French Return Drapery Hardware is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 130.
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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I bought four of these and will be ordering 2 more

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 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.

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.
Date published: 2022-02-15
Rated 2 out of 5 by from brass option not similar to picture the brass color option in the picture is not accurate
Date published: 2021-06-04
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dimensions not accurate I bought these rods only because of the 2 3/8 projection stated in the description. They do not have a 2 3/8 projection without the bracket and they definitely do not have that projection with the bracket (which does not sit flush against the wall). The projection is closer to 2 3/4 or 3 inches.
Date published: 2020-07-15
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can’t open and close curtains! Because of difference in size between the two tubes that fit together to make up the whole curtain rod, the curtain rings will not slide over the jump unless I physically lift each ring over the bump. I was expecting to actually open and close these curtains each day, but they are only for decorative purposes.
Date published: 2020-07-03
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty but tight return Too narrow a return for typical window trim. Has the right look and finish, but didn’t work sadly.
Date published: 2019-10-28
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wrong color, defective rods I ordered four antique brass curtain rods. I got two antique brass and two bronze. Arg. One of the bronze packs did come in handy, though, as a previous order of four bronze curtain rods had one that was defective, so I swapped it out. That said, I will be returning the defective bronze and the other bronze for what I originally ordered: two antique brass. Further, the center front section of the rod slides into its mates (left and right) too easily sometimes. My curtains are single panel and will be slid to the side of the rod during the day. Sometimes, the center rod slides with the curtain and can come out of the left or right holding rod it fits into. Then it drops apart and has to be re-inserted. Given the defects in construction and incorrectly filled orders—and the hassle of having to return them and wait for new ones—I will probably not be ordering from BD again. Too bad, because the DESIGN is nice. (Also, the rods are made in China...)
Date published: 2019-10-23
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rings don’t slide across rod These rods are a pain if you plan to open and Close your curtain because the rings get caught on the connector bar instead of sliding over and then the rings come off the curtain so everyday I have to get up on a chair and reattach at least 4 rings per rod that came undone.
Date published: 2021-01-19
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing, poor quality for the price These were so disappointingly flimsy for the price. I would suggest getting the $30 version of these from Lowe’s instead they felt much more substantial and looked better. I’m so bummed we got duped into purchasing these the photos look beautiful but definitely lacking in person.
Date published: 2021-01-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stylish but not functional We have owned for a few months and while they are exactly what I wanted, their functionality is awful. The rings constantly get caught on connector bar making it almost impossible to pull them closed without a struggle. It is so bad that the drapery hooks sometimes come out of the rings. If you have no plans to open or close the curtains then I’d recommend them.
Date published: 2020-09-09
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not fit window as specified This rod is good-looking and well made and I would love to use it on my 106" window, but I've been sent 3 sets now and none will reach the length of it. If you lay all the rod pieces end to end without their touching, it spans the 108" mentioned, but cannot support anything without at least 10 inches of overlap. DO NOT BUY THIS ROD IF YOUR WINDOW IS LARGER THAN 98". If they can fix this issue and provide a longer center rod, I will give a 5 star review.
