|Pate-Meadows Designs was founded over 10 years ago as a high-end drapery workroom specializing in creative, one-of-a-kind window treatments. Pate-Meadows was incorporated in 1995; however the principals, Leigh Pate and Caterina Meadows, have over 40 years of combined experience in the design and construction of drapery and window treatments for the home.
Over the past few years, Pate-Meadows has concentrated on creating curtain patterns that allow customers with basic sewing skills to create high-end window treatments. These curtain patterns include details not found in most home-sewing patterns, so they yield more professional-looking results.
The curtain creations of Pate-Meadows Designs have appeared in numerous Southern Living Idea Houses, Southern Living Lowe's Show Homes and many other designer show houses. In addition, their designs appear frequently in Southern Living Magazine. The company won a national design competition sponsored by Window Fashions Magazine, and has had other designs featured in that publication. They have also been featured several times in Southern Lady Magazineas well as the Winter 2003 issue of Window & Wall Ideas.
In 1996, Pate-Meadows teamed up with Southern Living to produce a line of window treatment patterns. This line of Window Treatment Patternsfeatures many treatments and valances that have appeared in Southern Living Idea Houses. Since then, Pate-Meadows has a developed a line of their own curtain patterns called Show Home Patterns. The Show Home Pattern line is now available in over 100 fabric stores across the U.S.
In 2007 Curtains-To-Gowas created to offer the homeowner access to high-end, couture ready-made silk curtains. These silk drapery panelsare custom quality at ready-made availability. All of the Curtains-To-Go panels contain fine dressmaker details such as covered piping, covered buttons, and custom-designed heading styles. In addition, a superb line of hardware is available to complement the beautiful silk designer panels. |
