by Livermorelady Elegant and practical addtion to room
I ordered these for a bedroom because I needed blackout quality and wanted some insulating properties. They appear to do that very well, though I've not yet slept in the guest room. But pulling them closed in the daytime leaves me pleasantly surprised as to how dark the room is. The gold fabric has a lovely shimmer which wasn't so evident in the pictures online. They pick up the light and tie together with the brass or gold accents I have in the room. Can't speak to the durability long-term, but I washed and dried them as I needed to shorten them, and they turned out beautifully, no ironing needed. I ordered the gold color, 6 panels 95 inch size, including a couple extra panels in case there was a great disparity in lengths or stack back (fullness), but just returned the extra two as not needed. Four covered a 70 inch window very well and I have them stacking against the wall in order to get the full light. They are not bulky and hang well. Note to manufacturers: I am irritated with all the manufacturers who refuse to accommodate a 90 inch length option. Since the style for some time has been to hang curtains as high to the ceiling as possible, average window length is too short, and 95 is too long. I'd have ordered 90 inch and let the hems down if I'd been able to, which would have been easier than cutting off and turning up, but it worked out and they look great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by badbeau Semi-blackout at best
Wanted these for where evening sun hits and they are semi-blackout at best. Seem to be durable. Arrive with stain on one panel. Delivery seemed to go around the country before arriving; expected them within the week and it was the next before arrival.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RWNJCL Rich subtle angular weave variations
THese drapes are beautiful with both vertical and horizontal lines which contain subtle tone contrasts and reflect light in attractive ways. The richness does not show in the on line pictures.......the reality is very impressive. Pattern is not so bold as to create contrasts in surrounding area.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dotty Not what I had expected
I was hoping for more blackout quality. This does shut out the light after I purchased 2 more panels (6 in all), but still allows light in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Liz122 Good Drapes - Need Steam Iron to Look Good
First - I checked these drapes out in the store. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. My size wasn't in the store, so I ordered on line after reading reviews.
Drapes were creased and a bit wrinkly on arrival. They required a good steam ironing to become smooth. This was recommended before hanging by another reviewer.
They look great and block the light extremely well. We have a south facing window and the only light is what seeps in around the edges.

I love these curtains! They are totally black out panels and do not even need any type of blinds underneath them.
