The Kips Bay Decorator Show House in Palm Beach opened its doors this month and for the last five decades has become a must-see event to view showstopping interiors from some of the country’s most talented designers, with all proceeds benefiting the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club and Boy & Girls Club of Palm Beach. This year, designer Chris Goddard turned to The Shade Store at Kravet as a one-stop resource to bring his window treatment vision to life by using The Shade Store’s C.O.M. program to fabricate his custom drapery in Kravet and GP & J Baker fabrics layered under Woven Wood Shades from The Shade Store’s in-stock collection.
Designers can experience this level of service and customization at any of the 13 The Shade Store at Kravet locations nationwide, including access to trade-only pricing and The Shade Store’s industry-leading C.O.M. program where the customization options are endless. C.O.M. orders ship for free in 15 days or less (in-stock orders ship in 10 days or less) and customers who choose a Kravet fabric will receive an additional 10% off their order. The Shade Store also offers Kravet customers nationwide professional measurement and installation services, simplifying the custom window treatment process for designers from inspiration to installation.
We had the opportunity to ask Chris a couple of questions about how window treatments can transform an interior.
TSS x Kravet: How do the window treatments relate to your overall vision for the space and bring it to life? Can you explain why you chose the type of window treatment, fabric, pattern, etc.?
Chris Goddard: I’m a huge fan of layered window treatments because they create an opportunity to control light and ambiance and add visual interest. My first layer is a woven shade for texture and filtered light. Next, I chose a modern sheer for a more moody light control. For the main drapery, I went over the top with a colorful explosion of embroidered fabric trimmed in a double band of box pleated ruffles for a strong visual impact.
TSS x KK: What’s the most important thing that the window treatments accomplish in your space?
CG: Space and design dictate the style of window treatments. Every window needs some form of treatment to add either a layer of texture, softness, and interest or to simply frame the view.
