Curtain Speech

Have you ever heard an interior designer talking about draperies and wondered if he or she was speaking in a foreign tongue? Terms like “jabot,” “swag,” “goblet pleat,” “inner lining,” “tieback,” “fullness ratio,” “return,” “stack” and “puddle” are enough to make your head spin. Never fear: If you become familiar with a few of the basic terms, you’ll not only be able to understand your interior designer better, but you’ll be better equipped to articulate what you like and don’t like about window treatments.
