If ever there were a classic window covering that conveyed both genteel sophistication and grand luxury, drapery would be it. For centuries, large swathes of fabric have been used to adorn the bedrooms and dining rooms of nobility and provincials alike. The BBG collection harnesses all the grandeur and all the humility that each style possesses to bring you a collection full of finesse.
Scouring the globe for the finest cloth is the preserve of the BBG design team. Taking in small, artisanal producers and talented weavers from all corners of the earth, each fabric is carefully chosen to fit the exacting standards of the brand.
Drape is all-important; a curtain must hang proudly without being stiff, fluidly without losing its profile. Once chosen, the cloths are individually sewn to the customer’s specifications. BBG holds no truck with bonding agents and glue. Thread not only holds truer, it gives each piece its bespoke quality.
While the tactile nature of the curtain is traditionally of paramount importance, in the modern home there is plenty of scope for employing pattern and design to tie schemes together in the most elegant fashion.
The BBG design team aren’t just experts in handpicking the finest linens, the most elegant silks and plushest chenille, they also cast their eye over the most prestigious patterns and bring them into the fold. From blooming florals to delicate jacquards the collection consists of handpicked designs with an aura of prestige that few others can match.
As with all BBG collections, customisation is key. For the discerning homeowner, the choice of a classic pinch pleat, a sleek pencil pleat or a contemporary eyelet heading option provides the opportunity to tailor the look of the curtain to its surroundings.
The two more traditional headings of pinch pleat and pencil pleat are supplied as double width fabrics, offering a fullness that is the height of luxury and a throwback to classic drapery. The eyelet heading, a more modern style, is complemented by a width and a half of fabric for a light and graceful finish.
