Atomic Mid-Century Barkcloth Curtains

Whoo hoo! After searching and searching and searching for curtains, enough Eames style curtains in the right size, right amount, right colors and right patterns at a cost I could afford, I FINALLY scored just about enough for my 6 huge, floor to ceiling living room windows!

OK, so my color scheme is mostly black, red, gray and gold, so I'll just have to deal with the little turquoise color also thrown in, but it will work nicely!

It still won't quite be enough (4 panels each at 40" x 86"), it's the right amount for not quite four out of the 6 windows, so I will have white curtains on two windows in-between.

I was never going to live long enough to find enough curtain material for all 6 windows!

Now to find barkcloth curtains for a couple other rooms. With smaller windows *whew*

I'm guessing barkcloth is a dry-clean only deal? Anyone know?

I also wanted to thank each and every one of you who responded to my "Mid-Century Debate" (last post). I read every response carefully and learned a lot about each one of your ideas regarding this issue. Some of your had perspectives I'd never thought of! Very interesting to say the least. Thank you very much for all your replies. I wanted to respond to each one, and will do so later after I wake up, with a new post.
