Curtains

Fabric, finish, height, light, block out, sheer... So many decisions to make when it comes to window dressing..  

 

A modern favourite is the wave track. If you can have it in a concealed box in the ceiling, even better.  

 

Contemporary K manufactures custom made curtains.

This combination of scatters is made up from the Casamance range, and adds an element of softness to a very modern room.

The tour de France inevitably comes up which becomes a stage for Lance Armstrong and even banned substances...
