stylists & design assistance

can you help me choose my decor?

Yes! Loom offers complimentary design assistance, whether you want to design the perfect piece or coordinate a whole room of Loom textiles. Get the specifics on how a Loom Stylist can help. Or contact a Stylist via chat, email or phone at 1.855.ASK.LOOM. Stylists are available Monday through Friday, 9:30am to 7:00pm Eastern Time.

what kinds of questions & projects can a Stylist help with?

Stylists can help with anything from choosing the right fabric to measuring for window treatments to creating a moodboard for a whole room of coordinated pieces. For more on how we can help, read about our complimentary design assistance.

The only thing our Stylists can’t do is source or advise on items outside of Loom’s products. That’s really a job for an interior designer. We do work with many great designers, though, so contact a Stylist and she may be able to recommend one in your area.

is working with a stylist really free?

Yes! Working with a Stylist is always free. You have unlimited access to our Stylists to help you choose the perfect Loom decor. No hidden fees or agendas!

can a Stylist come to my home?

Unfortunately, all of our Stylists are located in Nashville, so we can only make house visits locally. However, we would be happy to setup a Skype, FaceTime or Google Hangout session to see your house live!

products & fabrics

how do custom window treatments and furnishings differ from what I’d find in stores?

Our quality matches that of professional interior designers and luxury home furnishings, but at prices more typical of off the shelf products. How do we do it?

First, we take care to choose the finest quality fabrics from top interior designer brands such as Kravet. No flimsy fabrics here! To see for yourself, order free swatches.

Second, our products are handcrafted in the US with designer details. For example, our window treatments are made with high quality lining, hidden hems, weights in the corners and buckram stiffener at the top to help them hang more beautifully. And our pillows and duvet covers are designed to be plush and full and to hide unsightly zippers.

Finally, you can choose special options like blackout lining on your window treatments and order completely custom sizes, so that you are sure to get the perfect fit for your home.

can you make custom sizes that i don't see online?

Yes! We can make custom sized drapery, roman shades, bedskirts and cushions. We are working to add online ordering for custom sizes soon. In the meantime, to order a custom size, contact a Stylist.

can you come measure or install window treatments for me?

Because all of our Stylists are in Nashville, we can't make house calls. However, send us a picture of your window and we’ll mark up exactly which measurements to take to ensure you get the perfect fit. In addition, we have a network of measure & installation professionals in many cities. Contact a Stylist for a recommendation in your area.

can you make custom furnishings not shown in your online catalog?

Yes, we can make some other custom furnishings. For example, we can make almost any drapery style including ripple fold drapery, pinch pleat drapery, tab back drapery, café curtains and additional roman shade styles. We also can make custom cushions for indoor and outdoor use. We do not, however, make furniture or other large items that have to be shipped with special delivery. If you have a project in mind, just check with a Stylist.

do you make custom furnishings with customers own material (com)?

Currently we do not make COM items. However, if this is something you are interested in, please email us your feedback so we can consider this as a new feature.

can I order fabric swatches for quality and color reference? how about larger memos?

Of course! The best part...our 4” x 4” fabric swatches are complimentary. Just click “order swatch” to add samples to your cart while viewing or creating a product or as you browse fabrics. When you are ready, just proceed to checkout as usual. If your order total is $0.00, you will not be asked for a credit card. Your swatches should arrive via USPS in 3 - 5 business days.

Larger memos are available with a deposit that will be refunded upon the return of the memo. Please contact a Stylist to request a memo.

can I order fabric by the yard?

Yes, our fabrics are available by the yard. Just click the “order yardage” button on any fabric page. You will be taken to our fabric by the yard page where you select the number of yards you would like in the quantity field. When calculating the yardage you need, keep in mind all of our fabrics measure 50” wide. If you need help determining how many yards you need, please contact a Stylist.

Please note, the maximum continuous yardage varies per fabric between 30 and 60 yards. A Loom Stylist will contact you if the yardage will not be continuous

how do I clean and care for my Loom furnishings?

For window treatments, we recommend periodic cleaning with a low suction, hand-held vacuum or dusting with a clean cloth or duster. For a deeper clean, we suggest hiring a professional window treatment cleaner.

For all other furnishings, we highly recommend dry-cleaning to ensure they look beautiful for many years to come. Washing can cause fabrics to fade or bleed. Plus, different types of fabric shrink at different rates and could cause your item to look damaged or warped.

If you have questions about caring for your Loom furnishings, please contact a Stylist.
