Fab Fabric Friday!- and box pleats
This Kilim-inspired Pierre Frey velvet on linen will soon be drapery panels in a home office with Venetian plaster walls in a deep rusty cinnabar.
This open box pleat style was the homeowner's choice after we mocked up several pleat options. It is a great style for the irregular geometric pattern.
As soon as the fabric arrived, I evened off the edge and saved the strip to use as a template for trying out different pleats. The centers of each motif area are marked with black Sharpie pen so I wouldn't lose track.
Under the panels will be Roman shades in the linen sheer, with leather lacing appliqued in a grid.
