Orion Ornamental Iron, which celebrates its 26th anniversary this year, has distributors and dealers throughout the United States.В The company, headquartered in the Los Angeles, CA area, is known for its extensive line of drapery hardware.В It is owned by brothers Sunil Patel, CEO, and Atul Patel, President.
"We are very proud of our extensive collections, which are featured in our color catalogs and on our web (www.ironartbyorion.com)," said Sunil Patel, CEO.В He added that Orion now offers nearly 300 finials (160 iron finials, 27 Crystal Finials, 34 wood finials, 20 glass finials, and 53 resin finials) and more than 37 styles of drapery rods (12 iron rods, 19 decorative rods, and 6 Inlay rods).
"Our company now offers one of the largest groupings of finials and curtain rods in the window treatment hardware industry," said Atul Patel, President. "Our goal was to design all of our window treatment hardware so that it gives interior designers and their customers great selections in iron, resin, crystal, glass, and wood finials, as well as choices in iron and wood drapery rods in an extensive variety of styles and finishes."
"One of our most exciting collections is our WCMA (Window Covering Manufacturers Assn.) award winning Designers' Choice Traversing hardware," said the CEO. "One of its best features is that all rods are offered motorized also." В
The line consists of heavy duty traversing hardware in both iron and wood.В Orion is the first in the drapery hardware industry to provide both iron and wood traversing rods, in both single and double traversing styles.В "And," added Atul Patel, "our Designers' Choice line also includes another designer favorite: all track is available in four designer finishes."
Sunil Patel added, "All of these heavy duty traversing rods are available with and without rings вЂ“ another industry first."В The Iron Art drapery rods are available in 31 finishes and the Wood Art drapery hardware rods are available in 11 different finishes.
Orion Ornamental Iron, which sells iron and wood curtain and drapery rods up to 30 feet in length,В makes all rods available in traversing and non-traversing styles, as custom drapery rods or in standard lengths, as well as in custom and standard finishes.В В "We want Orion always to be known as the company which offers the most unique and the widest selection of window treatment hardware and the newest in important features in the design industry," said Atul Patel.
"With our acquisition of KBlair Finials," Sunil Patel said, "we can now offer that distinctive line of hand-cut crystal finials, which are available as crystal medallions, crystal drapery finials, and crystal stair newels.В One of the many reasons we acquired this outstanding company was because of its many hand painted finishes, its lovely hand-painted resin finials and its Inlay Rods, which are another first in the drapery rod industry."
Orion acquired KBlair Finials in 2008, and added that company's distinctive handcut crystal finials, decorative Inlay drapery rods,В unique resin finials, and exquisite hand-painted finishes to its multiple drapery hardware and curtain hardware offerings.
When asked about new and innovative drapery hardware products, the company president said, "One of our most recent introductions is our award winning Designers' Choice traversing hardware line. However, we are constantly working on new products and will be making new introductions in the coming months." В
KBlair Finials, winner of the Platinum ADEX Award, offers Inlay Rods, available six unique design styles, in traversing and non-traversing, in 20 different finishes, and with and without rings.В Both resin finials and crystal finials can be used on these Inlay drapery rods.В KBlair celebrates its 16th anniversary this year.В The company is noted not only for its Inlay Rods, but also for its custom curtain rods, hand-painted resin finials and unique hand-cut crystal finials.В The crystal, which come in sizes ranging from a truly remarkable 6.5" in diameter down to a petite 3" in diameter, was created to give the designer wide choices in window treatment hardware.
"Orion's goal is to consistently be in the forefront with new designs and product offerings.В In our difficult economic times, we want to reach out to our interior designers to help them by offering an extensive line of finials in iron, crystal, wood and resin, together with iron and wood drapery rods.В We provide custom curtain rods and custom finials.В Our drapery rods make a designer's life easier because they come up to 30 feet in length, in an extensive selection of hand-painted finishes, and in traversing and non-traversing styles and with heavy duty hardware," added Atul Patel.
