    it was a pillow that robshaw sold on his site at the time we designed this project, which was now many years ago.

    robshaw made that pillow-we didn't buy the fabric and have it custom made. it must have been discontinued. sorry!

    this one was from ballard designs and was very reasonably priced. the fabric, however, is from lee jofa and was a splurge. that's what makes the piece special, though-in our opinion.

    Hello ilsid2000,
    These drapes appear to be an off-white color with an orange border and not two drapes because they all are showing the same amount of orange, it would be hard to do this if there were two separate drapes. You can purchase custom drapes like this and fabric treatments from Windo VanGo, we serve the Baltimore, MD area.

    It's custom - the link shows a tag that identifies the fabric.

      What Houzz contributors are saying:

      Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Curtain SpeechMarch 11, 2014

      A cornice is a valance’s kissin’ cousin. The only real difference is that a cornice is hard rather than soft. It usually consists of fabric upholstered onto a padded (sometimes shaped) board. It makes very economical use of the textile, in that it is not gathered or pleated, but is tightly stretched. If you have fallen in love with a very expensive fabric, a cornice can make it more affordable. Also, because the fabric is stretched, the entire pattern is revealed.

      Tomato gets a softer spin in this space, like the creamiest summer soup you can imagine. The curtain edging and ikat sofa fabric add a shot of vitality without making too much noise.

      Restricting your patterned upholstery to a smaller piece or anchoring it to a corner or a wall will make the look easier for the eye to digest. Here, Betsy Burnham married a gorgeous orange and cream ikat to a window-seat sofa, repeating the colors in the drapery to make the effect less jarring.

      This daybed is dressed with a custom cover sewn from Lee Jofa's Ikat De Lin 24 fabric. The coral hue is repeated in the trim on the curtains.

      This mixes color and pattern. But it also mixes feeling or, as I like to say, vibe. The ikat has an ethnic, boho thing going for it, while the pillows are more traditional. Mixing it up keeps the area from looking too themed.

      Here's a space by the master of pattern mixing and layers, Betsy Burnham. Notice how all three sizes of scale are present on the day bed ensemble.

      2-inch grosgrain ribbon provides an cost effective accent for top treatments and drapery panels. Apply trim using a glue gun, fabric glue, or fusible web.

      Lily Gahagan added this to Idea of the Week: Mix Patterns Like a ProFebruary 11, 2011

      Notice in this photo how the coral of the ikat is picked up in the trim of the window treatments, and the neutral linen tone makes an appearance in many of the pillows. The overall effect is unified but in no way match-y. "A two-color, medium-scale ikat in grassy green and white will look fabulous with a multicolored paisley that has a bit of the same green in it," Betsy says. "Add to this a small-scale leopard print with a white ground (and perhaps one of the colors from the paisley), and you’ve got a cool room. What’s important is to make it look just random enough; in other words, not too perfect."

      Fans consider Betsy's work very complex and meticulously well thought out. Mixing patterns and using neutrals in fresh, unexpected ways isn't a skill picked up through reading a textbook. Betsy, who originally worked in menswear for The Gap, has an in-depth understanding of textiles and tailoring which often shows in her upholstery and seamstress work.
