Elegance Grommet Top Panel
Excellent quality, just what you'd expect from LS
I was so happy with the Grommet Top Panel drapes when they arrived. For the summer months, I had had a valance on the bedroom windows, but wanted to change the look to draperies for the winter months. These drapes hold beautiful folds, slide easily along my wooden rods, and the color is lovely (I ordered ivory). We have wooden blinds on our windows, but I wanted to keep them pulled up for the winter to let more light in, and just wanted to pull the drapes at night. I wondered if the light-colored drapes would provide enough light blocking to keep the room dark enough for us--and it does. I have found that I can always count on Linen Source to send a quality product, and in this case, a SUPER value, since I found them on sale.

Elegant Grommet Curtains
With reservations, I like these curtains. I ordered eight of them in CafeAuLa as it was a compatible color for the bedroom in which they were going. Although I knew they were not room darkening I did expect, with the backing, for them to block somewhat more light than they do ~ however, they do an adequate job in that regard. My surprise was some fabric defects I unfortunately just discovered. When they arrived I quickly looked them over and then hung them simply for the wrinkles to somewhat fall out prior to ironing and also to check that all the lengths were even (they were). Then after ironing two of them I proceeded to destroy all the packaging. Today as I was ironing the rest of them I found one panel that has three small whitish spots along one long edge. It appears as if bleach may have been dropped in those areas. Wish so much I had been more observant prior to disposing of the packing. So my purpose for writing is simply to suggest that the curtains be carefully inspected prior to making them unreturnable. Overall I like them, I am not finding them difficult to iron, and they drape beautifully. Just wish the fabric defect would not have made it past factory inspection!

Pretty but, insulated backing flakes off when washed.
I bought these curtains because I wanted the bronze grommets and aqua color. The color is wonderful, the grommets are wonderful. The curtain material is thin but seems very durable. The problem is the insulated backing. I would not recommend maching washing these. I did them on delicate and put them in the dryer on delicate. It did not get rid of the wrinkles but the backing started to flake off. Now I that they are up, I can see the light spots here and there where the foam is missing. I am keeping them because I love the color, but I will have to find something to hang behind them so the spots are not so obvious. They also let a lot of light in, so putting something behind them will help.
