Window Treatment Trends for 2013

Posted by Misti On December 31st

Trendy Drapery Medallions

Throughout 2012, we’ve seen some great home design trends emerge, especially trendy window treatment designs.  One major trend that we’ve noticed in 2012 is “less is more.”  This trend is especially seen in the window treatment industry.  Gone are the days are multilayered, heavy drapes, hung from traditional rods.  2012 saw an explosion of sheers and lighter weight drapes, being hung or even swaged, with drapery medallions of all shapes and sizes.

Another trend we’ve seen changing is the type of rod being used in many drapery designs.  We’re no longer seeing traditional rods, but trendy rods with custom finals to match the design of the room.  Also, we are seeing drapery medallions being used in many more design schemes.  Medallions can be a great alternative to drapery rods that allows curtains to be hung in awkward spaces or to just create a unique look.

Metropolis Iron keeps all of the hottest window treatment designs in mind when creating new medallion, holdbacks, and curtain rod and final designs.  Check out our website for the latest on new products and upcoming projects!  Happy New Year!

Drapery Medallions for Massive Windows

Posted by Misti On December 24th

Extra-Large Drapery Medallion

With home designs changing, the drapery hardware  industry has had to evolve and change to fit the needs of homeowners and interior designers.  One of the biggest trends we’ve seen at Metropolis Iron is large windows including 2 and 3 story windows and windows that take up entire walls and leave little room for hanging of traditional drapery rods.

Drapery medallions work wonderfully for all types of large window treatments.  For example, for large 2 and 3 story windows that we often see used in great rooms, an extra-large drapery medallion has not only the size to be seen, but the strength to hold longer, heavier drapes.  In instances where a window takes up the majority of a wall, a medallion is small enough to contended with even the most compromising spaces.

Our large line of custom drapery medallions allows for every design plan.  Our medallions come in an array of sizes, designs & shapes, and finishes.  Visit our website to learn more or drop us a line at Misti@MetroIron.com to discuss your custom drapery medallion needs!

Drapery Medallions for Curved Walls

Posted by Misti On December 10th

Drapery Medallions with a Curved Wall

Curved walls can pose definite issues when trying to create a window treatment. With companies like Metropolis Iron you can have a drapery rod custom bent to the curvature of the wall. However, there aren’t a lot of companies that specialize in fabricating custom drapery hardware or perhaps the budget doesn’t allow for a piece of custom drapery hardware. In either case, it’s necessary for interior designers, drapery workrooms and homeowners to find alternative methods to hang decorative window treatments in rooms that have curved or bowed walls.

Drapery medallions are a perfect solution to the curved wall issue that so many of us run into. Medallions don’t require a straight wall as a drapery rod does and as in the above picture, can create a custom window treatment style and design. Additionally, medallions can be hung to suit any window design such as arch and bay windows. Using drapery medallions creates an element of flexibility and creativity not always available when using standard drapery rods

Metropolis Iron’s line of drapery medallions are perfectly suited for use on curved walls and includes an array of designs, styles, sizes, shapes, and finishes. While browsing our online catalog, if you don’t see a medallion that suits your needs, just ask. We love custom orders! Thanks to HGTV for the great photo!

More homes are being built with great rooms and large foyers that have high ceilings.  The need for drapery hardware that has the correct projection, size and strength for longer, heavier drapes has become a common request at Metropolis Iron.    These spaces require window hardware that is large, visible and strong.

Metropolis Iron’s extra-large and large drapery medallions are perfect for great rooms and rooms with higher ceilings.  Not only do they provide the strength that longer and heavier drapery panels require, but with a maximum diameters ranging all the way to 10” they stand out from the drapes and the rest of the window treatment.  As they come in a variety of shapes and finishes, large drapery medallions can be used in even in common and custom window treatment designs alike.
