Contemporary Upholstered Window Valance
Pair boxy lines with traditional fabrics for a current look.
"Upholstery and drapery details are back but in a looser way than before," says deputy editor Hilary Smyth. "Even drapery valances have returned but with stronger silhouettes." Here, ribbon trim echoes the shape of the valance, creating the effect of millwork and bringing an architectural element to the room. Modern lighting, a neutral chair and a bold ikat pillow look fresh.
