Top Treatments
advantage of Carole Fabrics’
collection of Designer
Hardware. Decorative rods
and finials are perfect accents
for these styles.
Top Treatments may be used in a number of ways. They can be the
only treatment at the window, defining it, and creating a minimal
design statement. They can be part of a multi-layered treatment with
shades, sheers and draperies, or they can be anything in between.
Above all, Top Treatments are decorative in nature and will add
distinction to the window. They draw the eye to their shape and color.
Swags make beautiful top
treatments, whether used
alone or with draperies,
panels or shades.

Cornice Boards
Cornice Boards provide architectural
accents. They are upholstered with
decorative fabrics over a padded wood
frame. Each style has a self cording
applied to the contour of the bottom
edge. Available options include a
contrast cording on the edge, a 1/2"
cording at the top and crown molding.
The double curved bottom helps to soften
the straight lines and angles of the window.
As shown, the strong use of color in an
otherwise monochromatic setting increases
the importance of the windows. Shown with
optional cording at the top.

The Statler cornice, with
its straight, simple lines, is

room décor. It will reflect

You are only limited by your
imagination. This casual
free form design creates the
appearance of a swag with
a minimum of structure and
weight at the window. You
can shape it in a variety of
ways. On narrow windows,
use a single “swag”. On
wider windows, you can
wrap the swag around the
pole more than once to
create a nice, free flowing
effect. Once you have the
proportion and scale to your
liking, simply tack the swag
into place on the pole.
