Appearing in France in the middle of the 17th century, the bandeau as decoration for curtains and curtains remains relevant today. This is an unusual decorative element that can become an accent in the interior. Our tips site will tell you what a gang is, what it happens, how it can be used in room decor.
Bando is a type of lambrequin. In an article about ways to decorate curtains, the portal talked about traditional lambrequins. In contrast, bandeau is a rigid, straight strip of fabric, without folds or ruffles, usually with a tape that complements the overall design of the window. Experts often and rightly call the bando a hard lambrequin.
Most often, the gang is located horizontally, directly on the curtain rod, hiding it. But there are also vertical bandos, which run in a straight strip on the side of the lighter curtain with pleats. You can compare the bandeau with a frame, which is designed to emphasize the beauty and shape of the main curtain..
Both vertical and horizontal curtain bands are:
- Classic. Made of dense, tough but flexible fabric based on non-woven or dublenine. Actually, this is a piece of canvas with tape and Velcro for attaching to the cornice.
- Openwork. They look like lace but are actually layered and stiff. These bandos are more expensive, but also look more interesting..
Several types of fabrics can be combined in one bandeau for a window, you can choose a pattern and color for any style of interior, although, we admit, most of all this decor option is suitable for classics, cute Provence, rural areas, as well as bohemian boho. However, you can easily imagine the laconic look of a bandeau made of fabric of a neutral shade in the Scandinavian interior style popular today..
Modern bandeau, rigid lambrequins, can be very different – symmetrical or not, from satin, chintz, velvet, tulle on a strong basis and other fabrics. Braid, fringe, pendants, rhinestones, bugles and beads can serve as decoration. It all depends on the wishes of the owner and the overall style of the room. Most often, the gang is sewn to order, complete with the selected main curtains, so that they exactly match the dimensions of the window opening and are ideally combined with each other. But you can also find ready-made options that are offered by many salons for sewing curtains..
