I decided to order ten of these panels because they were so inexpensive and because the print would add a nice touch to all the plants, white wicker, etc. I LOVE THE WAY THIS LOOKS IN A SUNROOM. The quality is what you would expect for the price, the print is great but the seams pucker slightly. But when I put the ten panels together, that all just worked together. My windows are now bright with leaves cascading down and the whole room is just fantastic because of these curtains." —Janice Briggs

    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    The photos above are from my BFF's apartment. She and I share a gaudy goth aesthetic and when we were hunting for curtains for her home these were an obvious choice. She originally got the black for her bedroom and loved them so much she ended up grabbing the gold for the living room (which was a slightly less spooky color for a room she shares with her perky roommate). Both purchases have shown us that the shop's quality is top-notch and consistent. I highly recommend these! And FYI, Zen Creatives is another great shop in LA!

    Vintage stamp floral pattern in blue on khaki background

    Promising review: "First off, these are an amazing value. The price makes them especially attractive in that we require three pairs for our dining area. Second is the quality feel to these. They feel like linen and have a nice texture. The color is true to the ad, and they hang so nicely. A few wrinkles may or may not come out as they hang, but a steamer will take care of that easily. The grommets match our curtain rods, and they were easy to hang. Another plus is that they are machine washable. They do filter the light and that is what we were looking for. In summary, this is a very nice curtain at a great price and well worth it." —Doc

    Promising review: "These curtains are beautiful. They're durable, have a nice texture and pattern, and the color is gorgeous. I've ordered blackout curtains before and these are the best.
