The homeowner does not like her arch. She wanted to hide it. The only proof I have that we made an arched Roman shade is the workroom photos. That's John, holding the shade and waving to me.
Here he is, trying to suck in his gut for this picture. As if. He's a skinny rail these days. The workroom is a real mess, though, isn't it? Trash can overflowing, chairs up on the work table, must have been a busy day. Ha.
This is a ribbed flat Roman. The frame is made entirely from FirmaFlex.
I forgot to take a picture of the front of the frame, before stapling the shade on. Here I've tried to pull the fabric back and get a shot of the inside of the front. It's made to be open, so the installer can get his drill in there and put in a couple of screws up into the top of the window.
The Empire valance is soft and sweet, made from an upholstery fabric with the shade matelasse as the lining.
Lip cord defines the edge. I forgot to take a close-up of the draperies, which are made from the same face fabric plus the lip cord plus brush fringe.
Did I mention this is for a newborn baby girl's room? A nice room to wake up in!
