Rated 4 out of 5 by admay103 Perfect contemporary grey
I was searching so high and low for warm grey curtains that weren't too tan or too much of a cool gray, which is extremely hard to determine the right color online! After some wrong colors, I found this style and color (gray storm front) in the store and thought it just might be the perfect shade - and it was. I'm thrilled with the color - my only personal downside was I was hoping for the backtab look, not grommet, but finding the color made me switch.
I am using these to cover a patio door and they are the perfect balance between blackout and sheer. They do let some light through but the room is noticeably darker with them closed, especially with the width exceeding the doorway. Being grommet, they are at the same time extremely compact on the side when they're open. Love them for this.
Only gave 4 stars though since unfortunately 2 of the 4 I ordered came a bit imperfect - 1 had a hole and the other a snag. So I'll be returning to the store and reordering. Otherwise great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DecoratingHouston Great color, hangs well, few wrinkles
The Roman Stone color is a light, warm, creamy sort of ivory and goes very well with my sage-y green walls and the assorted caramel brown tones of the woods and furnishings in the room. A brief spin through the dryer with a wet kitchen towel was enough to shake the wrinkles out.
The fabric has enough weight to drape well but it is definitely a looser-weave casual fabric, although it looks perfectly fine in my slightly formal-but-eclectic living room. The weave makes the drapes slightly transparent when closed. I have them over white sheers, and between the two it is enough privacy for the few times they are closed at night.
These hang floor to ceiling in my room and I did not notice any significant variation in hems over the six (6) panels; everything hangs evenly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by justwantcurtains Couldn't get rid of the smell
We got 8 of these for our master bedroom . Loved the texture, the amount of light they let through, the color (hay) and drape. However, after having them in our bedroom for about 2-3 days, the entire room smelled like tar. After eliminating other possibilities, we realized it was the curtains--when we took them out of the room, everything was fine again. I was surprised that no one else had mentioned that problem in the reviews. We hadn't noticed a smell when we first took them out of the package (maybe the heat of the sun brought it on?). We tried washing a set a few times and they still smelled strongly enough that we couldn't hang them back up, so unfortunately I think they'll have to be returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MimiCarla Love these panels!
We bought these for our upper screen room for privacy, as well as decor and it serves both purposes very well. The weave is thick enough to be private when needed, however, open enough to allow the breeze through when necessary. Definitely a great investment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ABearsfan Color was terrible.
This would have been a wonderful purchase had there been any shade of yellow in the color. (Was called "moss yellow".) The quality was great, and they arrived as scheduled. However, they were a big disappointment as the color was a cross between wheat and pea green. And since the store here was closed recently, and I'm not going to drive 45 miles to the nearest store, nor will I pay more money to send them back, I'm stuck with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TXGal44 The curtains look great.
Martha curtain panels are the perfect color (mahogany) and hang beautifully. Plus they're washable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by luv2shop200 See through and not wide enough
The worst thing about these curtains is the lack of a lining. The sun will bleach these out in a month or two without a lining. The other thing that bothers me is although they are 50" wide, the grommets pleat the curtains so that they can't spread out wide enough. This leave light coming in about 4 to 6 inches on either side of the panels. And third, you can see through them, so the sun shines through as if they were sheers. All in all, a real disappointment.
