I have a half-tester bed and in the past have had fabric curtains, string curtains and bamboo curtains on it. I was looking for something new and this is it!
The swags of netting flow gracefully over the back, twist around the pole across the front, and "float" across the top interior. I am delighted, and there are so many other possibilities because they are unstructured.
I have a king size canopy with a domed iron cover and this canopy fits very nicely. If I didn't have the domed top there would be some sag in the middle. For a smaller bed or to adjust the canopy I think that you could loosly knot the corners and slip over your posts to get the desired fit. I purchased the gold and the chocolate and layered them with the gold under the chocolate. This is a beautiful shimmery and elegant combination. Instead of using the included rope ties I knotted the sheer panels together in kind of a loose knot at each corner about half way down the canopy post and it looks fabulous and brings the panel length to a perfect length without excessive dragging to the floor. I also find that I can just take one corner and hang it on the top post of the bed at the knot and have the visibility that I need to watch tv while in bed. The sheer mosquito type netting provides a dramatic look without weighing down the appearance of the bed.
I ordered the brown - i think it is called chocolate or mocha or something and it is beautiful - more like a bronze because it has a gold sheen to it - it goes great on my dark wood canopy bed. very sexy and romatic and yes theya re super long and fit across my king size bed with plenty hang.
