Not less interesting is the curtain rod "Spannstange" an innovation from Artline by Nya Nordiska. This rod made of Ø 6 or 8 mm stainless steel is able to bridge mounting distances up to 5 m without intermediate brackets! "Following the trend to more delicate curtain rods Artline designed this excellent problem-solver" that was honoured with the Busse Longlife Award 2008.
And these clips that hold nonchalantly fine curtains are a cool alternative to the usual rings:
All above products are made by the same company which name sounds so nordic, so scandinavian. But, who would have thought, it is German !
