As a window treatment professional for over 25 years, I've owned many versions of the Encyclopedia of Window Coverings. (I still wish I had my original one, for the sake of nostalgia.) This updated, comprehensive version includes bed covering ideas--none of which can be found in a zippered plastic bag! The Encyclopedia of Window & Bed Coverings is a the "go-to" guide not only for professionals, but for the homeowner looking for inspiration and/or a better way to communicate styles with a professional. Thanks for your dedication to the world of custom treatments.

I was looking for a great book on drapery and my search led me to this book. When I received it I truly could not put it down. The renderings are exactly what I was looking for.... up to this day I still am excited by it. The other books in my collection cannot compare to this one. It is simply wonderful! I highly recommend it.

This is very helpful to introduce people to things they can do and a good work tool for guiding people in what to put on their windows and beds

This book is nice its a must have to show to clients

Very nice -- just what I needed.

Great book for professional user
