As the owner of a Workroom designing and creating window- and other home decorating treatments, I was delighted to see how inspiring this book is! The illustrations are luscious and beautifully drawn with accompanying line drawings for even further clarity (a CD of the same accompanies the book) and each design is completed with a description and reference, in many cases, to the originating commercial pattern. For those new to decorating or to the industry, a glossary further enlightens and a section devoted to the Workroom with sample documentation is a valuable resource. I recently took this book with me to a get-together with colleagues who oohed and aahed and who couldn't wait to get their own copies! This book certainly must top the pile of decorating books which are out there and will be a very worth-while investment.
This book was well written. It includes information that will help the designer and also the drapery pro. Great information for the beginning designer/fabricator, but not too elementary for the seasoned professional.A lot of thought was put in the content and also the layout of the book. It would be a great book for Window Treatments 101, if there's such a class. I am a professional drapery designer and fabricator and believe that it is a great reference book and will always remain in my professional library.What a treat!! Thank you Jackie for doing such a great job. You can't go wrong with this book.
The Design Directory of Window Treatments is a must have! It is chock full of beautifully drawn window treatment sketches. The attention to detail is phenomenal. This should be used as a textbook in design school b/c of the sketches and all the written information about window treatments.
Every person that reviewed this book said it is a must have book. Well, I thought I was ordering the perfect book. If you just want pictures it is perfect, but for someone that needs instructions on how to sew window treatments this is not the book. There are no directions at all. Now I have a lovely book of pictures and still don't know how to make any of the window treaments in the book. What a disappointment.
Book is a compilation of window treatment drawings. This book might be of great value to interior decorators as a source of reference material for their clients to decide their window treatment. For the sewer, who is looking for instuction or patterns for making these curtain designs--this is not the book. It is a design directory only; there are many drawings and some reference to contacting a pattern company but there are no directions or patterns included in this book.
Loved this book, so many ideas, and well photographed. Because I have made many drapes, I can copy, might be difficult for a new sewer, no real directions, but again, I found a lot of inspirational ideas.
This book is a MUST HAVE for any one associated with window treatments in any way. I own a to-the-trade only workroom and have a VAST collection of design books and this book is unequaled by any other. I was immediately captivated by the beautiful drawings and was refreshingly inspired and challenged. Thank you Ms. Von Tobel, your book is supurb!
I have several other books on drapes and thought do I need another... wellI did.Really great book also has disc so can send items to clients.My associate teaches a Design class and is now going to make her students buy this book rather than the one she used to recommend.This is a big and heavy book so being able to print pages you need really helps rather than having to take this to client meetings..
