WHAT WE DO
Over the past 35 years we have worked closely with designers, architects, workrooms and installers to produce some very unique products including our own exclusive system of integrating motorization into our decorative facades. We are a certified Somfy distributor, but can adapt our facades to fit any motorization including Lutron, Silent Gliss or Goelst.
Over the years, the quality of many sources of drapery hardware has greatly declined due to the outsourcing of more and more of the US manufacturing base overseas. For this reason we at Window Imagination, are continually revising and adapting our systems. For our Standard Traversing Rodding, we are now using a 1” Heavy Duty C Track which is inserted into the back of rodding, so it is not visible from below. For Standard Ripplefold Traversing Rods, we are now using KS Track Systems which are inserted in the bottom of the rodding and are finished to match, so they are barely noticeable. More and more today, customer’s are choosing very heavy draperies which require us to use a variety of heavy duty tracking systems with ball bearing carriers. These heavy duty track systems, which are inserted below the rodding, are also finished to match the rod.
We have been supplying custom curved wood rodding for many years. These custom curves can be made in diameters from 1 3/8” up to 3” in smooth, fluted or reeded rodding, and can be non-traversing, traversing, ring traversing and motorized. We distribute custom curved metal rodding as well, which is available in various diameters depending on what your need, i.e. wrought iron, brass, nickel, etc.
Often we are asked if we have standard finishes – yes and no. For instance, if a customer wants a basic dark walnut or brown or red mahogany we do use a standard product. You can also specify a particular stain product by name but because any stain is going to appear different depending on the wood it is applied to if you are trying to match woodwork or cabinets. It is best to supply us with an actual sample for us to do a custom match. You would be surprised at what we have received here to match – everything from a desk drawer, dining room chair, kitchen cabinet, gilded mirror, a chandelier and a piano bench, to name a few. If you do not have a sample to send us we have also worked from a picture and will provide you with a strike-off (or strike-offs if required) prior to starting your order so that you are ensured that you get exactly the finish you are looking for.
For paints or faux finishing you can specify any major manufacturers color and we match to their charts, or you can send us a sample of your drapery fabric, wallpaper, etc. for us to match.
Simply put when we say we are a “Custom” manufacturer of drapery hardware we really mean it. If there is anything that you need and think that it can’t be done please call us and we are confident that we will figure out a way to accomplish whatever it might be. Who knows, you just might help us to create the next “big” thing in drapery hardware design and function.
