I am furnishing (a bit in advance) an almost completed house. Primary consideration is being given to the window coverings, even though we live miles from the nearest observer. Being a night owl, I prefer the stars in the evening to the sun in the morning. These really answered my needs. The weight is good. Some reviewers suggested 10 minutes or so in the dryer with a wet cloth to shake out the wriinkles. Good advice. I hate ironing. I don't feel like a mole, in eternal darkness, and since my double paned windows are currenty leaking air like a ballon with 40 small holes, the drapes are holding back our 40 mph north winds more than adequately. It is too soon to speak of energy savings, as everything in the house is new and upgraded from our 20s farmhouse. Things will be much cozier all around, and the drapes get their share of credit. The price was a nice surprise as well. I have hunted online and in stores when I get near one, and could not match quality,, color and price with what I ordered from Overstock. Shopping at Overstock is usually my first and last resort. Checkout O.co, cruise the competition, read the reviews and come back here.
