Marrying Style and Function – Silent Gliss Metropole and Silent Gliss Fabrics

Silent Gliss have beautifully balanced style with function in their Metropole range.  Couple Metropole with a high performing, yet stylish fabric from the Silent Gliss fabric collection and it is certain to create a real statement at your window or over your bi-fold or sliding doors.  Silent Gliss’s range of fabrics feature superior performance in sustainability, acoustic management and light and energy management delivering a range that complements modern living.  All Silent Gliss’s fabrics are inherently flame retardant for added peace of mind, and are dyed before being woven so have increased light fastness, reduced light fading ensuring they last the test of time.  Silent Gliss’s fabrics are all wide width so curtains can be made up without any joins / seams.  This is ideal for the wave curtain heading style and for extra wide blinds.  Curtains can be made up to a drop of 4m so are ideal in rooms with floor to ceiling glazing.  Silent Gliss Metropoles can be joined together so can facilitate very wide widths, offering the perfect solution for large contemporary living spaces featuring lots of glazing.

Voiles / Sheers

A voile / sheer fabric is an ideal fabric for providing some shading / privacy at your window whilst still allowing the light into a room.  A voile / sheer delivers a light, floaty look and is a popular choice for open plan living spaces.  Shop Silent Gliss’s range of transparent fabrics here.  Silent Gliss’s Polyflax fabric is a structured polyester fabric with a beautifully, soft, natural linen-look.  It is featured below on a Silent Gliss 30mm Metropole with spear finials in charcoal.  Featuring a lighter fabric on a darker pole creates a confident, design led look.

Semi-Sheers

If you require a higher level of privacy or would like more shading a semi sheer can work well.  Semi sheers still deliver a lighter feel than a standard fabric, yet offer increased privacy.  Shop Silent Gliss’s range of semi-transparent fabrics here.  Silent Gliss’s Colorama 2 fabric is a best seller offering a uniform and stable weave, and is available in a wide range of colours to suit a variety of interior design styles and colour schemes.  Colorama 2 is featured below on a Silent Gliss 30mm Metropole with Ellipse finials in black.

Modern Living Spaces

Acoustic Fabrics

Silent Gliss’s fabrics offer superior acoustic properties, helping to absorb sound.  This can be particularly advantageous in open plan living spaces, featuring a lot of hard surfaces such as kitchen units, wooden or stone floors and glazing, that all help to bounce sound around a room.  Ceilings are also getting higher which adds to the requirement for soft furnishings to help absorb sound.  Shop Silent Gliss’s range of acoustic fabrics.

Light Management and Glare Protection

With the increase in the amount of glazing featuring in our living spaces, the ability to reflect light and heat back out of a room is even increasing.  Likewise, the sun can create glare on computer and TV screens so fabrics that can reduce this are advantageous.  Shop Silent Gliss’s range of light reflective fabrics.  Silent Gliss’s Colorama 1 Alu and Reflex feature an aluminium backing reflecting light back out of a room.  This can be particularly beneficial for south facing rooms that can get very hot.

Dimout / Blackout Fabrics

Silent Gliss offer a superb range of dim-out and blackout fabrics helping to reduce light ingress into a room, ideal for bedrooms to aid a good nights sleep.  Shop their dim-out and blackout fabrics here.  Silent Gliss Multicolour Dimout is featured below on a Silent Gliss 30mm Metropole with Taper finials in Bronze.  Please note these fabrics have been designed to be unlined, however, without a lining on the curtains there will be a stitch line along the bottom seam which is visible when light penetrates through the fabric.  If the curtains sit against a wall this won’t be noticeable, but it will be visible in the daytime if the curtains are drawn across floor to ceiling glazing.
