Bought 30 years ago by owner Laurie Chilton”s grandfather, when it was Nancy”s Drapery Shop, the store originally was supplied with stock from an old Sears store until that account expired. Then in 1982, the shop closed for a month, until Chilton and her mother re-opened the store. Since that day, Curtains and Covers” demand has grown. “We”re in a perfect area for growth, plus we”re probably the only store like this in the metro-Atlanta area. Unlike a Bed, Bath & Beyond, we offer merchandise from more custom-type companies or specialty shops. We don”t try to compete with the other home furnishings stores, we just stock what they don”t,” said Chilton.

Curtains and Covers provides “almost-custom” home fashions # fashions that are chosen from their materials and designs, but are still unique. Customers may bring in wallpaper or paint samples, match them to material and have whatever they want made. With brands like Croscill, Thomasville, Waverly and more, there”s plenty from which to choose. An abundant supply of ready-made fashions also is always available if you don”t have the time to have something made.
