Perfect panels are tops!

Update your windows with drapery panels and select a header or top detail that makes a great design statement. Use fabric panels as a decorative addition to other coverings - like shades and blinds - or as the sole window treatment in your room.  Gain elegance, glamour and modern sophistication by using one of these three gorgeous header styles:
Parisian pleat
1) Parisian or pencil pleat - A decorative header that can look casual with a cotton print fabric or modern - as shown - in a dark linen textured panel over a roll-up shade. Less formal look than many other pleat styles, but clean and tailored.

2) Goblet pleat - This elegant and dramatic look is fabulous in traditional interiors as well as with transitionally styled decor. Add glamour with dupioni silk fabric and be sure to line each panel to give it heft.
Grommet top

3) Grommet top - An updated top that is right with every style from country to contemporary. The fabric selection drives the fit into your decor but the top is a new classic....updated and sophisticated.

Whether you buy panels pre-made, sew them yourself (check for how-to's at E HOW) or have them custom sewn by a workroom, the impact to your room with these wonderful header details will be dynamic!
