Achieving a classic antique look in this world of modern design can be a difficult task. You want something that is simple and elegant yet sophisticated and unique. This curtain rod put together by Kimberly Duran, author of Swoon Worthy, does just that. In a charge to remodel her bathroom, called "Operation Bathroom Remodel", Kimberly came up with this unique design. She uses Kee Klamp fittings and pipe to create the curtain rod and painted it an antique gold color to give it that classy, sophisticated look that pairs well with the other elements in the bathroom. The antique gold look is continued throughout the bathroom including in the chandelier, mirror, faucet, drawer handles, and other various bathroom hardware.

Allison from Golden Sycamore used Kee Klamp pipe fittings to put together a rustic looking curtain rod for her bedroom. The pipe and fittings were distressed using a unique heating method. The heating of the pipe and fittings discolors and ages the metal, giving the entire curtain rod some very unique character.
As the founder of Simplified Building Concepts I wanted to have an office that reflected the amazing home and office applications of Kee Klamp pipe fittings. I've been building pipe furniture for over 6 years and I never cease to be amazed with the new ideas and arrangements that can be created with these simple, but profound, building materials.
Why go for a standard curtain rod made of flimsy plastic when you can have something made out of pipe! That's what I thought when I needed to outfit my new office with curtains. Since I was already making the desk and shelves out of pipe, why not the the curtain rods as well. Pipe is easy to work with and it's very rigid.
