 22, 2020

My shades arrived on time and were installed today. With the pandemic impacting all of our lives, I doubted the wisdom of placing the order at this time. However, everything was handled professionally and efficiently. The installers were courteous, knowledgeable, and helpful. The main office proactively covered off on the project bases giving me little reason for concern. It was a pleasure doing business with you.  

Kaitlin H  | Chicago, IL |  August 19, 2020

Eric & Renee S  | Chicago, IL |  June 26, 2020

We absolutely love the shades!!! The mechanized above the door are so cool - We have have “fought” over who would get to raise/lower them each day... glad we went that route. I honestly didn’t realize how much we needed them... we are in awe each day - I think we all made some great decisions and couldn’t thank you enough for your expertise and guidance. 

Kathryn J  | Chicago, IL |  June 26, 2020

I wanted to reach out and let you know that we received the drapery and installed it. It looks great!

Thank you for your help and counsel!

I also wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was to work with you, the measurers and installers. Everyone I interacted with throughout this process was helpful, knowledgable, professional and courteous. The installers were especially fantastic. Given the big scope of the job and the disruption of installing shades and drapes in almost every room of the house, they truly could not have been any more efficient or respectful. A really top notch team!

Jillisa B  | Chicago, IL |  December 14, 2019

I am SO happy! The shades are perfect. They fill the window and the thicker blackout lining makes them hang really beautifully. It makes a genuine difference. You have been absolutely wonderful with your problem solving and follow up. This has been an outstanding experience. Thank you again!
