This is great! I recently put up a post because I am stumped on what to use for my windows. Mainly the very wide short windows.

We have used a combination of mecho shades with 90% weave and Fanpleat draperies from Homespun Fabrics.

Homespun has been making these for over 50 years and they look stupendous in MCM homes. The extruded aluminum ceiling or wall hung tracks all but disappear, the drapes stack cleanly and crisply for a great modern look
