French Haven

Photography by David Phelps Photography.

Long time clients and seasonal residents of Newport California wanted their new home to reflect their love and admiration for all things French. Fine antiques and furnishings play well in the foreground of their extensive rotating art collection.

Can you tell us how are these draperies are hung and how they operate? - I love the simple elegance of these draperies, just beautiful, and I would be ever so grateful to know how they opperate and know how they are headed and mounted (on the ceiling or the wall)? Thank you so much.

Hello. Thanks for the comment. Since this was a new construction house, we designed the motorized curtain track to be installed into the ceiling flush with the drywall ceiling. They are two seperate curtains. One on the right and one on the left. When they close, they both close to the corner of the window, seen in the middle of the photo. There is a motor hidden behind the draperies. One on the top right side and one on the top left size. They are controlled with a remote control. Hope this helps.

Hi. The sheer fabric is from Laura Lienhard Textiles. The model and color is "Cirrus-Fog". We had the curtains custom made by our curtain fabricators.

Hi. We purchased the "Flap" sofa from However, I'm not sure if you can still get it from them or not. You may need to Google "Flap Sofa" to find a showroom that carries it still.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to New Classics: Edra's Flap Sofa
The sofa's curved lines work especially well with this Paul Smith Swirl Rug.
The Edra sofa is matched by curvaceous Harper chairs and a bold swirly matching pattern here. The twig art lends texture. Because people are spending so much time online, in a nontactile environment, they are craving texture in their surroundings, Edelkoort says.
