These are really nice for the price. The faux silk dupioni is beautiful with horizontal fabric texture you can see especially when there is light behind the drape. There is a felt interlining in between the faux silk and the backing, which is a wonderfully soft white cotton. They have a nice silk sheen without being too shiny. These drapes have weights in the bottom corners to help them hang evenly. I ironed them by hand directly on the front surface, and they pressed out great. I started out with a low setting (no steam) but eventually raised the iron temp to the wool setting, and they were just fine. These have a pole pocket as well as 7 fabric tabs sewn onto the header. If you use the tabs, the rod will be hidden behind the header, and I would recommend a thin rod so they will glide more smoothly. I used drapery pins and rings to hang mine for a more elegant look and for ease of opening. The fabric was so strong that I just pinned directly through the back layer of the header. I can't stop looking at them. Very happy with this purchase!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Might be slightly more cream, definitely off-white.

The panels have a great texture and luxury about them. The interlining and lining do not make them stiff -- they hanged nicely. I am returning because the silvery grey color had a green undertone to it which was very noticeable especially when the sun showed thru. Clashed with grey walls.

We bought 4 panels of the 120" length. In natural light, they are a true cream/off-white color. Under artificial lighting (regular indoor bulbs), they tend to have a slight peachy undertone. That would be my only complaint really. They ironed out very nicely and I like how they are double-lined. Since they're a light color, they do not block out light. They are not blackout panels!
First, I must say these draperies are absolutely stunning! They have a flannel lining plus cotton lining and feel like very expensive drapes I have already purchased a peacock color for a guest bedroom, which I love also. One thing I read from another reviewer is that the curtains have a peach undertone to them, which I agree with. I didn't mind because I have an oriental rug in my dining room with many colors so it blended well with the off-white draperies.
nicely lined and cotton thermal layer. these drapes have hidden tabs on the back for sliding on any sized rod for a clean contemporary look. Color is a pink-toned off white. (does not have Ivory's grey tone, bone's neutral or cream's yellow tones)
These panels are beautiful. This is my very first time purchasing ready made curtains. I have always bought fabric and lining and made my own. these are a very affordable option for the silk look without breaking the budget. I purchased 4-108" panels in the ivory and hung them at the base of the crown molding so they are floor to ceiling in length. Long elegant and hang perfectly. The lining is white and they are weighted.The have the look and feel of real duponi silk.

These panels are great quality and an even better price. They really dress the room up. I had noticed the color listed as a green grey or blue grey in other reviews. I find them to be true to the picture. A true silver grey with maybe a slight blue grey tint. We puddled ours a few inches for a more dramatic effect which is often done with silk drapes.

Great looking curtains. They look good and hang well as they are lined and have weights in the bottom. I ordered the off-white but have since ordered some more in the grey for the guest room.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Almost the same - the curtains are a little more ivory in color in real life (as opposed to white).

This is the most bizarre quality control issue I have ever encountered. I ordered 6 panels, and 2 out of the 6 are a different and much darker color, but only when sunlight shines through them! I checked all the tags and packaging, and everything but the lot # matches up. The difference between the physical panels themselves appears to be the inner flannel lining - the 4 lighter panels have white flannel inner lining and the 2 darker panels have cream flannel inner lining. Since there is no way to specify the lot # when you order, there is no way to know for sure if all your panels will be the same color (as far as the off white color goes, anyway). In trying to figure out a solution, I spoke with a customer service manager from the manufacturer, and she also informed me that these panels are not actually "blackout" panels. If they were, there would be "BO" somewhere in the style code and the name of the item would include the term "blackout." I'm not sure why Overstock is selling them as blackout panels, but they are not. They definitely do not black out sunlight, though they do block some light (more than if there were no drapes or only sheers). As far as comparing my experience with some other reviews here, I agree with everyone who says the drapes are beautiful. They are high quality, heavy, weighted, beautiful drapes. I also agree with those who say they have a pinkisk or peachy hue in artificial light, but that did not bother me. I had planned to simply change out my light bulbs since they looked less peachy in another room with different lighting. It's really more of a slight cast than a different color, not enough to be a deal breaker for me. Also, the lighter panels with the white lining are exactly the right ivory color I was looking for. The darker, cream panels are a little more creamy than I would prefer for my room, though I would've kept either color had they all matched. (I also want to note that the outer fabric, the main fabric, is exactly the same color on all the panels; it's the inner lining that changes the overall color when sunlight shines through.) As beautiful as these curtains are, I'm now stuck with mismatched drapes and the 120" length that I need is sold out. Even if they were in stock, who knows whether I would again get two different lot numbers and thus, two different color ivory drapes. It's very frustrating, and I'm super disappointed. I have no idea how to fix the problem without returning all the beautiful drapes and choosing something that I like less while having a way-too-bright bedroom with a newborn coming any day. Buyer beware. (Edited to add: I have also noticed that the darker panels seem to be heavier, more substantial, and block more light than the lighter panels. Again, I don't know why that would be since the only different is the supposed lot number. They are all supposed to be the exact same panels.)
The color was truly off white/cream, the panels are well made with weights in the hem and lined. They are rod pocket with tab back as well, so versatile giving you he option to hang in three ways. 1 rod 2 tab back 3 drapery pins I had to return because I need 108" length and that length isn't offered :( Really nice faux silk - coming from an interior designer :)
I ordered these drapes after reading the reviews that they have an "unusual" hue when in certain lighting. I have to agree that they have a peachy, and sometimes, pink hue to them when not in natural light. In natural, daylight they are indeed, off white in color, but when they are in artificial lighting such as nighttime they are peachy or pinkish. I couldn't decide whether I liked or disliked this feature so I have kept them because they are of a certain quality and I do appreciate the flannel lining and the bottom weights. I can't guarantee the color will be appreciated but I can vouch for the quality of the drapes. After months of having them the color hue is growing on me.
