New! The Walcot ‘Ripple Heading’

A simple curtain heading with a contemporary twist…

Ripple on wrapped pole

Our ripple heading is designed so the fabric hangs and folds back in a similar fashion to an eyelet curtain, the difference being that the fabric sits beneath the pole.

It is created by a series of gliders, strung together on a narrow cord which sits within the track of the pole.  The distance between the gliders can be bespoke, depending on the width of the ripple you want to create.  A larger spacing between the gliders forms a thicker luxurious fold whereas a smaller distance creates a softer, more minimalist look.

The Ripple heading can be used on any of our tracked 50mm poles including wrapped, lacquered, and stained wood.

Available to purchase now, the ‘Walcot Ripple’ is one of several new products for Summer 2014.

A New Years gift from Walcot House

Wishing all our faithful customers a very Happy New Year!

We hope you have some inspiring forthcoming projects to work on.   We have some innovative additions to the Walcot collection that we are looking forward to sharing with you over the next few months, but in the meantime…

Our new year began with the arrival of our latest batch of ‘knot’ finials.  Whilst unpacking the delivery it soon became apparent that in the aftermath of Christmas our glass man had a run in with the wrong colour…

hazel knots

…but luckily we rather like the finished product (and we hope you do too)!

With the New Year well under way we are feeling particularly generous and giving these exquisite ‘honey knot’ finials away for FREE.

Designed for our 50mm wrapped and tracked range, 30mm brushed bronze, or 30mm stainless steel, why not add a touch of elegant sophistication to your interior?

This unique handmade glass finial is available for a limited time only,  for free,  upon purchase of any of our 30mm or 50mm poles.

 With warming golden tones this finial compliments a variety of our wrapped poles or looks equally stunning against a simple bronze or steel pole.

The Architrave bracket

Architrave bracket

Extra support required for heavier curtains?

Look no further…

…we have the answer that is fuss free and easy to fit.

In response to customer feedback (particularly from your curtain fitters) we developed our architrave bracket to provide extra support as a single unit.  Note the slim back plate that allows for neat fixing to architraves or into narrow spaces.  The hidden wall plate also features a slotted first fixing hole to ensure the brackets can be easily levelled.

Sleek and discreet, the architrave bracket is available for our 19mm, 30mm, and 50mm pole ranges and can be used in conjunction with any of our face fix brackets.

We have a wide selection of bracketry solutions available for various window dressings.

Ranging from recess to top fix brackets, we think we’ve got it covered!

Connector bracket

Our connector bracket has been designed to provide a flush finish for poles supplied as two pieces.  The ‘spigot ends’ of the pole slot neatly into the connector, and has the option of increasing the projection from 9cm to 10cm as required.  We also stock a version suitable for corded poles to accommodate the tracking.

30mm brackets

And don’t forget our double bracket systems available for 19mm, 30mm, and 50mm poles at the front and a 19mm pole at the back.  With simplicity at the forefront of the design they are perfect for voiles or lighter weight curtains.
