Paul Brown

If you’ve ever tried to make your own curtains, you know it’s one of life’s top-10 thankless tasks. Instead of spending weary hours over the Singer, call Paul Brown, who’s been making swags for the stars since 1968. Whether you want gothic floor-to-ceiling velvet or the lightest sheers, your wish will be granted.
