Small Drapery Medallions:  With a size ranging from 2-1/8” – 2-7/8” our small drapery medallions are still perfect for creating softness in a design solution, but allow for a heavier drape than the extra-small size.

Medium Drapery Medallions:   Medium drapery medallions are 3” – 4” and are our most popular seller.  These sized medallions are perfect for use in many window treatments and are perfect for sheers, valances and much more.

Large Drapery Medallions:  Another great seller, our large drapery medallions are 4-1/8” – 6”.  These are useful in many of the same design situations as medium drapery medallions, but allow for a heavier drape and cane be a great choice when you want your medallion to pop from the curtains and stand out.

Extra-Large Drapery Medallions:  Our Extra-Large drapery medallions are 7-5/8” +.  A great medallion for use in foyer treatments or treatments with very, very long drapes (like used in a great room), the extra-large medallion will stand out and be seen from the floor.

All of our medallion sizes are available in an array of finishes, styles and projections.  Easy to install, Metropolis Iron’s line of drapery medallions comes with all necessary hardware, touchup paint and instructions.

When you think drapery medallions, round, simple medallions are probably the first (and only) style medallion or rosette you can think of.  That is probably because it’s almost the only type of drapery medallion, curtain rosette or window treatment holdback that is commonly available on the market.

Metropolis Iron is daring you to think differently for your next window treatment design.  How?   Consider square drapery medallions for your next design project.

Like our extensive line of round drapery medallions, square medallions also come in a range of sizes from extra-small to extra-large.  Square medallions are forged from the same methods quality materials as their round counterparts, ensuring that you are getting a strong medallion that was crafted with quality and care and will stand the test of time.

Square medallions can be particularly useful in design ideas where the curtain involves a square or checkered pattern as they enhance and compliment the shapes represented in the drapes.  General projection for square medallions is 3”, but as with all of our medallion products, custom projections are available upon request.

So, dare to be “square” with Metropolis Iron’s square drapery medallions.

Medium/Large drapery medallions are by far the most popular choice for designing eye popping window treatments.  While, extra small, small, and extra-large drapery medallions are perfect for custom design projects that require a different sized medallion, the most commonly used medallion sizes are medium/large.

Medium/Large drapery medallions range in size from 4 1/4” to 6” and are best used as a stylish alternative to a traditional drapery rod.  Using medallions in your window treatment design allows you to swag, swish and drape in ways that drapery rod applications cannot.  Metropolis Iron’s enhanced line of medium/large medallions all include a simple to install wall mount bracket.  Projection for our medium drapery medallions is 3”, but custom projection is available upon request for design projects that include shutters or blinds.
