The material of this product is great, beautiful, and durable. However the gold trim on the curtains, does not match the gold trim on the comforter set. there is a drastic difference. Also the specs said it was black and silver design. Its more black and gold with a slight bit of silver. If you are looking for black and silver, This is a bad choice. However if you are looking for black and gold , this is a great choice. I had to alter the curtains to match. I took out the very dark gold trim.
The style/fabric/design is the perfect balance - not to feminine and not to masculine. Nice design except for the tabs. When you run a rod through the tabs they sag and the result is sloppy looking "draping". I have a sewing machine - so customized the tabs for my specific curtain rod and now they look fine.
Fabric is silky with lovely paisley pattern in soft blues and browns. The brown panel at the top is a semi sheer, so although these will darken a room a little when they are closed, they are NOT completely light blocking, which did not matter to me. they dressed up the look of my windows and family has remarked on how pretty they look.
I had read other reviews on these panels and found them to be true. I am happy that I ordered them, they add a touch of class to my dinning room. The colors are vibrant and yest the top part of the panel is bit sheer but it keeps the room from being overly dark. I am very happy with these curtains.
Despite the reviews, I decided to purchase these panels with the matching Madison Park duvet set. Terrible mistake! These curtain panels are awful. The gold trim is not the same color gold that is used for the trim on the duvet and shams. They don't hang right either because they are so stiff. The black fabric used at the top is sheer, like other reviewers have said, which wouldn't be an issue if the overall quality wasn't so poor.
