Lambrequinsare simply elaborate cornices that extend part of the way down the sides of the window or, for a dramatic effect, all the way to the floor. Like cornices, lambrequins can be plain or upholstered.
Although most are very formal, they bring whimsy to a child's room when painted or covered in a playful fabric. Because a lambrequin covers a greater area of the window, it's even more efficient than a cornice at keeping heat in and cold out in winter.
