French Return Drapery Hardware is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 153.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great The combination of these curtain rods with blackout curtains does a great job at darkening a room. They look good too.
Date published: 2020-07-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits the bill Perfect in the laundry room. Installed under upper cabinets to hold hangers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Curtain Rods We really like these curtain rods because they have clean lines, and somehow look vintage and modern at the same time. They were also easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from French Return Drapery Hardware These were perfect with my silk panels. I purchased them in brass. They are high quality drapery hardware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty in brass High quality. Relatively easy to hang. I ordered these in brass and they look beautiful with the dupioni silk drapes.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from French returns Nice product for a reasonable price. Easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Easy to hang, good quality! I Would buy again and again.
Date published: 2018-11-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally worth it! Just finish installing one window & what a difference nice hardware really does make! It looks beautiful! PS: The gold rings with clips sold by Ballard match. :)
Date published: 2018-11-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Drapery Rod This is functional as well as being very elegant. It isn't bulky like most other rods. I installed them well above the window frame (close to the ceiling) for more dramatic length. I am quite pleased with my purchase and will be buying more for my new home.
Date published: 2018-07-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I bought four of these and will be ordering 2 more
Date published: 2018-05-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect These curtain rods are exactly what I needed. The style enables the curtain to go all the way to the wall blocking out the light from the walkway and also giving me the privacy I need. Bronze color is also perfect. Very happy with this purchase!!
Date published: 2017-04-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice. This rod is nicely made. Very sturdy and the bronze color is rich and beautiful. The brackets that attach to the wall at a good size 31/4 x1 and it comes with a center bracket if needed for a larger window or very heavy fabric. Once installed it does stick out from wall 3 full inches. I placed mine directly to wall on the outside of frame. So keep in mind if you attach it to the frame itself.....it sticks out 4 or so inches. Just something to keep in mind. It is well made and I would purchase again for the right situation. Nicely packaged and worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful curtain rods Study material and instructions were easy to follow. Assembly was quick and all the materials fit well in the final product. Was a little disappointed with the color in person, the brass was more of a shiny gold than than what was depicted on the website, but I am happy with the overall design.
Date published: 2021-05-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but... It was pretty and made well, but the color was a very bright yellow gold, not the brushed brass I was looking for so I returned the item.
Date published: 2020-08-11
Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I was searching for! Simple but pretty. I needed a curtain rod with a curved wraparound end instead of a finial to fit in a tight space. It's hard to find brushed gold finish so I was excited when I saw these. I ordered two sizes. The small shipped quickly but I waited quite a while for the larger rod. One small issue is that the hardware is too wide for my window trim so I was unable to place the middle bracket. This is a bit unique to my situation because it's in my kitchen and the wall is tiled so I had no option other than to affix to the trim itself. Due to this, I also needed to use shorter screws. If it is being installed on a wall this wouldn't be a problem. Since I only have a lightweight valance hanging I'm hoping that it will be fine without the middle bracket. The gold finish is a little bright compared to my gold fixtures and doesn't exactly match the curtain rings but after putting it all together it doesn't stand out as much as I thought and I think it works. Overall I'm happy with how it turned out and may order more rods for our bedroom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for bedroom Purchased these to go with blackout drapery and they’re perfect. The curve keeps light from peeking from the side!
Date published: 2019-11-02
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful but note the limitations These rods are stunning and extremely refined. However the description and photos do not make clear that even the shorter lengths require a support in the center of the rod. I had planned to use these rods in several locations where I wanted to pull the drapes to one side due to the window configuration. That can’t be done with these rods. They require two panels that each pull from the center. I will use them where I can because they are so pretty and clean, but am disappointed that I can’t use them everywhere.
Date published: 2019-05-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty, but a bit saggy without a middle support These are very pretty rods. They really improved the look of our curtains and our room. However, once installed, they sag in the middle (across a 38” window), even without any curtains on them. The long rod I purchased (it’s installed at 80”) doesn’t sag because of the middle support bracket. Something to consider.
Date published: 2022-09-19
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Brassy yellow gold The gold is a very bright, yellow gold and not what I wanted in my home. However, the return shipping for 5 units was going to be $40 so I bought a $6 can of spray paint in a more muted gold and painted over them. They better now and much more elegant than the original bright gold color.
Date published: 2022-08-09
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better, materials are nice High quality materials and heavy duty but where the rod meets the hardware on the wall, the surfaces don’t fit together. The end of the curved rod is flat(cut off) and the hardware that you mount on the wall has a rounded surface. It’s not super noticeable but the design could have been better.
Date published: 2022-05-28
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Brass finish looks too yellow I was really hopeful for these. Hoping to find a french return, as there is really not much selection online. I bought the brass finish. I though the finish looked cheap. Too yellow. Almost fakey gold looking. Does not look like brass. Returned. These may be great in black?
Date published: 2021-04-03
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality rod, fasteners are too short This is a quality rod set that is well designed, great color, and just looks great. Unfortunately, the fasteners that are included are seemingly made to work with the drywall anchors. They are not long enough to sufficiently hold the bracket in studs. This is a major problem given the unusual color of the rod. I can't find replacement fasteners anywhere so now I'm stuck with some silver colored screws that make the entire set-up look ridiculous. I would think that most people try to place the curtain rod brackets in studs so I can't be the only person in this predicament.
Date published: 2019-07-29
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sub par quality I twisted to expand and the fake gold finish peeled off like I was sharpening a pencil. Disappointing
Date published: 2022-08-30
Rated 2 out of 5 by from .. These were really hard to install without stripping the screws
Date published: 2022-05-17
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just ok…. Not what I expected. Too flimsy for the curtains.. they work but will eventually replace. I wouldn’t buy them again. Not Ballard quality I expected.
Date published: 2022-03-27
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great I am disappointed in these rods. The brass finish is very inconsistent. One area is way more shiny on both of them. Also, I have a lot of trouble with closing my curtains as the rings do not smoothly glide over the rod.
