The introduction of Galaxy lace curtains marks the first time a lace curtain panel has been created to accompany the revival of the Mid-Century Modern style of the 1950s and 1960s. Cooper lace saw a clear need for a lace curtain that provides a clean, simple pattern for those dwelling only slightly in the past. Cooper Lace’s latest curtain pattern, Galaxy, is unique and contemporary, and offers a perfect combination of privacy and light. Designed by Steve Bauer of Bradbury & Bradbury Art Wallpapers, Galaxy lace curtains compliment Bradbury’s many exquisite Mid-Century Modern Wallpapers. |
This 100% cotton lace curtain will coordinate perfectly in Mid-Century Modern interiors as well as contemporary homes with its timeless elegance.
There is no exact formula for determining which is the correct measurement of length and width when buying lace curtains. Usually, the decision is based on one of two eras of decor: 19th or 20th century.
In the 19th century, Federal, Greek Revival, Early and mid Victorian and some Colonial Revival, window treatments were “fuller“ with more gathering using a ratio of 1˝ to 2 times the window width as the curtain panel width. Our Bellflower, Brownstone, Cherwell, Grecian, Eastlake, Oak & Acorn, Old Colony and Regency panels work best in these instances. Also, it was custom to have the lace panels hang below the window sill, sometimes even pooling onto the floor although baseboard height was most common.
20th century Arts & Crafts, Art Deco, Bungalow, Craftsman, mid-Century Modern and Mission window treatments were much ‘flatter‘ with much less gathering using a ratio of 1 to no more than 1 to 1˝ times the window width as the curtain panel width. Our Art Deco, Craftsman, Dedham, Galaxy, Ginkgo Leaf, Glen‘s Edge, Hunter Rose, Pine Cone and Prairie Sumac panels work best in these instances. The preferred length for this era is just touching the window sill.
As a rule, American home windows are between 25” and 30” across. Our 47” panels work fine for the fuller gathered look; our 33” panels are best for the flatter less gathered look.
