Curtains are like eyelashes to windows. The right curtain fabric will add a distinctive touch to your living space. Our fabric patterns allow you to achieve the look and feel of your rooms, be it colourful, lightly picturesque, exotic or rich.

 

In a home, curtain is an elegant window treatment for living and bedrooms. The drapes of curtain soften the rigid and boxy outline of windows to evoke a cosier mood, especially in space where rest and relaxation are the priority. That is why hotels always use curtains as part of the overall interior design scheme to give guests a immediately lush and warm feeling when they enter the room. Curtain is perhaps the largest soft furnishing element in a home, and its organic, flowing form will take centre-stage visually. Selecting the right curtain fabric and design is not an easy task, but our design team at Onlewo can help with that.

 

We supply black out curtains too, and yes, in our original patterns as well. We can also help you plan for day and night curtains, which will be necessary for windows facing direct morning or afternoon sun. You can use day curtain to cut down the glare without shutting out daylight.
