A Window Into Our World

The Madcap Cottage gents are so lucky to have such amazing partners as we bring our branded product lines—literally, our babies—out into the world, from Robert Allen @Home to HSN and Smith + Noble. We love creating products that are available to ALL and not just to folks who are lucky enough to have interior designers or access to to-the-trade design centers.

That might be the Madcap Cottage bedding you spotted on HSN.

Another view of the Family Room, still very much a work in progress.

Or our glorious Robert Allen @Home  fabric collections—Into the Garden and A Collector’s Eye—that you spotted at Calico outposts, among other fine retailers,  from coast to coast.

And how about the amazing Madcap window treatments that can be had courtesy of our friends at Smith + Noble!

And don’t think that we don’t use the products that we create in our own home, the House of Bedlam. Of course, we do, we do! The Madcaps develop products that we want and need and that we think fulfill a hole in the marketplace.

We selected our Cove End fabric in jaunty Daffodil to bring a classic, but revved-up sensibility to the windows in the show house Family Room. The rich gray grosgrain trim is the perfect finishing detail to create bespoke-quality window treatments.

Again, good design should be available to all.

We love showcasing our partners in our far-flung projects, too, including the many show houses in which we have been lucky enough to participate. Last week, for instance, we installed the Madcap-designed Family Room at the DJF Builders Designer Show House in Raleigh, North Carolina that benefits the Boys & Girls Clubs and, of course, we asked S+N to craft the window treatments from our Robert Allen fabrics for the room.

Wow, the Madrid Medium Collection window hardware and single pleat curtain panels could not be more gorgeous or spot on. We love the details, such as the gray grosgrain ribbon tape treatment that we selected, and the finishing work that is just gorgeous.

So if you are looking for window treatments for your own home that are anything but beige and boring—from shades to curtain panels, valances, and cornices—consider the Madcap Cottage collection for Smith + Noble. The options are endless, and all you have to do is go online!

The Madcap Cottage gents are so excited to announce our latest partnership, a collaboration between the MCs and Smith & Noble, the forward-thinking window treatments vendor!

“There’s no better catalogue- and online-driven source than S&N,” says John. “We have received the Smith & Noble catalogue—and used their product—for years, so the fit is absolute perfection. We are very lucky to have new partners with such vision and reach.”

Browse the S&N collection of window treatments—from drapes and shades to blinds—and layer-in the Madcap Cottage assortment of fabrics from our Robert Allen @Home collection, from tropic-luxe Bermuda Bay to garden-plucked Isleboro Eve and India-inspired Monsoon Palace.

“We believe in the democratization of good design,” notes Jason Oliver. “Fabulous interior design should be available to all, whether you have access to an interior designer and design center or not. Smith & Noble is the perfect vehicle to give élan to your windows without the need to ever leave home. And at a wonderful, accessible price point to boot! Who needs brick and mortar in this day and age.”
