First Curtain Call — NOLA
504-485-3688
Locally owned and operated, First Curtain Call is a new and fresh idea to purchasing draperies. Usually, shoppers find a panel or fabric in the store that they believe will be perfect for their windows. They bring a panel or swatch home only to find that the fabric color changes because the lighting in the store is different from in their home. As a result, drapery shopping can be time-consuming and frustrating. 
First Curtain Call offers a unique approach. Cynthia Webb, the owner, not only brings a beautiful collection of draperies to the client’s home but also hangs full-length panels with special equipment by the window. There is no imagination needed as to what the window treatment will look like once it is installed. Draperies are offered in custom, semi-custom and ready-made. The semi-custom line is less expensive than custom and is a very detailed-oriented collection with many different pleats, colors and fabrics. She offers very unique hardware that is the finishing touch to any window.  With First Curtain Call, you will find a designer look with a custom price.
