We used a simple lining and inter-lining to allow these silk panels to stack-back tightly when opened
but we had a different objective for the panel below.
Here we wanted to create soft, uniform pleating.
The secret to getting softly rounded folds is choosing the right lining. You won't have the same results by using the typical lining and inter-lining commonly used with soft silks.

Notice how the ceiling in this master bedroom has varying heights?
We mounted the drapery so that the rods appear at the same height when looking up from the floor.

I love the way we are able to bend the rules a bit and bring new life to old design concepts.
