by emrabin Decent value...keeping.
I actually purchased 4 Fontayne drapes in the khaki colour for different rooms. I loved all the colour options but felt the khaki was the most neutral and would match my decor best. The colour is gorgeous in person, but I was hoping the fabric would be smoother, as it appears in the photo; maybe it would have helped if the fabric was thicker or heavier. Overall, I will keep them and love how they look with the Meridian sheers I bought in the matching colour -- campus khaki. They make a beautiful combination in my bedroom bay window.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Suffolker Don't Iron....
I purchased the silver drapes and they went perfectly with my decor and I really liked the crinkly fabric which made them different (the reason I purchased them). Unfortunately, the way the curtains were folded in the packaging you cannot iron the lines out as you iron the naturals crinkles in the design of the fabric. I ended up with drapes with smooth patches of material. As I got them on a good sale I didn't return them. It took me an hour to iron out the crinkles. HINT: Try to steam out packaging lines by hanging in a bathroom. Make sure when you have these dry cleaned that they know NOT to press as I'm sure you will end up with the same problem.

I bought these in the "campus khaki" color for a newly redone guest bedroom. They weren't my first pick as I was looking for a different color originally, but had to "settle" for these because JCP was remodeling their "home store" and only had a very limited selection. After getting home and putting them up, was I pleasantly surprised! These panels are just gorgeous in my guest bedroom. They hang very nicely. The color is almost golden when the sun streams through in the morning. As others have said, they were slightly more sheer than expected, but adding extra panels made them absolutely perfect. I could not have planned it better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by momof3inOakley Great fancy, shiny fabric of uneven lengths
I love the fabric and how it shines. They look perfect in my dining room and would look great anywhere in the house. I bought 4 panels of the silver ones. They look really fancy.
My only complaints are as follow: It seems like the standard sizes go from 95 inches to 108 inches. That's a difference of 13 inches. 95 happens to be too short and 108" is too long in my situation. Fine. I need to hem them. But here comes the challenge. Each panel that I received was a different length. It ranged from 108.25" to 109.75". Quite the difference! So even if the length would be just right for your needs, hemming would still be required.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GVGranny Good quality fabric, nice color
I ordered these curtain panels in the turquoise color, which was very close to the color shown in the description. Very nice looking, and the quality seemed good. Unfortunately, I did not realize they would be as shiny as they were; they had a sheen. Our decor is SW with lots of "heavy" fabrics, and altho the curtains were very pretty, they were just a little too "fancy" feeling for our room. (Probably not the correct term, as the overall look was fairly casual because of the grommets.) Sadly, I had to return them. Sad, because I have been looking for this color turquoise forever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beamer7 Beautiful curtains, excellent workmanship
I purchased two 108" panels in the campus khaki color. Be forewarned that the color name is misleading; the color is decidedly golden. Another reviewer had mentioned that so I was prepared and this color works perfectly in my room. These curtains have a soft sheen but are not shiny. They hang easily and drape beautifully. The hems are even and the workmanship is excellent. I hung them in a room with a huge window that faces south. They do a great job of diffusing the light so the sun won't continue to fade my upholstered furniture. I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mikatherapy Very rich looking panels!
I love these panels for their unique fabric and color. (madden brown) Its kind of a cinnamon with a dash of paprika color!
I bought these on sale at an excellent price and the large odd corner window I had to cover called for more panels than anticipated because they are approx. 30" wide for the proper fold on the rod. I have 9 pair (tho they are sold per panel) But the price is affordable (for that many!) giving a very rich looking effect with my Tuscan decor. Love em !
