Rated 5 out of 5 by AandO23 Gorgeous well made drapes!
I am a novice to well made drapes, as we just moved into our new home, but I fell in love with these. I ordered them and am so happy I did! They are surprisingly thick and substantial, the grosgrain trim and pleats are beautiful. They are the perfect addition to my new kitchen. I love the fact that they are elegant and casual all at once. They are very French-country or Tuscan chic. I wasn't sure about the drapery pins, but they are easy to figure out. I got a decorative rod and used curtain rings, but you could also easily use a traverse rod. I have the drapes over my sliding glass doors and the cafe curtains on a nearby window. The valances were on back order but I can't wait to receive those as well to complete the look. I also love that you can coordinate these drapes with many other products...I plan on purchasing counter stools and getting the toffee check cushions, and I bought the toffee check pillows to carry the pattern through into my adjacent family room. Very happy...you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flymoma42 Quality Draperies!!!
I bought these for my den--a Country French eclectic feel room--and these look amazing! Pinch pleat drapes, though a little more work to hang than draperies with a rod pocket they are so, so worth it! The difference in the "look" is classy without coming off as formal or stuffy. I love the pinch pleats but especially love the black ribbon edge trim. It's a great accent to them and makes them stand out a little more. If you're on the fence about these, get off and buy them; you won't regret this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by daisydo08 Great Quality
Not only is the quality great, the style is great. I ordered two panels about three years ago, and they continue to look as good as the first day I hung them. So when redecorating the master bedroom, I could not find drapes that would match the conforter. Looked for months, then it finally hit me I need those same drapes, only in a different color. These drapes hang beutifully and the colors are always spot on. Thanks Ballard Designs.

I fell in love with these the moment I took them out of the box. They look as though they were custom made. They hang beautifully and look perfect on either side of my french doors. Received several compliments on them.
Great quality fabric.

I love these curtains. This quality is hard to find these days. I did have to figure out how to hang them and buy another pack of the hooks that came with it and some rings but I wasn't expecting to get any hardware.

Got more than I expected when I ordered two of these panels. Wonderful quality fabric. Well "weighted" drapery panels. Hang very well. Pleating at the top is done well. The check pattern was larger than expected, however, it worked well in my family room. I would absolutely order these panels again for other areas of my home. Originally was going to order the black check until I read a review claiming the fabric appeared to be black and "pink" checked, rather than black and cream. I agreed when looking more closely at that particular color choice. Went with the sage check and it happened to work out exceptionally well. Totally appreciated the sales price of the panel and it motivated me to move a bit more quickly when it came to making a purchase. Great quality, great value.

Needed curtains for a lakefront bedroom. These check panels with valance were perfect. They are the spot-on level of informality with good looks. The grosgrain ribbon really makes them "finished". Thanks, Ballard for the 105 inch length. Love these panels!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GAmomto2 Love the curtain....Beware of the colors!!!
I love the quality of the fabric and style. I have to send them back because of the color though :( I bought the black check and thought it was a ivory/black check. The lighter color is almost a pinky buff. I have warm butter yellow walls and it makes the curtains look pink. I'm so disappointed! You can't beat the quality for the price, but avoid these if your walls are yellow :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by mnmarlo Toffee Check Panel with Valance
We're using the Toffee check panel as a privacy curtain between the dining area and family room. Using several panels allows us to close it for privacy, or leave it open as desired. It's just the look I was hoping to achieve ... I'm very pleased with the quality, and wouldn't change a thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by amt6 Loved these drapes!
I first saw these drapes hanging at my friend's house. Couldn't believe they weren't custom! They looked marvelous in her home. The lined material on these drapes makes it possible for the drapes to hold their shape and provide privacy. I am very happy with the black grosgrain ribbon trim on the drapes-it is a good quality trim. I also ordered the matching small check pillows for my chairs in the room where my drapes hang. I didn't have any trouble finding black drapery rings to hang the drapes on with the hooks provided. I didn't have to iron the drapes or worry about wrinkles when I unpacked the drapes either!

by SuperCute I love these panels!
These panels add the right touch of "country french" to my kitchen dining nook. The material is substantial and they hang beautifully. Because of the weight, I only needed three panels for my kitchen corner window vs. four, so needed to return one. All panels hit the floor at the exact right place vs. other panels I've purchased. I was a little afraid that the check would come across as "country - but they are absolutely country french. Love them!

I love my new checked panels -- I bought 2 and hung them over my patio door...I couldn't find a patio drapery I liked and finally went with the 2 panels. They fit perfectly and all my friends couldn't say enough about them. I went with the black check. The draperies are of excellent quality and well made.

by ChezMoi These panels provide style and casual sophistication to our kitchen dining area and adjoining sliding door.
We are delighted with the quality fabric and the casual yet sophisticated style of these checked panels. We are also pleased that these lined panels block out the morning cold and the bright afternoon sun.

by gardenmamarama SO nice!
I bought the black check panels for my guest room. They look beautiful, and I could not be happier with them. They are excellent quality, made of heavy fabric and lined. The valanced top gives them a finished look. I love how wide they are on the bottom, and I can close these drapes to cover a very wide window (pictured). I hung mine on rings with clips and I like the country french look. These drapes can be dressed up or dressed down and I don't think anyone can go wrong with them. Excellent!!!!!

I love the drapes! They have a nice weight to the fabric and expensive looking finish detail around the edges with the ribbon and valence at top and lining too. Easy to hang and require no ironing out of the box. Perfect compliment to my Living Room and Dining Room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katydid817 Absolutely stunning.
I bought these in sage check for the sliding door in my kitchen and also the valances for over my sink - they match beautifully and really make my kitchen a showplace! I also have the sage check chair cushions, so the look is coordinated and lovely. I hung these with the enclosed pins (which I had never used before) and attached them to rings so the panels slide open and closed easily. The attached valance really gives the curtain a gorgeous finished look when both closed and open. And the quality of the panels is excellent - you rarely see quality like this in a pre-made curtain. My kitchen looks custom designed (well, really it is)! And I am so pleased with all my Ballard purchases.

These draperies are exactly as stated in your catalog. This is a good thing! Quality fabric, excellent sewing and there are even enough draperies pins in each package to hang the draperies. Hooray, hooray for Ballard Designs. You have not let me down.
