Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Beautiful . . . drapery for my log cabin! Just love my red plaid drapery panels. Against the full-log walls the color, texture and simplicity really frame and enhance the wood views outside. (In addition to preserving heat after dark)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great solution for tricky window Our townhouse has a large window that is too closely flanked by a door and a wall corner to allow for a traditional curtain rod. It was easy to install and looks chic. It would be nice to have a few more finish options and some different designs for the mounting plate.

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 High-quality drapery hardware These brass French return drapery rods are very well made. Took me almost 2 hours to install two in my dining room, but my walls are solid wood (house built in 1920) and using a level I nearly drove myself mad! Somebody who is a little more “handy” probably could have done the job in much les time! My husband was shocked that I installed them myself and still thinks I hired a handyman! The directions were very clearly written.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Curtain rods: love... I love Ballard Designs for decor and hardware! I purchased 4 curtain rods from them...and, couldn't be more pleased! The rods being cast iron, along with the curtain rings, are stunning against the white paint, furniture and bed linens of my bedrooms. Thank you Ballard.

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 Beautiful! I am Very pleased with this hardware! We are updating a 1970s colonial that has a number of original iron and crystal light fixtures.
