Rated 5 out of 5 by BeachMomOf3 Perfect addition to any room
We purchased 4 panels, in chocolate, for our family room. I chose to hang them from drapery hooks and rings to dress them up a bit. We have custom drapes in our living room and dining room and these drapes are every bit as nice. They provide the perfect subtle touch. We have received multiple compliments on them and are considering buying the drapes in Spa for our master bedroom.
The quality is fantastic. - Thanks Ballard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ellen77 Great quality
I hesitated purchasing these curtains because it annoyed me that they weren't sold in pairs and I thought they were over priced. However, I could not find anything similar and eventually caved and purchased them. They are a perfect fit for our dining room....elegant, well made, and nicely lined. I hung them on rings to make them look more formal, but that is a personal preference.

by JmansMom Beautiful - worth the splurge
I had admired these curtains for a long time but hesitated because they are spendy. But we recently bought a house so I decided to go for it and bought them with the spa slipcovers and Granada Blue Rug (both also from BD). The curtains are beautiful and worth the splurge. I am very happy with these purchases together!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RenoqueenCA Classy, elegant yet not too formal.
Purchased ten panels for a large living room. Have opened only one panel so far as we are renovating. It is as beautiful as I expected. The ivory embroidery, tone on tone looks rich and classy. Panel seems well made. Can't wait to open the other nine and hang them. Will let you know!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ked71 these panels complete the room!
We hesitated to buy these panels; first because of the price and second because of the fact that we needed 8! But we are so glad we did! They give such visual interest to the room and help jazz up our neutral furniture. We purchased the gray panels for our living room and spa for the adjoining dining room. At first I wasn't sure about having 2 different color panels in rooms so close, but it is not a drastic difference and the tone is just right for each paint color. In fact, they seem so versatile, I think the spa would go with many variations of blue and the gray panels would work with many different gray paints.
We did have to exchange one panel because its pattern did not match up when I closed the curtains. But all worth it because they look and feel gorgeous!!

These curtains are heavy, well-made, and attractive without being gaudy. The dual pocket/tab construction provides for two different aesthetic effects. Very nice!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Liketostylehome Nice lined panels
I bought 5 of these panels. They look very nice on my patio and dining room windows. I was pleased with the quality of the fabric and the embroidery. They are a nice weight, with nice lining. My only complaint was that the lengths were not consistent. I had to rehem them to even out the 84" panels. I also needed 63" panels and valances. I shortened another pair of 84" panels and used the excess to make valances. I bought an extra panel and made valances for the 84" panels. It would be wonderful to offer more sizes and more styles with valances. I also bought the matching pillow covers. That looks very nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jerseygrl73 Beautiful Quality Drapes
I just bought a new home and ordered two other sets of drapes for my living room and just didn't like any of them. I am not one for patterns, so I took a chance on ordering these Firenze panels in the gray pattern and could not be happier. I have a very neutral living room and these added the "pop" I needed to add more interest to the room without being overwhelming. They really compliment my décor very well and again, I can't stress enough how subtle they look, but yet are very interesting. And also, they are very high quality - very heavy material that just feels good and magnets at the bottom to hold the curtains down.....I ordered 96 inch so that they drape longer onto the floor in a gathered look....highly recommend these to anyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by budsmcgoo Beautiful curtain but surprised by quality and shipping costs
I have gotten many items from Ballard and have always been happy. The pattern and color of these curtains look beautiful in my room. Sadly, I was very disappointed by the quality of both the weight of the lining and how much extra, bunched up lining fabric there was. I'm worried how much worse it might get after dry cleaning. There is also a lot of extra lining material folded into the side seams which caused bunching. The sides of the curtains do not hang evenly because of this. I did press them and it is a bit better but not what I expect from this company especially for the price. The bottom length is also not straight. Not sure if I just got some duds or if they are all like this. Also - the shipping for a 12 lb package with 4 - 84" panels seemed very high especially since I am not that far away from them. Sorry to be so negative but I wish I had been aware of these things before I purchased. I recently received lined curtains from another company and the quality of the workmanship of the Ballard curtains does not remotely compare.

