Custom window cornices are wood based, beautifully upholstered top treatments that mount over a window. Though initially designed for concealing functional, non-decorative drapery hardware, they have evolved! When exquisitely covered with designer fabrics and compatible accents, cornices pull together the look of the room into one coordinated design statement.
Cornices can lend uniformity to uneven windows, giving them paralleled appearance while appearing to enlarge the windows at the same time. Cornices may be sculpted to enhance the architectural style of the shaped window or, if you prefer, conceal it from the inside.
Cornice shapes and fabrics are carefully selected to enhance the desired design effect of your window treatments. Whether your style is casual or formal, a custom cornice will add a wonderful finished touch that portrays your style and taste.
Like its soft fabric cousin, the valance, cornices can be adorned with fabulous accent trims, including tassels, beading, and decorative cording, or faced with contrast banding or striking decorator nail heads that follow the cornice’s contours.
