Types of Curtain Holdbacks

There are two main types of curtain holdbacks, with both of them holding the curtain off the window in two different ways. The first type of holdback is called an Ombre holdback which consists of a short piece of cylindrical metal or wood and projects horizontally from the wall. The top of the holdback is often finished off with a disc to keep the curtain in place. The Ombre holdback is fitted near the edge of the window recess which allows the curtain to be stacked behind the holdback to keep it away from the window area.

The second type of curtain holdback – which is called an Embrace 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 folded and placed into the holdback which then retains the curtain and stops it from encroaching into the window space.
