I bought my Marrakech curtains probably at least 6 years ago, maybe even 10 years ago and I still love them. I have moved them from my living room to my kitchen. I have washed them with bleach several times and the turquoise has faded to the palest silver. They are hard to iron, but still hang beautifully and the quality of sunlight when it passes through the curtain is lovely. They have held up nicely to many machine washings and I think I like the faded embroidery better than the original color. I have ordered other curtains for my kitchen and sent them back because they did not look as good as these My kitchen is very small and painted a pale grey green with lots of colorful Mexican and Caribbean folk art on the walls so the panels blend in enough to make everything work without making my kitchen look smaller. I guess when they fully wear out I will have to buy another set of Marrakech curtains. I highly recommend them for design and quality.

Excuse me while I swoon
I bought these and feeling a little skeptical, but once I hung them up, I can't stop admiring my room.
These are worth the splurge and give a great compliment to my room. The detailed stitching is beautiful and I get many, many compliments on them.

Farmhouse meets trip around the world.
After obsessing over these curtains for a month, I finally placed my order. I got the gold for my family room, but decided they were a little to brassy for my taste and ordered the red. They are lovely. Unique, visually stunning, and since I travel a lot now that I am older, fits well with all of my collections of art, photography and artifacts from my trips. I also ordered Turquoise for my dining room and used the gold in a bath room behind the claw foot tube and spanish mirror I hauled back from Toledo. I even found nice rope tie backs through Renovator's Hardware where there is a nice selection of curtain rods. Very satisfied.
I waited several weeks to get the 108 inch panels on backorder and they were absolutely worth the wait. The teal color was just as it appears on the website and they feel beautiful. There is a lining that is only attached at the top but it doesn't really detract, you just have to make sure it's hidden. They hang beautifully. When they arrived, they were in special boxes with window cut outs. Unfortunately, some of the glue holding the boxes together got a spot on the fabric. The plain parts of the fabric that had the little covered balls pressed in to them during shipping had small dots left from the pressure. I simply laid them out flat on the carpet, steam ironed them from the reverse side and hung them on a rod from Pottery Barn. After a few days, I could no longer see the dots or the spot of glue. I put these in my little boy's Steam Punk room and they are perfect.

GORGEOUS, RICH DRAPES!
I got these on sale in the cream color.
They are not stiff or "fussy" at all.
The velvet is soft and moves easily.
All that ruching is rich and decadent.
If you LOVE the style you see here - you won't be disappointed.
I ordered two sets of curtains for my guest bedroom.
The other set isn't in the picture but it is to the right of the bed.
The top bedding is also from Anthropologie.

I bought the sand color and really wondered based on the online photo if they were going to look like an olive/khaki, but the are very much gold with no olive/green tone at all.
"parlor" is a good descriptive term for them as they look quite fancy and suitable for a room I would envision in an old movie like Gone With the Wind or something.
While they definitely have feminine appeal and beautiful details like the covered buttons, I think in a casual or more masculine room they would be right at home as well.
I hung them in my daughters room with tiebacks and used the Weaver Bird curtains as "sheers" underneath. They look expensive and are definitely worth the price in my opinion. I've purchased lesser quality curtains from Anthropologie and paid more. These might be my favorite ones yet.
These curtains are stunning! Yes, they cost a pretty penny, but I couldn't imagine my bedroom with any other curtains. These HAD to be it. And, indeed, they brought everything together.
I ordered these curtains in the light red color. I was concerned with other reviews about the actual color of the curtains in comparison with the way they look online. The color is true, but a bit more muted. So, it's not as bright as the picture online. It has more blue than yellow undertones, but I'd say that the online picture is pretty accurate. Maybe a bit mauve - but a happy mauve, not a sad mauve.
The curtains have a separate lining that is sewn to the top and side, adding an extra layer. I placed a white linen curtain behind these on a double-rod curtain.
Do not hesitate to order these. They are really beautiful.

