The Difference Between Drapery Medallions and Holdbacks

Drapery Holdbacks: Holdbacks are exactly what they sound like: they hold back the drapery panel from the window and allow natural light into a room. They can be curved or straight and usually have a finial or a medallion attached.

Drapery Medallions: Medallions are an alternate way to hang window treatments other than the traditional drapery rod. Drapery panels or valances are either hung or swagged from them. Medallions can also be inserted into cornice boards to add depth and dimension. Medallions are often used to hang treatments in awkward areas of the home that don’t allow for a traditional rod to be hung.
