Unlike a custom drapery, curtains and window treatments purchased ready-made are constructed from fabric panels of standard sizes and are meant to sell in large numbers at department and variety stores. While this option is cost effective, it does little to reflect the good taste of the homeowner and rarely contributes to superior design in a room.
Ready-made is not what Charlotte’s Custom Draperies is about. We take great pride in providing custom drapery services to the greater St. Louis area, including Kirkwood, Webster Groves, Town and Country, Ladue, and many other great communities with custom-designed and carefully fabricated draperies, top treatments, bedding, and other quality items. Contact us today to learn more about our custom draperies!
Paulette De Clue: Owner and Custom Drapery Designer
Paulette De Clue, our owner and designer, holds a degree in Textile and Apparel Management from the University of Missouri-Columbia, with a specialty in fashion design. She has continued her study in interior design and has worked in this special industry since 1989. Clients of Charlotte’s Custom Draperies receive Paulette’s personal attention because she is involved in all consultations and in the fabrication process. In addition, she is present for every installation of custom drapery and all other items.
Charlotte’s Custom Draperies has been serving the St. Louis area since 1972 and many of our clients have worked exclusively with Paulette since she took over ownership of the company in 2002. Some of our custom drapery clients are even working with us on their second or third home.
