Knotted curtains are still around, unfortunately.

The knots wrinkle the fabric permanently.

It’s not attractive.

Really?

If the fabric is too long, cut it.

This is what happens to your drapes after knotting them too much and too long!

Stylish Sofas

December 16th, 2015 · 5 Comments

Looking for new furniture for your home?  We have some suggestions.

Try a patterned fabric so it hides stains.

A busy pattern will attract attention from guests.

The couches complement the lovely lamps.

A wave design adds a sense of flow to the sofa.  Placing the rug askew creates a jaunty look.

Multi-colored fabric allows for millions of decorating options with color.
