Looking for plain or textured black curtains?

From global-inspired jacquards to statement plains, our collection has everything you need to introduce this surprisingly versatile hue into your home.

Start with a pattern

Black curtains make a welcome addition to almost any room in the home. They add depth and definition and really pull the eye towards the window. But if you’re new to this colour, or if you’re unsure about how to show it off to its best effect, start with a pattern. Our Moroccan-inspired Harran fabric has a neutral base with a black mosaic motif, which creates a focal point without overpowering a space.

Global textures

Used in the right way, black has an earthiness that works well in global-inspired interiors. To get this popular look at home, dress your windows with a pair of printed curtains - full-length for added impact - then finish your space with coordinating black accessories, like picture frames and pendant lighting. Our Muriva Cocoa fabric can also be made into cushions for that perfect finishing touch.

Mono, made easy

For maximum impact, it has to be plain black. Our Tetbury charcoal curtains look best when paired with neutral walls and simple white furnishings for that modern mono style.

Tone it down

We know that plain black curtains aren’t for everyone, which is why we’ve a wide range of charcoal fabrics too. You’ll still get all the benefits of black, such as adding depth and definition, but without the intensity of the undiluted hue. Try our herringbone weave Harlow curtains for a lovely textured effect at the window.
