Design on an Intimate Scale

By Rowley Company

Rowley Company, Contour Striated Ball drapery finial from the AriA™ Artisan collectionHow many times have we heard the phrase “design is in the details”? Though it may be a bit too familiar, the expression rings true in many industries as design is a globally used term used to convey style, purpose and/or creation of any one thing, process or space. No doubt, this phrase should strongly resonate with interior designers or any interior design professional reading this post.

Details, as small or grand as they may appear, can take a design from “drab-to-fab”, from “almost there” to “wow”, and beyond. The details should be right, enhancing the overall look-and-feel of the room. Details can also transform a space across multiple style categories by switching up color, hardware, fabrics, accessories, lighting, furniture and on and on it goes. The options are virtually limitless.

 As selected to be part of the High Point Market Spring 2017 TrendWatch: Verdure, Rowley’s Contour Striated Ball drapery finial from the AriA™ Artisan collection, is designed on an intimate scale, with textures evoking classic stripes and hand-painted details creating a simple, yet updated finial design to fit any space. Though drapery hardware sometimes plays second string to beautiful fabric drapery panels, think of it as the perfect necklace or accessory to a designer outfit or ensemble. Without the just-right statement necklace, is your look really complete?

With an up-market vibe and classic silhouette, the Contour Striated Ball finial in Antique Brass finish is part of the AriA™ Artisan collection of drapery hardware featuring unique glass, wood, stone and metal finial combinations designed to evoke the essence of one-of-a-kind details that will elevate your window treatments to the level of high design.  Rowley Company, Contour Striated Ball drapery finial from the AriA™ Artisan collection
