Great curtains for the price. Lining could have been made out of a better material, but can't complain - price was good. The paprika looks nothing like the picture. Was looking for vibrant dark red curtains like the picture. What arrived was a muted brick red. Sent them back. Also got the Ivory, which In reality is an accurate description. What is shown in the picture is more white. Bank on receiving fabric with a cream tone. Very smart. Kept those. Thinking of trying the taupe. I wish Overstock would allow one to take pictures and upload with our descriptions. It would be so helpful, especially in the color department.
The product is good/average-but you know that already because of the price. There is no way to get real silk drapes that pool and are lined and are FABULOUS over the top for 30/pair. These are fine curtains and they look pretty good-meaning they don't look like I only paid about 30/pair and so that is a positive. The challenge is the color. Most of the feedback here is about the color so let's help each other out by creating a color chart. I see paprika is a dull brick color and taupe is more of a dark tan than taupe. Let me share that GOLD is NOT gold or wheat or tan brown. It is light cream. More like eggshell. So, for the next person who orders, know that you only know for sure what you are NOT getting. By this I mean that if you order GOLD you aren't getting green plaid. You still don't know for sure what you ARE getting so keep that in mind and prepare for the potential of sending the product back. If you are good with that, the product is very aggressively priced for what you get. It drapes well, pools well and lets in enough light so the room doesn't feel like a funeral parlor. 4 windows for less than 200 is a very good bargain -but it comes with some risk. good luck!
For the price, you cannot go wrong. I ordered the bluse drapes, and the color is totally different than shown--but much closer to the color I actually want! The blue is actually a softer steel blue, but a bright turquoise like in the image. They also hang much nicer than in the picture. But the back side of the drapes are lined with a white fabric...which is not too attractive, but the drapes suit my purposes.
I did not take the curtain out of the packaging so I can not attest to the quality. I just forewarn people about the color. The Taupe option appears to be almost mauve in the image shown. The color is actually gold. It looks nothing like the computer image. I wouldn't even call it taupe which is a gray/brown it is straight gold. I actually loved the curtains in the color showed, but that was far from the color when it arrived.
Very happy with the 3 pair of taupe curtains I ordered. What a great price for longer length and lined, which is usually so expensive. The fabric is very pretty, does "resemble" silk, but you get the convenience and affordability of easy care, wash at home. I needed 2 pairs and ordered an additional pair to make table runners and valances .... for much cheaper than purchasing fabric. They appear well made, the color was good and length appears even and true. I ran them through a rinse and low heat dry cycle to ease the wrinkles, but a light pressing is needed for best appearance. I highly recommend these.
Many thanks to a previous reviewer (Boston, May 27) who mentioned the color discrepancy of the Taupe. Given the value of these panels, I took a chance knowing the color would be a warm brownish tone leaning more toward gold than gray since my Dining Room has many earth tones. They go nicely, were priced right and add just the right touch. I'd definitely recommend them as long as you are looking for a neutral yellow based wheat-ish color rather than a gray/pink based light brown.
I purchased Paprika for my family room, it makes the room look luxurious. The Taupe curtains are for my dining room/living room, it makes the room look very classy. I'm waiting for River Blue for my yellow kitchen, can't wait! By the way, the 96 inch length is perfect for high ceilings and tall, narrow or wide windows. The set is perfect if you want to separate the curtain set for two separate windows!
I ordered the sage and the light blue. The sage green really leans toward blue or silver tint. The light blue is just that, light blue. They were beautiful, but too thin for a bedroom. I like something that will block a little light and these just don't.
There was area on bottom of 2 panels that was darker than remainder of drapery similar to a grease stain. With the panels bunched up, it is not really noticeable. But if I had seen them in a store, I would not have purchased with this defect. I did not return them however because it was too much trouble and expense. No one but me will be aware of defect. They are beautiful drapes, very soft, and great price.
I inquired about the lining of this drapery before purchasing, only to receive a reply that was of no value. Purchases anyway only to find the lining quality was not an actual drapery lining but something so thin it should never have been labeled as lining. Returned the item. Another problem with ordering on line, paying return shipping & getting nothing.
Beautiful! Not too heavy, but does have light lining to the back. The color is exactly what I wanted. Light weight yet very regal looking. Highly recommend. I am going to order more in different colors once I decide how to decorate my other rooms!
