Drapery Street provided drapes, shades, and blinds that were custom designed within budget. Their showroom designers make it easy to select fabrics and trims in a very short timeframe. They then order the cut yardage and oversee the shipping, workroom process, and installation. It is a huge help to have them handling all of these details as I pull together all of the other element of this custom-built home. I am grateful for their professionalism!

We Make You Your Client's Hero

Track workrooms will take and produce any order even if it won’t look good, resulting in unhappy clients and a huge mess for you to clean up. Our concierge workroom is full-service, taking on all the responsibilities and ensuring every nuance and detail is considered —  like returns, light gaps, projections, and a fabric’s drapability.

We help you achieve the quality of design and functionality your client expects, turning YOU into the hero.

Work With Our Concierge Workroom

Peace Of Mind

Do you want to lie in bed at night wondering if you ordered enough rings or if your return calculations are correct? Do you want to research lift systems and place work orders on the weekends?

Of course not! Spend a little time with our concierge workroom instead of many stressful hours learning an entire industry and trying to do it yourself.

Our team will ensure all the right products & parts are ordered, put together purchase orders, communicate with vendors, manage backorders, receive shipments, and coordinate installation — freeing you up to scale your business and focus on bigger-picture tasks.

FAQs

What's the difference between a track workroom and the DS concierge workroom?down arrow

A track workroom is highly standardized, which allows it to be efficient and offer lower pricing. However, that can come with a cost. You must use their work orders and will have limited selections (only two choices for returns, for example, and neither might be right for your client’s custom home). A track workroom only handles fabrication — the project management is left entirely to you. They will take and produce your order without any guidance or feedback that it may not look right in the client’s home or function how you expect it to.

Our concierge workroom is full-service and staffed with design, fabrication, and installation specialists. We provide fully custom solutions that discerning homeowners expect in their custom homes. Our entire team reviews every project to ensure a flawless finish. We manage projects from concept to completion, taking on all the responsibility to ensure the final result looks and functions how you intend.

We know what will and will not work, and we will not produce something that will not translate into your vision. Instead, we will provide guidance to achieve your vision based on our years of expertise. For example, if you order a fabric that we know does not drape well, we will source similar fabrics that we know do.

Our goal is to produce window treatments that look exactly how you envision and function exactly how the client expects — saving you precious time and avoiding costly mistakes along the way.

What parts of the project will Drapery Street manage? down arrow

We manage the entire project, from concept to completion. Depending on your preferences, we can work with you and your team or directly with your client.

You provide the vision, and we will provide the guidance and expertise to execute it flawlessly. We handle the math and engineering, offer product knowledge, ensure you select the right products to accomplish your goals, and safeguard that every detail is covered, from returns to projections.

During the estimating stage, we collect all necessary specifications to obtain an accurate estimate. Our team schedules and completes all measurements.

During the expediting stage, we put together the quote and all purchase orders (making sure all products, fabrics, trims, hardware, and parts are ordered), communicate with vendors, manage backorders and make re-selections with the client if necessary.  We receive the shipments and open every box for inspection. We make sure all the correct components arrive and are in good order (i.e., check the hardware and hinges, the diameter of the drapery rods, the correct number of rings and valances have been included, inspect the fabric and colorways).

During the installation stage, we communicate with the client to set a date and time for installation. We provide white-glove installation. Our installers wear clean house shoes and remove all boxes & debris upon leaving. They steam all the drapes and ensure all the treatments are in good working order before leaving. If motorized options have been selected, our installers can provide operating instructions to the homeowner if desired.

Where is your workroom located? down arrow

Our drapes and soft treatments are handmade right here in the Midwest, and most are made in the Drapery Street workroom in Indianapolis. This allows us better control of lead times and special specifications. Most importantly, it allows us to implement our unique 9-Point Inspection—a process that allows for consistent and accurate production.

Our 9-Point Inspection includes:

1. Double-checking fabric yardage and cut lengths upon receiving the work order
2. Inspection of fabric on a light box to ensure there are no snags or imperfections in the fabric
3. Pulled threads to ensure straight cuts with the grain of the fabric and not pattern placement
4. Proper slide/pleat/snap count to coordinate with custom hardware
5. Precision pattern-matching — every joined panel is ensured to have patterns matched up beautifully
6. Ability to use cotton thread to match fabric color (not available on velvets or patterned fabrics)
7. Holding fabric taut when sewing to avoid rippling or errors
8. Hang drapes for at least 24 hours to ensure accurate drape length
9. The finished product is labeled with the client’s name, room location, and number of pleats to set installation up for success

Can you help me source fabrics? down arrow

Yes. We can source fabrics and will provide education on which fabrics are best for what you’re trying to accomplish.
