Sometimes, a room needs a certain je nais se quois. A slight shift in color balance, a bit of extra visual activity, or a centerpiece to pull a room together. In many cases, patterned & printed curtains are exactly what you’re looking for. While this category contains everything from classic checked curtains to exotic damask drapes all the drapery within this collection offers a more visually active alternative to monochrome designs.

Patterned curtains are always in style, and certain patterns have special appeal for many. Art has always been central to our lives, and many patterns have rich cultural histories. Others are so popular as to be classics of their own that evoke all sorts of feelings in the viewer.

Classic Geometric Patterns. Our geometric-patterned curtains contain some of the oldest patterns in the history of art. A simple check pattern can mean different things to different people, but it always has a simplistic, nostalgic appeal. For that matter, other iconic patterns like plaid and gingham are timeless classics that go out of fashion only to come right back.

Youthful Energy. Polka dot, another classic geometric design can add a sense of fun, energy, and youthfulness to interiors. Such patterns are a great choice for children’s rooms and nurseries, although they’re not limited to these spaces; don’t be afraid to indulge your own inner child.

Cultural Patterns and Special Designs. Beyond the classics such as stripes and checks, patterned curtains can be luxurious, exotic centerpieces that help create a sense of elegance in your rooms. For instance, the traditional Indonesian style of ikat weaving creates splendid patterns with a unique, blurred appearance.

Foster an Intellectual, Worldly Vibe. International styles have become trendy in recent years, but it can be difficult to walk the line between using such art with respect to the original culture. Instead of going for something obviously foreign, you can express your worldiness in a more refined, subtle way through these unique designs. Besides the allure of Ikat fabrics, there are other similarly distinctive styles on hand such as damask and paisley. Paisley patterned fabrics earned wide recognition during the 1970s as they became fixture of anti-war movements, and they remain symbols of peace and brotherhood today.

Contrast is the Heart of Harmony. If a room already has patterns in the form of upholstery or wallpaper, solid coloured curtains offer a counterbalance to foster harmony in your interiors. On the other hand, patterned curtains – from florals to geo-prints –  are a great choice for spaces with plain walls and/or solid soft furnishings. If that sounds like your room, then our stylists highly recommend vibrant, patterned curtains to bring visual depth and dimension to your space.

The Spiffy Spools collection has more than one thousand gorgeous, patterned fabrics in every imaginable combination of color and fabric. Explore the categories, find the style that resonates with you, and uncover designs you might not have ever seen before. Once you’ve done that, trust your heart and pick the perfect patterned drapes for your home.
