A Drapery Tieback Revival



Tassel tiebacks were once a popular drapery adornment. Now most of my clients shudder at the thought of those cheap tassel tiebacks that used to collect dust in outdated living rooms.  


When designing drapery treatments, tassels are not usually necessary if you create a quality drape that functions well and hangs beautifully without the need of added adornment.






 Yet sometimes a tieback is needed to hold back a very wide drape in a tight area. Other times the scale and design of the home or window may call for a little more grandeur. 



 Gladly the tieback seems to be coming back in new refreshing designs that can suit transitional, traditional and contemporary decor styles. As you can see, the drapery tieback isn't what it used to be!
