Umbra curtain rod
Linda from Columbia, TN– Verified Buyer
Really love the look of the rods, was a little disappointed in the wall mounts. Had hoped for them to be more decorative instead of just hardware. Not sure what the product description of the mountings were.
Great look, Great price
Garrett from Concord, CA– Verified Buyer– Top 1000 Reviewer
I purchased several of these rods to cover windows in my new house. They look great and are a great value - the price won't break the bank if you need to purchase several.
Gamel from NY– Verified Buyer
I read a lot of the reviews before buying these so I was a little sceptical to order but when I received them I was very satisfied! After carefully peeling off the plastic protective layer, they were exactly as the description states. They are beautiful and very nice and I am going to order more! I'd give them a 6 if possible! Great product, great price and great service! These are definitely worth more than what I paid!

This is a pretty nice product. It is just what we wanted. I liked that it was made out of metal and not plastic. This should be listed in the product description cause it is a rare find. Very pleased
