This innovative decorating book is a unique combination: a reference book that covers the whole spectrum of window treatments from classical swags and tails to minimalist breaths of muslin -The New Curtain Book is the curtain bible for the twenty-first century. Inside, Stephanie Hoppen presents a series of fascinating master-classes about today's fashionable window treatments, given by more than thirty of the world's most innovative designers. The designs illustrated and described show the whole panoply of contemporary styles and materials. There are classes in classical, traditional designs, and in modern, simple ones; equal weight is also given to dramatic, smart, romantic and country curtains. The fabrics and materials so creatively used by the designers include everything now possible -from glamorous silk, velvet, taffeta and cashmere, through rural prints, formal stripes, canvas and ticking, to twenty-first century Perspex panels, crystal beads and metallic coile. All tastes are represented here, from the unashamedly rich to the most light and neutral of schemes. Supplementing each master-class are portfolios of examples of the work of many other designers, with an emphasis on their own particular innovations, as well as a wealth of technical advice. Concluding with a directory of styles of curtain, accessories, fabrics and blinds as well as a list of outlets where the essentials can be purchased, The New Curtain Book challenges the boundaries of soft furnishing to provide curtain couture at the cutting edge.
