FabAuxGets is the name of my curtain and soft furnishing business based in Les Gets, Portes du Soleil. My name is Nicki and I have a workshop situated in the Old Village of Les Gets. I have had my own business here for 4 years and previously have worked here and in the UK creating hand made bespoke curtains, blinds, cushions, upholstery and other soft furnishings, tailored to each clients’ requirements.
Curtains make a house a home! There are many different styles of headings and finishes which go towards creating the finished look. It is important to make sure that the style compliments the room and works with the size and shape of the window. The rails, or poles are also an important part of the look and I work with Silentgliss and Houles which have a lovely selection of lovely quality products.
For areas that require a more minimalist look, a blind is very often a lovely solution. I work with a company called Luxaflex who create lovely honeycombe style blinds which fit inside the window frame, therefore avoiding problems with door handles and move with any opening windows. Roman Blinds are also a neat way to dress a window, and use far less fabric than a curtain.
Cushions are a lovely way to bring the curtain colour/style into the room. They can be plain, piped, zipped or by adding fancy braiding they can really make a statement.
