In my opinion, Austrian drapes are the most beautiful style of custom stage curtains out there.  Even if you have never heard the term “Austrian,” I am sure that you have seen one at some point – Austrians are the gorgeous curtains that lift straight-up in a series of soft swags (or “smiles,” as they are sometimes called).

Unfortunately, operable Austrian drapes are not usually found in a school or church, because they require complex motorized lift systems that generally are not practical for smaller applications.  But for a grand theatre or a major music tour, I can’t think of much that can beat an Austrian to make a dramatic, breathtaking statement.

Take a look at these Austrians we’ve made – I think you’ll agree!
