Window Treatments Used as Dividers in Restaurants & Other Boutique Commercial Spaces
Window treatments are not only for windows!
Often, they are used to divide a large commercial space (restaurant, reception hall, etc) into smaller sections. Seemingly simple projects, they actually are all but...
Here's one example from our recent work.
Our task: to create a divider drapery panel, which this restaurant can use to section off a portion of their dining room floor.
Execution: double sided, self-lined drapery panel; ripplefold construction; heavy-duty architrac track;
What can go wrong:
-60lbs!!!! of fabric is very difficult to handle, sew, and install
-this fabric was growing, stretching, expanding, and generally not laying easily
-ripplefold tape and snaps mean that there is absolutely no room for adjustment
Result: beautiful divider drapery panel and a happy client.
BTW, the restaurant was designed by the brilliant team at Gacek Design Group -
