Extra Long Curtain Rods

A common household dilemma involves large windows that require an extra long curtain rod.  Believe it or not, you actually have quite a few options.  Most metal and wood poles can be spliced together to create that extra long length.  Duct tape works on regular curtain rods and is hidden by the curtain pocket.  If you need a continuous curtain draw all the way to one side, you can use bypass or passing brackets and rings.  Otherwise, connect your poles with splices and place a bracket at the seam to support it and hide it. We also have a continuous curtain track that comes in a 160 foot roll and curves for those tricky round windows.  Shop our collections that have lengths and splicing options to cover your extra wide window:

Intoducing a really BIG fan for a large room, barn, porch or restaurant

Introducing the 96” Industrial Ceiling Fan. It is designed to significantly improve air circulation in large spaces like vaulted living rooms, pole barns, and industrial buildings. The large blades do the work - it turns at lower speeds than a standard ceiling fan yet moves much more air (CFM) because of its long 96” aluminum blade span. With this fan, you get the air circulation you need to regulate room temperature and keep heating costs down without the wind and breeze created by smaller fans. As a special feature, the HFC-96 can be installed as a 3 blade fan. With that configuration, it turns at 58 RPM and moves 11,899 CFM. The fan is also damp rated for use in covered porches, patios, and sunrooms.  Click here for more info >>  Also available in black.

Ralph Lauren Fabric Books

I love the Ralph Lauren fabric books.  Style and quality are permanent themes in these books.  If you love a traditional style with a lot of flair thrown in, you will probably like them too.  Take a look at some of the new fabric books online at
