I purchased these curtain for my dining room about a year ago. The previous descriptions are quite accurate. They are very nice for the money. I don't feel they are excellent only because they are not lined and don't have a super rich look to them. I have them hanging in my rather ornately decorated living room and they blend quite well. I have them pushed in a closed position with another curtain in between over my sliding glass door. I don't feel that they are too thin despite not having a lining. You cannot see through them from the outside at night. They let in a little light through the decorative jacquard pattern. I do need to still open my curtains during the day time in order for my plants to receive enough light. The color was better than I expected...I was concerned that they may be too gold, but they are a very nice addition next to my deep mauve colored walls. I have muted gold accents in the room, and they match quite well. Overall, I'm very pleased that I purchased this product.

I ordered one panel in shell, and I just thought I'd warn anybody who also has a monitor that displays inaccurate color that shell isn't white/black (as it appears on my apparently overly contrasted screen) it's more of a beige/black. They're lovely curtains, I am sad they won't match my room because of the beige!
These curtains really are beautiful and bring together everything in my living room. The price really kept me from purchasing them, but at the end of the day I'm glad I did! Just so you know, they are unlined so when the sun hits them directly it's hard to see the color and pattern...but when there is indirect sunlight and at night (when indoor lights are on) you truly see the beautiful colors and pattern. They are thick enough to keep sunlight out though. Another reviewer was correct that they do not hang like the picture...but I don't think that's a big deal. I gave 4 stars for value and overall because I wish the price was lower!
Before buying we looked closely at the photo to see how it was gathered and pleated at the top. The product we received was not gathered in any way, so it certainly doesn't hang very nice. The material was much lighter weight than expected but does do a good job of blocking much of the light.
I've ordered and returned way too many sets of curtains - they tend to look so different at home from the way they look on the screen! I finally found a set worth keeping. The taupe is a true beigy-taupe just like in the picture, and the pattern is a little darker than in the picture. (In some lighting, the pattern almost looks golden, although not in a crass or obvious way.) These curtains are really much more elegant in person that in the picture. They are light-weight and have a significant sheen, which makes them look very elegant in an antique-y way.

I am very happy with this purchase! You will have to find the brackets and rings, but it's easy at your local home improvement store. My dining room has an entirely new look that I designed around these curtains...and I have NO talent for such things!
