Apex windows are elegant windows which allow a lot of light into a room. Most types of window treatment are suitable, and they also present an opportunity to use either static or fixed headings, with the curtains held open either by tie-backs, ombra (stylish hold backs) or Italian stringing. Apex windows also require fixed headings and again the curtains will need to be held open in some way.

To Italian string curtains, six or more rings are sewn into the lining side of the curtain, set in from the leading edges. Cords are threaded through the rings up to screw eyes on the underside of the pelmet board and secured onto a cleat hook at the side of the curtain.  When the curtains are lifted the top remains stationary, while the sides lift up and away – as they do in a theatre.
