DRAPERIES WE FABRICATED ARE IN HOUSE BEAUTIFUL!!!

Krusen for FB

Check out our work on PAGE 32 of the Feb. 2015 issue of House Beautiful. In collaboration with designer Elizabeth Pyne of the famed New York design firm McMillen Inc., Specialty fabricated the draperies for a Richmond family’s home. Elizabeth has an amazing sense of style and down-to-earth-ness, and we just love working with her. Get to know more about Elizabeth on page 31 of the magazine.

HOW SAFE ARE YOUR WINDOW TREATMENTS?

June-Press-Release-Photo-4575442_172x172October is Window Coverings Safety Month. Cords on window treatments can strangle and permanently injure children. The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that window treatments with cords rank in the top five hidden dangers in the home. Specialty Drapery encourages all parents and guardians of small children to look at the windows in their homes and ask themselves, “How safe are my window treatments?” If at all possible, only cordless products should be in homes and childcare centers where there are infants and small children. Specialty is a staunch promoter of cordless window products. Visit our showroom to see the selection of child-safe products we have to offer.  To learn more, go to the Window Covering Safety Council http://www.windowcoverings.org/.

FROM CLOSET TO GRANDKIDS’ NOOK

Debbie Lovette, co-owner of Specialty Drapery, created a special niche for her grandchildren in a second-floor dormer room. She removed the closet doors and installed custom-built trundle beds draped with curtains that close like a tent.
