We are return customers who didn't originally plan to add more window treatments to our home but we are so glad we did. Marie did beautiful work in four rooms. We now have a custom Roman shade that provides much needed darkness in a very sunny room, and panel drapes in three other rooms that add dimension, softness, and fun patterns. They are beautifully made with custom rods that match our modern taste. Marie was very patient and talked us through all options for patterns, lining, and how everything will hang. It's very detailed work, and they were all completed ahead of schedule! We are very happy and can't stop looking at them in our home.
Thank you, Marie!

Marie with Arentine Designs reworked my living room and master bedroom window panels which had been poorly done by another drapery workroom. Originally, I asked her to redo the hems in the living room panels as there was puckering close to the bottom. Then, based on her suggestions, we made slight changes to the construction of the panels, eliminating some of the extra fabric, The bedroom panels needed a complete rework as originally they had been constructed inside out by the first drapery workroom. Marie worked efficiently, and her fee for the work was fair and reasonable. I am very happy with the final results in both rooms and won't hesitate to recommend Marie to others who may need her services.

Hi Marie: Just wanted to say thanks again for your work in recreating my panels for MBR and LR. Every time I go into each of the rooms I am happy that I found you and that you were able to take a bad situation and turn it into something very good! I'm especially happy that we went with the reduced panels and the rings. It gives just the look I was hoping for.

Sincerely, Judy, John and S.

Marie was wonderful to work with. She made an upholstered headboard and comforter that really helped pull the room together. Communication was clear, and she maintained her project schedule. Highly recommend.

I have worked with Marie and her team on several projects and they are great! I've had them make drapery panels, cushions and pillows for my living room and all of my bedrooms. Marie is very knowledgeable, responds in a timely manner, her quotes are always correct and she isn't afraid to ask questions to make sure they create exactly what you're looking for. She is very talented! I highly recommend Arentine Designs Custom Drapery. You will 100% be happy with the quality of their work. Also! Marie even helped me fix an issue with my roman shades from a different manufacturer! She knew exactly the issue and how to fix it :)

I have worked with Marie and Arentine designs for almost 20 years. She has been my workroom no matter what company I was working for...I have brought Arentine Designs with me. The commitment to excellence that they give is unmatched! I will continue to use them for window treatments, bedding and blinds and shutters without a doubt! Not to mention Marie is wonderful at suggesting great options I might not have thought of after she's measured!

Arentine Designs has been my "partner in design" for 20+ years. Marie, owner, has a creative spirit and technological skills which have never failed to implement my designs. Whether it be window treatments, custom hardware, or bedding, Marie and I have collaborated to make my designs come to life for my clients. An additional trait which I truly admire in Marie is ethics. Sometimes rare in the design community, Marie's ethics, in all of these  years, have never faltered. For these 20+ years I have considered Arentine Designs and Marie my greatest ally in design.

Linda A.

I have used Arentine Designs for over 20 years for many different projects and have referred them to several friends.  Each time I have gotten exactly what I asked for, on time, at a reasonable price-as did my friends.  In addition, Marie has great ideas!  She understands each of my projects and helps me creatively communicate the feeling I am looking for!  Great resource!

Marie has done many jobs for me over the last 20+ years and she has always been professional, reasonably priced, and thorough. She has given me new ideas, offered solutions and completed each job in the time she estimated. She even helped friends source products that did not benefit her at all- she is just a nice person and a pleasure to work with!

Lisa C.

Love my window treatments. I have a hard time looking at windows and seeing how they can be made better. I was so lucky to have found Marie. She has great ideas and was so willing to work within my budget. She is a perfectionist, and that just makes the end product so much better. If you are looking for beautiful, custom, one of a kind window treatments I would call on Arentine Designs. I already plan on using her for all of my windows in my new house.

Arentine Design's draperies are a work of art. Beautiful every time. I have used them multiple times and they work with my amazing designer and always make my windows look perfect. I also have beautiful custom bedding and my baby girl nursery is gorgeous.

Amy I.

Arentine Designs drapery workroom has been my ONLY workroom for 15 years.
Marie, owner of Arentine sets the bar high in fabrication as well as how she runs her business.
I've recommended her to many designers without thinking twice as I know she will treat them as well as she has myself over the years.  She always helps make my work with clients easier as she has a great knowledge of fabrics and treatments.  Marie's attention to detail as well warmth will keep me as a client as long as she's around.

I had the pleasure of working with Marie on a project in my home that turned out very nice! With only a little over a week's notice before an art exhibition that I was hosting at my home, Marie came over to pick up the fabric. I received a follow up email and within a few days, she came over with her installer. The project was completed 3 days before my party and she did a beautiful job! I will definitely call Marie for my next fabric project!
