Zip Rods allow you to have fully functioning panels on decorative drapery rods without the busyness and clutter of rings.
Notice the difference? The picture below shows the drapery on a wood pole with rings. Really it's a matter of personal preference. Both rod styles function well and with both styles there are limitless wood and metal finishes.
We used a 24 foot extension ladder to install these panels in this marvelous McLean VA home. The ladder in the photo was used by one of our team members to hold the heavy panels while the guy 20 feet up secured them at the ceiling.
This home is very impressive. The wing back chairs are 6 feet tall. Interior designer Ginger Rodriguez, owner of WestBay Interiors hired us to make and install the super long drapery panels.
Here's the view from the upper level of the home.
Our design team also serves as consultants for interior designers. We help work through the details and find the best solutions.
On the other side of the room we installed pleated panels on a larger window. The home owner wanted a Roman Shade on the smaller. She later came up with an idea to have us add the same rod and rings over the Roman. Very Clever,
