Curtains and Drapes by Style

Shop for curtains and drapes by style in our collection of window-enhancing drapery panels. You’ll love the fresh new drapery looks made with quality materials and construction. Add a warm but stately presence to rooms when you hang any of our panels on either side of your windows. Use casual yet crisp pairs of Belgian linen drapes in rooms where you want a simple, subdued look that adapts to a variety of room themes and furnishings. Our Belgian linen drapery panels at Pottery Barn are made from the finest flax to create a superior fall and a fine woven texture unmatched by other natural fabrics. Choose from sheer, unlined and blackout styles of Belgian linen drapery, or select patterned and silk-blend linen drapery from our entire linen collection.


When choosing curtains and drapes by style, look for sheer panels like our organic, voile and linen sheers that stand alone or work with other drapery panels for multilayered window treatments. Sheers are a great compromise when you love natural sunlight but your windows are too drab. They also work with Roman shades and custom shades to give you privacy when you need it and views of the garden or street when you want to watch the world go by. Let sheers pool slightly on the floor for a flowing look or hang the bottoms at the sill level to blow with the breezes.


Give a more finished look to an office, study or formal living area with silk drapes in a wide array of colors. Like many of our best drapery panels, some styles of silk panels convert from pole pocket to ring-top styles to suit your hardware tastes and room decor. Silk drapes are constructed with pre-dyed yarns for rich, luxurious color that lasts for many years. Whether you need a more tailored look for a sitting area, dining room or bedroom, silk drapery panels add a regal touch while remaining soft and inviting


If you love the cool look of cotton, we’ve got a collection that’s right for you. Choose from plain, dyed and striped cotton panels that look graceful and relaxed in both contemporary and rustic-themed rooms. The nubbier texture and gentle colors in some cotton drapes are ideal for beach-oriented and botanical themes. Printed and patterned cotton drapes give a splash of modern color to plain rooms while grommet-style drapes in cotton and cotton blends combine timeless comfort with bold style. Some cotton curtains are lined with 100 percent cotton to provide more light filtering and privacy.


You’ll find most of our curtain styles are available in blackout versions. Blackout curtains are helpful when you live next to busy roads or neighbors with bright backyard illumination. Blackout curtains are also a life saver for people who work the night shift or those who care for babies and small children. No matter how bright the sun is outside the window, a blackout curtain lets kids and grownups sleep like it’s the middle of the night. Light-blocking curtains are a practical choice for windows in rooms where valuables are kept. The drapes protect books, art work and fabrics that should have limited exposure to sunlight.


After choosing your favorite drapery panels to update your windows, it’s time to select the right window hardware to coordinate with your drapery and other room furnishings. We offer classic, vintage and contemporary styles of curtain drapery rods in metal finishes that mix and match with a wide array of designer-style finials. Choose cast iron drapery rods, finials and rings for a window befitting an ancient castle, or choose brass, polished nickel or antique pewter hardware to add some shine to our sheers and silk drapes. Our patterned drapes go well when hung on rubbed bronze and antique bronze drapery rods that let the colors in the panels take the spotlight.
