These are beautiful, crisp, and soft white (not bright white and no yellowish tint). The linen has a great texture and the lining is a quality sateen. The best thing about these drapes is the length. I was able to launder them--yes, I washed them on cold/hand washables cycle and briefly put them in the dryer on medium heat)--I don't understand why people don't wash new items. They shrank about 3 inches but came out looking fabulous. I did steam iron them and the wrinkles were easy to get out. I sewed drapery rings to them and hung them on a chunky rod high above the window, over bamboo blinds (from OS too) and they just skim the floor. These are as nice as RH belgian linen drapes and half the cost. I wish there were more colors available.
These are good quality. But if you want wrinkle free curtains, be prepared for some ironing, especially if you are using several panels -- I used 4 panels per window to make the windows appear larger and more luxurious.

I had been looking for a product similar to the Pottery Barn drapery for my beach house, but didn't want to spend the $$$ for my second home. I ordered two pair for the master bedroom that is a combination of white, off-whites with accents of ocean colors. The color definitely is not a pure white as I expected, but rather more of an ivory color. The color differentiation did not matter in my room but might to somone who was looking for a white-white. The fabric is mid-weight linen, and I like the casual wrinkled look. The construction is good and the drapes hang well with clip rings. Again, Overstock.com did not dissappoint!

I finally was able to hang these curtains yesterday after moving into our new home in North Carolina. Right out of the package, the curtains were wrinkled. However, a good Spritzing with some spray starch and steaming and they were beautiful. I hung them from the tabs on the back and was very pleased with the look it created. Although there was some variation in length between the four panels I purchased, the difference was less than 1/2 an inch. The curtains added so much to the room. They let in a small amount of light and look stunning against our dark teal walls. The fabric is beautiful. Very pleased with my purchase!

I just love these drapes. They are long and make my windows look so much bigger. I could not wait for them to arrive, but as usual Overstock sent them within a few days. Others said they had to be ironed. I'm lazy, so just hung them and hope the creases would just fall out. It's been about two weeks and they are a little wrinkled but look spectacular in my bedroom.

I have been searching for inexpensive linen curtain panels FOREVER! I was so excited when I found these on Overstock and even more excited when I opened up the package. The quality is excellent and the color is perfect. I love love love these panels. I cannot believe the quality for the price. AMAZING!
I like the color of the drapes and also the fact that they are lined with cotton. The drapes are an off white linen and the lining is a white cotton. The drapes are wrinkled when you get them out of the package. I put them in the dryer with a wet cloth and they came out of the dryer with out all those folds. I would buy these again.
The curtains are better than I expected, for which I am grateful! Spending $1,000. on white curtains could have been a BIG mistake, but they ARE ELEGANT, well made, (lining is well done) and they drape beautifully, The pocketed tab top treatment looks great - no naked gaping tabs at the top, just a nice even gather/fold that open & close easily, and look great too. I'll iron them soon, but that will take a while. Not ironed they are shabby chic and that's OK too.

I am using these as my summer curtains in a bedroom painted very deep Merlot with white trim. The white linen curtains are very well made and give a summery feel to the room, which is transformed in the autumn with dark satin or velvet curtains from Overstock. I have not been disappointed yet in all the curtains I have purchased from Overstock, and I really love these white linen ones!
Based on all the great reviews of these curtains I decided to give them a go and purchased 8. I took a risk and washed half of them on a cold delicate cycle and then tumble dried them, again on a cool quick cycle. They did shrink approx 3 inches in length ( I puchased the 96" length), but what I wasn't expecting was that the lining shrank more in length. As a result the side seams puckered and didn't sit flat. Maybe I'm fussy but I wasn't happy with that and I cut the lining away from the side seams and hemmed it separately. I hemmed the base of the curtains that I didn't wash to get them to the correct length. Even these seem to pucker on the side seams once hung, no matter how much I iron and steam them. All in all, I'd say ok, but for the effort I put in, I should have just made some curtains instead!
Used as finishing touch for new French cottage decor in master. Lining and fabric very nice. Color is right on as described. As others have mentioned, the $ is great compared to other linen panels. Be patient with wrinkles...hey, it's linen! Have applied flat trim to leading edges which gives a custom look and hides some wrinkles there.
We looked and looked for curtains for the living room and dining room and found these. I read the reviews and a few people wrote that the white was not stark white so I bought two panels and loved them. We ordered 12 more panels and they are a perfect addition to the space. The white is not yellowed, rather it is a creamy white which is exactly what we were looking for. The high end stores that had a similar product wanted almost twice the money as we paid. We are very pleased we found these and think they are a good quality fabric with a nice cotton liner. The stitching looks well done.
I needed draperies to soften the windows in a NYC midcentury rental. I am an interior designer so I am really particular. I had been comparing drapery panels from ******** ****, **** ***, **** *** ******* and *********** ********. I took a chance on these because they were so reasonable. The fabric is beautiful, they are decently made, and with a lot of ironing these look really beautiful. I pinned them with drapery hooks to make them look tailored and they look great, so put a little effort in and you have a bargain! I just have to stop telling people how cheap they were!
These are a lovely snow white color and a nice light weigh linen, they drape well and look much more expensive than they are. Great product!

I was looking for white curtains for a patio door and these work perfectly. The only thing I should point out is that it did take a long time to steam out the majority of wrinkles and they never go completely away. Also, these are not room darkening and I often wonder what you can see through them at night when the light is on. They are def bright white which is what I wanted.
I read all the reviews about these curtains before purchasing. I have been looking for new curtains for my living room for about a year. I had bought others at a Bed and Bath store, but they were too bright snow white. Returned them all. I didn't want ivory, wanted white, but a natural white, not polyester white. The color was perfect. These are nice and thick. Love the different hanging options. I added black curtain rings to each tab in the back to give a modern look. They end up puddling a bit on the floor, but that is what I expected. Love the casual "organic" look. I read many reviews commenting on what a pain it was to iron each panel. I purchased 8 panels. I am not one to iron... but I thought, maybe I'll do one a day, and expect to be done in a week. Well, each panel took around 30 minutes. I used my Rowenta iron on the steam setting and ironed the back side. I set my ironing board up in front of my dining room table, so the ironed area would lay flat on the table as I went along. They ironed beautifully. It really wasn't nearly as tedious as I imagined. I used to have polyester satin curtains in my living room, and no matter how much I ironed, it still had a faint line of the folds and creases. This linen curtain looks PERFECT! I love these curtains, and have gotten so many compliments on them. They look like I paid twice as much as I did. Great price, great quality! You won't be disappointed.
I am very pleased with this purchase. After waiting for a similar set at a well-known brand to go on sale (it never did), I ordered these based on all of the positive reviews, so glad I did! I was hesitant because although they are nearly half of the price I would have paid at **, they are worth every penny. The curtains are fully lined, well made and have a good heft to them. As some have already pointed out, they are not stark white - rather they are a soft, semi-opaque white (not ivory or cream either). I did have to iron them prior to hanging but they are linen! Excellent item at a fair (if not great) value!
