Graceful Swagged Styles. Are These For You?

By far one of the most popular window covering styles, swags, have graced the windows of many fine homes throughout the world for many centuries Many of these tasteful fashions are adaptations of window dressings from as early as the victorian era. In fact, many of today’s top interior decorators find inspiration in the history books when designing swagged window fashions for their clients.

Simply speaking, the swags are the crescent- shaped part of the treatment that gracefully sweeps across the window. Swags take on a formal look when paired with jabots, the fabric that adorns the sides of many swag treatments. Jabots are often referred to as cascades or tails, and shortened versions are sometimes placed between multiple swags  to fill in the space where they intersect. Adding special touches such as rich, tassel or bullion-fringe tram to the swag and jabot but edges elevates an ordinary swag had to designer status .

Traditional swagged styles can be toned down into informal more relaxed looks, when casually folded or draped across an interesting pole. Even a scarf swag, a simple length of fabric loops are one of the many interesting swag holders available to soften an angular room with its sweeping style

New Takes On Traditional Swags

Today’s swagss can take on many different looks yet remain elegant and regal. All it takes is a bit of knowledge when it comes to selecting the right style and fabric. The basic swag is a time- honored style featuring single or multiple crescent-shaped pieces flanked by side jabots or side Drapes. It can bring old world charm to a room when made of one of the new silks or faux-silk fabrics. A new twist on the classic swag is the trumpet swa was separate, shared fabric trumpets positioned between his legs that may fold open to reveal a contrast fabric while most led treatments are stapled on to mounting boards polls legs are gracefully draped over striking wood or iron poll providing a lighter look while still having a grand element of designs of the setting

How Many Swags?
  • For windows up to 44 “wide use one swag
  • For windows up to 50 ” wide, you can still use one swag, but to avoid a stretched look, mount jabots on top to hide the extended width of the swag
  • Triple windows may feature three or more swags, but plan on an odd number of swags for the best symmetry
  • Multiple swags that are 36 ” to 46 ” wide provide a grand sweeping effect across a wall of windows
  • Multiples smaller swags 25 ” to 35 ” wide appear repetitious onlarge scale windows yet the look worksif the room decor is simple and uncluttered
