Curtain holdbacks are very useful for patio doors where there is a lot of passing traffic and the curtains need to be held back during the day for ease of access through the door. They also will hold the curtains neatly in formal folds or a decorative swag if you wish to arrange the curtains away from the window during the day, allowing for maximum light to enter the room.
This style of window treatment is very popular as it enables two different types of window coverings to hang simultaniously at the same window. The first layer is normally either sheer curtains or a blind. The second layer is normal the main curtains that are often dressed behind holdbacks when they are not in use.

There are two main types of curtain holdbacks, both of them holding the curtains away from the window opening in two different ways.
This type of holdback consists of a short piece of cylindrical metal or wood and projects horizontally from the wall. The front of the holdback is often finished off with a disc which is often quite decorative or may reflect the design of the curtain pole finial. The disc is normally about 4" or 5" in diameter which ensures that the curtains are held fast behind the disc to keep the curtains in place. The Ombre holdback is fitted near the edge of the window recess which allows the curtains to be folded or dressed in a swag behind the holdback, keeping the curtains well away from the window opening.
This type of curtain holdback is also fitted near the edge of the window recess. The general design of this holdback resembles a “U” shape. The curtain is neatly pleated and then placed into the holdback which then retains the curtain and stops it from encroaching over the window opening.
