Parachute has long been one of our go-to sources for premium bedding, and now—much to our excitement—they’re adding curtains to their ever-growing collection. Whether you seek privacy, style, or customization, Parachute’s debut line of light-filtering curtains brings a laid back, lived-in look to your room.
The idea came to fruition when Parachute founder and CEO Ariel Kaye received feedback from customers who said they’d gotten crafty with the brand’s top sheets and shower curtains and fashioned them into their very own window treatments. "There are a lot of no-sew tutorials on the web for turning sheets into curtains. I’ve been very impressed by the stories and photos I’ve seen from customers," Kaye told MyDomaine. "I love the creativity, and am now happy to offer the Washed Linen Curtains to meet the demand!"
The curtains are made of 100 percent linen and backed with 100 percent cotton. Like Parachute’s bedding, they’re also OEKO-TEX certified, meaning they’re free of harmful chemicals and synthetics. At launch, they’re available in two yarn-dyed shades that offer subtle color variation: chambray grey and crisp white. You can also choose between two lengths—84 or 96 inches. Panels go for $169 to $189, depending on chosen length.
When it comes to styling, the relaxed curtains look best when just dusting the floor. The 84-inch curtains are ideal for windows hidden behind furniture or radiators, while the 96-inch option complements high ceilings and draws the eye upward.
Since they are light filtering, the curtains will soften morning and afternoon light while still offering some privacy. "I’m partial to linen curtains as the fabric has an airy, light quality that lets in just enough light," says Kaye.
The washed linen curtains can be hung individually or layered together for a fuller look. Parachute recommends one curtain for windows 24 to 48 inches wide and two curtains for windows 48 to 88 inches wide. They can be hung on rods for a clean, modern look or with rings for a more traditional feel, according to Kaye. Parachute is also selling both curtain rods and rings with hooks (they range from $19 to $89), so you can pick up everything at once.
