These are great quality valances. The fabric is thick and the design is very trendy. Goes great in office, bedroom or in a kitchen which is where I use them.
I bought 3 sets of valances as I was not sure what would look best in the kitchen. In addition to this one, I chose one with a brown background with brown & aqua leaves and another set was the ivory with French script valances with black piping. All three valances were beautiful and exceptional high quality. I chose to keep the Document Fossil trimmed in dark brown with a light beige or "natural" color because it was more subtle and not as busy of a pattern as the others. Overstock showed the valances I chose pulled straight across the window. Unless the bottom of the valance has the "S" curve on it, it is not attractive stretched just straight across. I bought 2 panels for two large windows side by side with one drapery rod and the valances are slightly gathered since there was excess fabric. I bought a third valance to go over a smaller window and I also gathered that one. The gathered look on the valances look so much more expensive and unique than the fabric pulled straight across. I am extremely happy with the Document Fossil valances and the other two patterns that I ordered were beautiful as well. One cannot find any valances anywhere close as beautiful and as high quality as these in a store. Most stores do not even carry valances any longer.
I just remodeled my kitchen and this valance works great with my off white cabinets and black granite counter tops. I had been shopping around and was about to purchase fabric with the French script when I saw this already made. Saved me some work and it looks great.
While most would purchase these for a common area, my intentions were different. These Adorable Valances are the Perfect addition to the Bedroom of a Student who is taking French Class in High School! Pair them with an Ivory (Black or Red) Bedspred, add a few French Theme throw pillows and you have a Newly Inspired Bedroom. Very Well Made, Heavy Duty Fabric, Worth Twice the Price! Remember, a little bit of encouragement goes a long way with our children.
