Welcome to Maison Adorée, bringing you treasured finds from my petit maison in France... Please scroll down the page for LOTS of detailed pictures as these form part of the item description.Pictures have been taken without any artificial enhancements and in daylight. Hades of colour displayed on this page/site may vary according to your screen settings. I have included some pictures of the curtains sat against a paint chart from FARROW and BALL, AND Laura Ashley's very own paint chart, please use these as GUIDANCE and should colour match be CRITICAL do message me first so I can have half a chance to help. Polite notice : Please ensure you have the funds to pay and that you have checked the measurements BEFORE putting in an offer. ONE pair (2 panels) of curtains (tieback NOT included), bespoke made to measure for its last home in Laura Ashley's linen union "Picardi" in the charcoal colour way; first introduced through them circa 2005 and was not in circulation for long, so to find a set of curtains in this fabric and in this condition is a real marvel! Professionally made to perfection - not by LA but the standard of make up is flawless - pattern match is fluid.
Blanket interlined for insulation and a much, much more sumptuous drape. Pinch pleat (French) header for a more elegant and refined finished hang. Weighted hemline for improved sit when the curtains are in use.
CONDITION: Offered in very good pre-owned condition, with the face fabric in excellent shape considering its age! The below is what I noted for full clarity.A very slight level of fade to the LINING - only just about visible when the curtains laid flat on the ground; and a small level of fade at the leading/meeting edges that was barely visible - see LAST picture BELOW. Surface markings dotted around the TOP LAYER LINING, the interlining layer is clean and dust free. Grubby dust marks to the underside of the hem line (requires head turned upside down to view) - made through its continuous gliding across the floor in its last home. I spied a small friction rub to one of the pleats - 2nd to last pic below - affects nil to the function and is not immediately seen when the curtains are hanging - unless you are super tall ;! There are no droopy fibres to these curtains at all.
Whilst marks can be quantified, smells cannot. This has been sourced from a clean and smoke free home and is stored in the very same condition chez moi, BUT you are kindly reminded that this is a PREOWNED set of FABRIC curtains - so for hygiene sake, it is recommended that you clean BEFORE using. That said, these were homed in a spare bedroom in their last residence so are clean and I would rehang them as they are. Sigh They do not make them like this anymore!! Sublime linen union fabric that holds knotting and graining along the weave to provide more texture and depth.Screen printed billowing floral bouquets - the face fabric is smothered in this and all arranged very toile like, so is indeed a must have for that rambling country cottage somewhere! Officially labelled "CHARCOAL" through LA, varying shades of greys for the pattern with chalk white accents on a pale off-white background. This off white holds a slight palest grey undertone in some lights and shows palest ivory cream in others.
LINING: There are 3 layers to these curtains, the face fabric, a good layer of fleece (middle) interlining and further cotton blend lined on top, all totals superior insulation from the winter chills and aids in a most sumptuous drape for the curtains. HEADER TYPE: DOUBLE PINCH (FRENCH) PLEAT header - an elegant and refined type of header whereby the fabric gathers have been ruffled and set at the time of sewing enabling the fabric to fall uniformly across the curtains.This does mean that the widths along the pinched header will NOT adjust so please double check your track/pole size. These can be used for both track and pole (with curtain rings) systems. Measurements PER CURTAIN LAID FLAT +/- 2 cm. Width (SIDE TO SIDE) 190 cm or 75 inches; FIXED across the header to 95 cm or 37.4 inches. Length (TOP TO BOTTOM) 257 cm or 101.2 inches - there is a workable 2.5 inches in the hem (upturn) so these could be lengthened, although please note that should you do this, there may be a crease shadow from the previous hemline. Polite notice on the products that I sell - please take the time to read this before entering into a sale with me as it will save us both a lot of heartache later on.
The mass proportion of what I sell are "one offs" and will almost always have had been pre-owned and homed/used elsewhere; thus by their very nature will exhibit inconspicuous signs to indicate their previous life. Any significant markings, stains, blemishes, rips etc etc will always be highlighted and more than often will be accompanied by a picture of the offender(s), therefore take the time to EXAMINE all the pictures. In the interests of hygiene please ensure that you have accounted for the need to have such items washed/cleaned/freshened before using. The cleaning costs is NOT my responsibility and again, this is a cost that you should factor when purchasing SECOND HAND or PRE-OWNED products. The pictures in all my listings will have been taken in natural daylight and without the use of any artificial lighting enhancements etc.
