Our lined Jacobean Abstract Beacon Valances are a wonderful combination of old and new. The floral elements in this print are abstracted from Jacobean designs dating back centuries. Today, artisans table print the cloth in small batches to encourage subtle dye and spacing variations - combining the most essential elements of Jacobean design with a tonal palette creating a crisp look perfect for home decorating. Our Beacon cut can be gathered to create three distinct looks: gather evenly across the rod for a standard shaped valance look as shown in the Taupe. Press the front flat and finger pleat only on the return to the wall to create a cornice look as shown in the Delft Blue. The Mineral Red photo is gathered to create the framed look of a reverse rounded pleat by focusing the pleats around the two small scallops which are kept flat.
