Draperies are probably one of the oldest known window treatments, used predominantly in ancient times to control both light & drafts. In Florida they can either be functional, providing light control and privacy, or simply decorative to frame an opening. A vast array of pleated headings is available, and with the addition of contrast colors, trim, and buttons, design limitations are almost infinite. Stationary panels can be either hung on decorative rods and rings, medallions or brackets or simply shirred and affixed to a board which is then mounted directly to the wall.
