Simple but brimming with personality, ripplefold drapery by Spiffy Spools is an exercise in restraint. Offering a beautiful, tailored look, ripplefold drapes glide gently along a track, each fold falling evenly and perfectly into position.
If you're wondering if this style is for you, read on for top reasons this simple style has become designers' hot favourite in recent years.
Uniform fall and pleats. The ultra-even folds of ripplefold curtains are architecturally stunning, offering a clean, sleek look inside the room and from outside. Curtains are sewn with a snap tape on top hem, and each snap connects to a carrier on the ripplefold track. Since the snaps and carriers are at equal distance, the mechanism keeps the ripples at exact equal distance, giving drapes a uniform fall and a flawlessly consistent look every time!
Minimum stack, maximum light. Since ripplefold drapes stack back to the very end of the pole, they take less stackback space when open, exposing more window/glass than conventional pleated drapery. This allows more light to enter in. For clients looks to minimise stackback area, we recommend choosing sheers or other lightweight fabrics and keeping them unlined if possible.
Perfect for prints: While simple sheers and monochrome textured fabrics are most popular in this style, ripplefold drapery is uniquely well suited for contemporary prints. Because of the symmetrical nature of its undulating ripples, the style brings the same consistency to how a print pattern looks when gathered, minimising 'pattern distortion'.
Minimal and modern. Clients looking to dress up a formal room in a modern decor setting often struggle to find the right window treatment. Most pinch pleat treatments are too traditional, while styles such as grommet top or tab top, etc. are too casual. In these cases, ripplefold drapery is often the answer. From light Scandi living rooms to dark, moody dining rooms, this simple style can bring drama to any space without the extravagant pleating.
