J.C. Penney Company, Inc. Informative - I cannot recommend their 'Custom Draperies'
J C Penny used to make very good custom and non-custom drapes. They would come to your house do all the measurements, then come back and install the hardware and drapes.
I had them come out and do this, although it had been 15-18 years since I dealt with the service. It came out to be roughly $1,500 per drapes/Window for a large picture window (size of wall) and a drapes for the sliding glass door.
If you tripped on the sum, yes, $1,500 per 'window' so I paid roughly $3000 to cover the sliding glass door and the picture window. Now I get the custom made pleaded drapes with a sliding mechanical pulley on a 'mechanical' rod. They actually consisted of heavy drapes over shears. You can pull the drapes open to expose the shears or close both to both all light (always like this...expensive hotel usually have them this way).
Anyway, I had JC Penny, Costco and Empire come out for quotes and JC Penny seemed to have a better selection of fabric. I went with J C Penny.
After waiting 2 month for the 'custom' drapes I called and they said that these were being specially made in CHINA!!! And I had to wait another month beyond the two!
So if you get custom drapes figure in about 2-3 months for them to be made in CHINA.
The guy that installed them was very nice and attentive. He spent HOURS with a steam iron getting them right. I was a bit disturbed that the curtain rods were cheap thin metal that expanded to the size you wanted (remember I paid $1,500 per window). As you pull on the pulley to open or close the drapes the rings will get caught on the 'seam' of the expandable curtain rod.
I called about the sticking on the drapes and the 'manager' I talked to said that was normal. I said the old drapes had not done this and he said it was ALL DIFFERENT NOW (with "china and all").
ALSO, I see why the installer spent so much time pressing the drapes. Each one is made of about 3- 4 'panels' that are cheaply sew together and they are kinda puckered. The drapes don't sit at all pleated after about a month. Now, they 'bow' out at every seam of each panel. Now, remember I paid over 3 THOUSAND dollars for TWO Window TREATMENTS!
I'm sure you can guess what the manager said when I complaint about the panels not staying with the pleats.
Just a thought, consider some other vendors. Perhaps this is a new era when you spend three thousand dollar and you get average drapes that pucker. I'm not sold on everything being made outside the country and people just telling me this is the new "normal" for quality.
