5 Curtain Tiebacks and Holders to have in your home
Within the field of interior window decoration, tiebacks are not only a nice way to showcase a view but they have become a real “must” in a room with drapery. They have become themselves a piece of soft furniture that embellishes even the simplest of curtains.
In the past tiebacks were made with simple fabric but nowadays the choice of material has greatly expanded.
There are many different kinds of tiebacks made from varying materials such as wood, metal, or glass which are considered window hardware. So which ones to select for your drapery?
It is important to match the curtain holders with the room for the perfect style and finish.
Tassels are among the most common form of soft furnishing tiebacks. A tassel tie-back may consist of a single or paired set of tassels which are connected to a rope or braid with either one or two loops.
Lorella Dia is a creative artist who has reinvented the tassel tiebacks by adding decorative elements such as gems, Murano glass and rhinestones.
A version of the tassel tieback is the pendulum tie-back which consists of one or two large hanging decorative pendulums attached to ropes that loop around the curtain. This idea evolved to become a new product: the beaded tassels pendulum tieback.
Hardware forms, often called drapery hooks or curtain hooks, are usually U-shaped pieces of metal, sometimes highly decorative.
One leg of the “U” is fixed to the wall and the curtain is pulled over the other leg to secure it. In the past, they have also been used in ancient French castles and were made with solid brass or bronze. They are rare items to be found in flea markets.
Simple structured tieback
The simple structured tieback consists of a single short U-shaped strip of fabric with a ring placed at each end of the strip and looped around the curtain to hold it open.
This simple structured tieback has also evolved to a more glamorous item, in which interior designers and creative artists decided to use more precious materials instead of just simple fabric.
In its most-basic form, a drape or curtain bind often consists of a ring holding the curtain in the center of the window rather than along its edge as with most tiebacks. It is like a bracelet for the drapery and has a highly decorative value.
