This is an Upholstered headboard with five inches shirred border around the three sides.
This headboard can be attached to the bed frame or can be placed behind the bed without screws.
It is possible to make a quilted bed spread from the same fabric and even window treatments such as Drapes, upholstered cornices, swags, roman shades etc.

This window treatment was a bit challenging.
The window was twenty two feet high and I was not allowed to bring a hydraulic scufold, because the floor would not support
the weight of the scaffold...
I started the installation from the top center to the side, and than continue the stationary panels.
On the windows I had installed Duette shades.
This job was done in a catering hall in New York.
The walls were covered with one inch thick of sound absorbent panels.
Over the panels I had installed a half inch flame retardant Dacron padding.
The third step was to apply the fabric over the padding.
I finished the perimeter with double welt that was made from the same fabric.
Balloon shades do add a special worm look to the window...
In this case we used a beautiful rich looking fabric that was warm looking and soft at the same time.
I gave it a five inch shirring on the top and stuffed the bottom with soft paper.
I installed it in a way that it will be easy to remove for cleaning.
