Ready Made Curtain by French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Kvadrat is a big relief for those of us who enjoy the look of quality window drapery and hate to fuss installing it. The system is reduced to the simplest idea – a hanging cord (instead of a traditional curtain pole), winding mechanism that allows this cord to fit any window, hanging pegs and several choices of fabric. The result – an elegant window treatment that is extremely easy to DIY. “We wanted to escape a hi-tech situation but we didn’t want to make something rustic or heavy either, – designers say. - The ambition was to create a new system that allows anyone to install a quality curtain in record time. Little skill and few tools are needed, margin for error has been considered and perfection isn’t an absolute requirement. In fact, the charm of the imperfect in opposition to the overly sanitised interior, is something we believe in.”
