French Return Drapery Hardware is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 236.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality Good quality and easy installation, and looks beautiful when installed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality, look beautiful Beautiful, excellent quality. Purchased these after trying to save money buying a box store brand. These were 100x better and and an excellent value. Easy to install, our windows were up against a corner so did not have room for a finial, these were the perfect solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rod. Make sure you get the right size rings! I love it! Easy to install. Looks great. I accidentally ordered rings that were too big, thinking I needed to size up for the rings to fit so ordered the 1.25” which were WAY too big. I believe the 0.75” rings should probably fit better but haven’t tried them yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from French Return Drapery Hardware These curtain rods are great for windows with tight spaces between walls

Rated 5 out of 5 by from French Return Rod Great rod for the price. Have put up 6 of them to date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect solution for tricky windows I purchased 4 of these rods for a set of bedroom windows with angles. I did not have the space to use rods with elbows. This rod is perfect; the narrow linear base allowed me to put them very close together. When the curtains are pulled back, it looks like a custom continuous angled rod. The pole of the rod is more narrow than I would typically choose, but it worked like a charm in my tricky spot. Top quality like you would expect from Ballard at a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for tight spaces I love this design. I needed rods that could fit inside a dormer window space where there is no room for finials, and these are perfect! Beautiful color, too. I did not install them myself--I recommend using a laser-level device to make them straight, as that makes the installation more precise and efficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I was hesitant to purchase these curtain rods, but they were such a great price, I bought two for our home (gold and antique bronze). I was super-impressed at the packaging. They were well protected and in perfect condition. These rods are sturdy and beautiful. I wouldn't hesitate a second to purchase them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful drapery rod I bought this rod sometime ago and did not get an opportunity to review. Just installed one and I love how easy it was to install and how lovely the drapes hang. It makes all the difference in the world. Its special feature is in the wrap around so there is more privacy. Now I am buying another rod for the living room.
Date published: 2020-12-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from French Drapery Rods These rods are well made, classic, and beautiful. I bought all 3 offered sizes in brass for my family room. My only negative comment is that the largest rod size should have come with 2 center brackets to support the span. I had to order another bracket at additional cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Golden Perfection I ordered these for our narrow master bedroom windows to flank the side of our linen headboard. We did the gold and they are absolutely perfect! The curtain slides easily, they are sturdy and the gold is a great finish, not too bright.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from French return rods. Beautifully designed and manufactured. Perfect diameter for Ballards light weight linen tie top drape which are delicate in appearance. The rods work with my 9 over 9 glass pane windows and custom white antique iron sleigh bed. I have an antique dressing table and chest in the room that are French in design that are from the 20's and small n scale. White antique bentwood bistro style chair and white side table. I Love the gorgeous brass rods. I have custom French return iron rods in my living room that were made to match a French style chandelier that was purchased several years ago from Ballards that has a darkened bronze finish. These rods were quite expensive and for a secondary bedroom I didn't want to spend as much, thus my purchase from Ballards. Ballards French return rods are lovely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and chic I first bought this curtain rod for over a drafty back door at my previous house, and it worked beautifully. I've since bought 4 more for my new house. I love the touch of industrial chic they add, and since the rods go all the way to the wall (they "return"), there's more coverage provided by the curtains.
