elegant swags

swags

 

Swags or cascades add graceful curves and soft texture to more formal window styles. These can be perfect for framing a lovely view or interesting focal point in your room.

 

Calico offers these options:

  • Asymmetrical 
  • Classic 
  •  Monaco Pole
  • Pleated Bustle 
Asymetrical

  • The number of swags depends upon window size.
  • A pair of asymmetrical swags is often used to accentuate a fireplace or other focus point.
  • Asymmetrical Swags are board mounted.
  • Add at least 4″ to face width and 2″ to returns of any under-treatment, e.g. sheers, for proper clearance.
  • Silk fabrics should always be interlined.
  • Cascades or swags lined in a print or contrasting darker fabric should always be interlined to prevent show-through of the lining.

  • Monaco Pole Swags are best bias cut. Striped and plaid fabrics will have diagonal lines; cascade and drapery side panels run up the roll.
  • A pair of Monaco swags is often used to accentuate a fireplace or other focal point.
  • Treatment does not return to the wall; there will be slight gap between drapery and wall allowing light to enter the room from the sides.
  • Add at least 4″ to face width and 2″ to returns of any under-treatment, e.g. sheers, for proper clearance.
  • Silk fabrics should always be interlined. Additional under-treatment recommended for sun protection with silk fabrics.
  • Maximum bracket to bracket size is 60″ for this treatment.
  • Mount high enough so molding and glass are not visible.
Pleated Bustle
