Blinds, Drapes & Bedding (Registered 2005) is a window treatment and soft home furnishings consulting and fabrication studio servicing the Interior Design Trade. We custom design, fabricate and install high quality window treatments and soft home furnishings to help Interior Designers and Decorators make their clients’ home dreams come true.
Drawing on our years of experience and expertise, we help guide you to determine your needs and evaluate your space.
We offer advice on the best choice of style, hardware, fabric and finish based on your design needs and practical requirements.
We meet with you on site to establish your and your clients’ needs and wants. We take precise measurements to ensure the final products fit perfectly. Give us a “tricky” window and we’ll come up with a practical and beautiful solution.
We design and fabricate a broad spectrum of products including drapes, sheers, Roman blinds, soft valances, cushion covers, seat cushions, duvet covers, bed skirts, pillow slips, tablecloths/runners and more.
Fabric & Lining
Interior Designers most often prefer to supply the fabric they chose with their clients. We can advise on the best practical choice for each application and calculate the amount of fabric required. If you prefer, we can source or suggest quality fabrics. We stock a selection of quality lining products.
We source drapery hardware only from reputable and reliable companies with whom we have partnered for many years. We also assemble the hardware so that it arrives on site ready to be installed.
Custom window treatments must be professionally installed. We use the service of a professional drapery hardware installer. The final process requires that drapes be steamed and trained into the proper and intended position.
