I love to use these beaded string curtains on my windows in lieu of curtains. They are less imposing and have a different appearance, depending on whether it is day or night, since the bright light against the window gives them a translucent quality, and at night, they respond to the lamp lights. These complement my oriental hand-woven Persian rug, which has a dominant red theme. The quality of this article is excellent.
I just wish they'd not put a red hanging rod on them, but a neutral color one. Those same color bars look overbearing, in stark contrast to the delicate beads. I'm sure it would be also cheaper to manufacture just neutral rods to use on all of the different color beads. I'd given 5 stars in that case. I'll have to hang a valence over that bar, to conceal it. Well, I'll make it work!
ProsI love the color combination of the beads and their good quality.
ConsI dislike that big RED hanging rod on which they are mounted. It would look better if the rods were of a neutral tone. Not everybody has red walls that would make these rods blend in. Neutral would not stick out so strongly. From a decorator's point of view, the beads should be noticed, not the hanging bar.
