The Design Directory of Window Treatments

The Design Directory of Window Treatments features professional illustrations detailing every type of window treatment imaginable, and is an invaluable guide for trade professionals and consumers. Jackie Von Tobel preformed an exhaustive search of current window treatment design and manufacturing trends to identify and name more than 350 individual components that can be mixed and matched to create an infinite number of window treatments. Each of these elements and designs are expertly illustrated in more 1300 color renderings that can be used repeatedly. Black-and-white line drawings of these illustrations are also included on a companion CD-Rom, along with a complete worksheet system for designer use.

I am the owner of a west suburban drapery workroom, exclusively for interior designers. I am a master drapery artisan, WFCP CWP and board member of WCAA Chicagoland. As an expert in this field, I probably own every style book published. This is by far the new Bible for workrooms and designers. It comes with a CD to print black and white line drawings of page size treatments designers can use for their client presentations. I highly recommend this book.

There are tons of little bits of information in this book that I did not know, useful charts and formulas. If you are a window treatment seamstress or designer, this is a very good book.
