Welcome to Design at Denton Drapes
Denton Drapes specialises in the creation of high quality couture soft furnishings, handsewn by our skilled team of curtain makers, applying traditional craft skills and techniques with contemporary design and technology in our fully equipped Bedfordshire workrooms.
No obligation consultations with our soft furnishing design professionals can take place in the comfort of your own home or by appointment in our showroom near Milton Keynes where you can select from a wide range of contemporary and traditional fabrics. We also supply tracks, poles and sundries as well as fitting, hanging and dressing our treaments.
Our principal, Penny Bruce, is passionate about the design of beautiful soft furnishings building on a lifetime’s career in fabrics and fashion. Originally trained as a fashion designer, Penny worked in technical roles for labels like Aquascutum and Alexon before making the move to soft furnishings.
Her soft furnishing skills were developed through training at The National Design Academy and her ongoing involvement with the Association of Master Upholsterers (AMUSF) and Soft Furnishers and the US based Home Furnishings Academy.
As a fully accredited Member of the AMUSF and subject to their rigorous assessment process, Denton Drapes' work is always of the highest quality. Penny has developed a robust quality control process and coaches each member of the team personally.
Her commitment to the protection and development of the soft furnishing craft was recognised in 2012 when she was elected to the Board of the AMUSF where she now serves as a Director.
Since 1997 Penny has built Denton Drapes from a home based business to a fully staffed and equipped professional curtain workroom providing couture soft furnishings to discerning home owners and to the interior design elite.
Clients and designers are welcome to visit the workrooms at any time to view the work in progress, browse through our extensive range of fabrics and curtain supplies, and to discuss their requirements directly with Penny and her team.
