I couldn't find anything like it in the local stores. Thank goodness for Overstock. The rod was easy to install and is strong enough for the four 63" panels I hung in our kitchen's bay window. The joints are ball pivots so they adjust to any angle you need. I got the black finish - it's somewhere inbetween matte and shiny. I'm very happy with my purchase. BTW, it arrived much faster than I expected.
I rec'd this item quickly, however, the instructions and hardware to hang it were missing. I called O and of course they would take care of it. What I was surprised about is how long it took. What they were doing was checking w/the warehouse to see if they had hardware and mailing that. What I should have had them do was resend the whole set and return what I had rec'd as it would have been much quicker. When you're hanging this you may want to try and put the supports further out so that you can hang the curtains in the bay window area and have them slide right up against each other so they look like they are continuous. My husband followed the direction which included molly bolts so once they were up that was that.

This is a great curtain rod -- very architectural design, sturdy construction, attractive chrome finish. Pair with four window panel curtains and call it a day!

This 3-section rod is AWESOME--looks so much more professional than mounting 3 separate rods in our bay window. Cost is actually less than buying 3 rods too, in my opinion.

I like what I see; I've been looking for over 3 years for a set like this. I'm installing the set in late July, and do believe it will fit my need. I saw this at my son and daughter-in-law's home in Texas, and knew I wanted to purchase. The price is most excellent. I'm looking forward to seeing this rod set mounted at my bay window. Thank you!

Versatile bay window rod is the only option for my large bay window in the bedroom. There are no much options in the stores for that particular window kind and lets say, they are ugly. This one is great and has a fair price. Was easy to install but some of the hardware has very poor quality - I used my own, more durable.
I was VERY disappointed with the quality of the rod. We ordered a gold rod set and the first thing I noticed when opening the box was a strong smell of spray paint. The box had "black" crossed off and it became quite apparent that someone has spray painted gold over it. Most of the gold had flaked off of one the rods. I'm unsure where exactly this transformation took place. I am disappointed in Overstock for shipping something that looked like it had been repacked. On a positive note, we did get a replacement within a week and it was in much better condition.
The bay window in my living room has a very small amount of space between the window and the ceiling. So this set was perfect, as it has really small connectors. Each rod is adjustable. It looks really nice and gives me the privacy I wanted. However the gold/bronze is not actually gold, it's painted stripes on black painted metal. That doesn't look as bad as it sounds, but you wouldn't see that in the picture. On the first set that I ordered the rod would not adjust. Overstock sent me another set (which actually looked to be several returns bundled together, as there were extra parts) and I took the piece that I needed and shipped the rest back.
I adore this curtain rod. Upon ordering, I read the reviews stating the difficulty of installation, however I had no problem. I will say that you need to gage the side brackets closer to the middle or the end of the rod according to how you like your curtains to open and close if you're using curtain rings. I originally had sage coloured Roman shades, because I didn't want three curtain rods on the bay windows, which darkened the room. It's allowed me to heighten the look of my windows and brighten up my whole living room. Overstock definitely had the best price and it shipped quickly.
