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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I want this rod in every room! Best curtain rod I've ever purchased. I don't understand why all curtain rods don't allow the rings to slide all the way to the wall to block out light.

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 Helpful customer service!!! Great looking and easy to install. I had originally wanted the next size up but it was not in stock. I called customer service and they helped me switch to the smaller size rod which still telescoped out to the length I wanted but it was in stock and ready to ship. They were very helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from French return curtain rod Understated elegance with sheer linen curtain! Used with rod pocket instead of ring and love the look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Drapery Hardware! This is my second purchase of the French Return Drapery rods. They are very attractive, heavy and have a secure method of application to the wall. In my guest room, I had (3) windows where I used Drapery rings with the draperies and now I just put them up in our newly renovated Master Bedroom and fed the pleated drapery through the rod. Both applications are beautiful. One advantage with these rods is that the "return" feature enables the drape to hug the wall...keeps the room darkened in the mornings or if I need to darken the room for babies nap time. Very satisfied.:-)

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 Perfect for limited wall space These are great. Somewhat industrial looking as my husband said but worked great for our bedroom where we have no wall space on either sides of windows.
Date published: 2020-06-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install Very simple installation and perfect for a non-handy person. I will purchase these again.
