My client and I here in RI are researching a "wow" top treatment for her coastal home and came upon your work.

Your Under Water Wave cornice has inspired a similar design but how is it fabricated? Do you fabricate this yourself or are you having fabricator's create your idea with templates layers of fabric. I am aware that you do not need to share your creativity but some insight into fabrication would be greatly appreciated. Susanne, Exciting Windows! By SSP Designs, Susanne St. Pierre 401-451-7708

Hi Susanne, Thank you for your interest. We are fabricators, as well as a design firm. The wave treatment is created with a templete that we come up with. It is done in three to five layers, depending on how much depth you want to show.
What I usally do is design my pattern to size. Because of the curves, it takes 2 , sometimes three of us to pull back and staple Since they are each individualy fabricated, there are several styles we create. The cost is 55 to 75 a ft depending on how many layers.We ship out of state or I can create a pattern and instructions for custom sizes. Good luck and let me know how you do. Marya

Marya, thanks for your immediate response. My client must have a design with a shaped bottom but I can see why you need structure to pull layers back to secure. Is each layer outlined with roping that is glued on? I would also presume that you need fabric choices that are stable. I have selected 2 of the 3 that we hope to use. Design can be a challenge because I am dealing with 2 windows at 110" each and a 40". What are your thoughts?

Yes, it is a challenge.....I am out from the studio today. When I get back I will post more wave treatments. We are actually doing 4 windows right now, widths ranging from 210" to 79" inches. They are all wave treatments. The trick is to sketch out the treatments as if it is one continuous treatment.
Even if there is a break/space between windows. and layers are glued and stapled, sometimes we alternate. Fabric should be strong poly, or cotton blend. Something like Duck. I will get you more photo's by Monday.

Marya~I dropped the ball on this for a while but my client is still interested in seeing more photos of how you handle the design on her wider windows, 110"-112". Unfortunately my client has her heart set on fabrics that are faux silk. I will need to convince her that if she wants this design, we will need to select more stable fabrics. Please post the treatments that are for wider windows, as you spoke about a few weeks ago. Thanks.
