I’ve worked with Urban Loft Window Treatments on many drapery projects and could not be more pleased. The knowledge, attention to detail, design aesthetic and customer service were all excellent. Claudia has such style and such passion for her drapery projects, it is truly a joy to work with her and experience her creativity.

From the consultation meeting to the installation every step was seamless. As an interior designer I’m very selective about drapery as well as the professionalism in the process– it is uncommon to find a business that I can so enthusiastically recommend and refer to without reservation. I highly recommend Urban Loft Window Treatments for any window or upholstery project!