Lovely drapery panels. Nicely made and substantial. I ordered swatches first so knew the color would match perfectly (went with gray). I was somewhat hesitant at first as I have custom drapery throughout. No worries, they work beautifully in my family room. Very pleased with purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mingy1 Beautiful Drapes....But
They are beautiful drapes which are hanging in my living room and dining room. They are of good quality with beautiful embroidery. However, there needs to be better quality control of the drapes. They are at least 1-1 1/2 inches shorter than advertised which required me to open the substantial hem and lengthen them.

These are very nice curtains. Thick, lined, and weighted. There was even a little extra hem which allowed me to lengthen these.

I ordered these for my family room. I was looking for ivory/sage but they didn't come in that color. So I tried the all ivory. The ivory is a darker ivory and the embroidered tread is more of a light tan or beige. I love the drapes not sure if I like the color of the ivory. Still on the fence if sending back. Im ordering the gray to see if I like better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuvsMountains Beautiful---but too short :(
I looked for 6 months for something to fit a very large room with many windows. Like many houses now days, we have large windows, and these would have been perfect, except, the length was not long enough. I wish more companies had 120+ length. I was so disappointed that I had to return these. They are so pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bajbajbaj29 Perfect finishing touch!
Love these panels! Yes, they needed to be ironed a bit (but expected that), but they hang beautifully and look wonderful! I appreciate the tabs on the back, as I prefer that look as opposed to the rod pocket. I have these hanging in my home office against dark brown/gray walls (I have the chocolate and ivory panels) and they just look great! I have plantation shutters in white on the windows, so was afraid the ivory would look odd against them, but they look just fine, especially with the darker walls for contrast. Highly recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by COMom Expensive but lovely
The price almost stopped me from buying them and that's when I only thought that I needed two panels to cover my sliding patio doors (turns out we need three panels for them to look right when closed). Honestly we probably could have had drapes custom made without the obvious seams where the panels come together for that price. On the other hand, the fabric and quality are beautiful and I love how they look in my space. I might not have done it this way, but we're keeping them...without regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ArleneS Much prettier in person
These panels are very rich looking. Much nicer in person. The only problem I had was that the design on the first two panels that I purchased did not line up. I had to order two more panels to get pattern to line up.
Will be returning the other two panels. But they are indeed beautiful!

I bought the grey color for my living room and they are perfect!!! I fell in LOVE with them online and wasn't sure I wanted to spend that much money on curtains so I started to search for something similar, but less expensive. I looked for many months and nothing compared. Nothing. These curtains are a prime example of getting what you pay for. Honestly, when you think about the fact that they are made with high quality fabric and lined they really are not overly spendy. These curtains make the room!!! Like other reviewers have said, they have the look and feel of being custom and they give the space they are used in just the right touch of luxury and class. Also, they blend well with so many styles; they are classic without being traditional (our living room is a mix of all things Scandinavian, modern and classic). So glad I bought them, I smile every time I walk into my living room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emmy8 High Quality Panels
I considered these drapes for several months, mostly because I couldn't decide between the grey or spa blue. I didn't want the blue to be light in color and needed it to be more of a slate blue. It is and they look fantastic, with my decor. The quality of these panels exceeded my expectations. I love the hidden tabs, for hanging, as well as the lining, which help the panels hang beautifully. Yes, you will have to iron these panels. I've never bought a panel in my life, that didn't require some ironing. They're folded, in a package so of course they'll have some wrinkles. It's a one time ironing though and a life time of enjoying them.

I've been eyeing these panels for a while but hesitated with the purchase because of the price and due to the fact that I could not see them in person. Last year, I finally took the plunge and purchased the chocolate panels for my dining and living rooms. These panels exceeded my expectations; they are beautiful in person and add character to the rooms. The quality and weight of the fabric is exceptional and the rod tabs make them easy to hang. They go with everything. Even my husband was pleased with them! I ended up purchasing more for my family room and will also purchase another pair for our office.