Purchased these gorgeous drapes to go over my sliding doors to the back yard off of my family room. Besides the doors are numerous windows covered by off white linen roman shades. The natural color was the perfect compliment. The ruffles boast a earthy natural look - pure boho glam style. I hung the drapes high on the wall and they are an instant eye catcher when someone walks into the room. If you are concerned with the price, realize you get what you pay for. This is a luxe yet earthy style - therefore the threads and feathered ends are a compliment to the style. Highly recommend to someone looking for this style.

i ordered those in natural color. waited for ages until those became available. made me quite mad, but it was worth it. they're light, and subtly beautiful, with their pleats, and are exactly(or almost exactly) the color of my wall (Cangaroo by Benjamin Moore if u want to look it up, though i'm sure it looks slightly different on the screen), creating thus the soft, unintrusive look i wanted to create for my bedroom's window. they are rather transparent(do have lining, but thin one), so they do let the light in, but they transform it from a blinding and bright to a very soft, golden, fairy-tale-y one. in short, i'm in love with those curtains. i look at them and smile. they arrived a bit wrinkled, but no big deal..i never iron, it goes away by itself.
Gorgeous curtains. I got the red ones. They look just how they look in the pictures. Really pleased with them.

Light & Bright
The curtains are a nice neutral addition with the pom poms providing a touch of flair. I bought these in ivory for a guest room that doesn't receive much light and they really make the space bright. They are polished, but un-fussy and a bit boho. My husband liked them so much he wanted to order some for our bedroom, but there was only one panel left in stock when we decided to order. Sigh. The only con is that they are dryclean only due to the linen blend.

These are the most beautiful, fun curtains I've ever purchased. They are equal parts boho, casual (read: not stuffy!), and airy. They add such a unique touch to a room, even in one of the neutral colors! Love, love, love! I want to drape all of my windows in these!
I paired the grey curtains with the Posonby bedding collection and couldn't be happier with how everything turned out!
I ordered these curtains for our new house not knowing for sure how they would look in person and I'm blown away by how gorgeous they are! They are the first thing that everyone notices and comments on when they walk in the door. They are beautiful and great quality. I would recumbent these to everyone!

Bought these for my dining room makeover & I'm in love! They are so pretty in person & colors represented are very true to life.

I Love 'em! Just beautiful. I ordered 5 panels in blue. I was very happy they have liner on the back and they still let light in. The design is lovely and the colors of flowers and leaves are working beautifully together. They make a statement in my living room and dining room and I got many complements and questions about them from friends.
I can't find even one negative to say.
These tiebacks are absolutely darling. They are heavy and made well. They are bigger than I thought and really stand out. I recommend installing them with molly bolts because of their heft.

I love these but was only sent one, not the set of two. Still haven't heard back from CS to see if they are planning on sending th other of the set...
I was looking for a neutral curtain that had a little big of spunk. These fit the bill perfectly! The color is a neutral-y, muslin-y type of color, the material is light enough to let light through with some fibers woven through to give it that bohemian look, but my favorite thing about these curtains is the embroidered, sequined shapes.. Its really pretty and interesting without being too over the top. The colors of the embroidered shapes are light and dark grays, a pale blue, and a mustard yellow... all muted colors that will go with many decors.The sequins are subtle, you cant really see them unless you're really up close. I would highly reccomend these!

These curtains are absolutely beautiful. They are the perfect addition to my dining room. Very high quality with nice details. They have a lot of texture - shimmery embroidery throughout and velvety round circles near the top. Delicate and pretty against my light green walls. I highly recommend these curtains.
Curtains have a way of polishing off any room of the house. Being the incurable magpies that we are, we especially gravitate towards curtains that are embroidered, appliquéd and flocked, as they have a way of injecting levity and energy into your space. In addition to considering the palette, texture and opacity of your curtains (remember: a curtain's truest function is to filter the sun!), be sure to pay mind to your curtain hardware. From colorful glass and ceramic finals to burnished brass and iron rods, today's hardware choices are anything but staid. This season, we take a particular shine to those curtain panels and curtain hardware inspired by nature - think falling leaves, blooming flora and scurrying
