A Team of Passionate Fabricators & Installers

Family owned & operated

Drapery Enterprises, Inc. first opened its doors in 1948 as a wholesale workroom. Lois and Bill Laidlaw are now in the process of turning over the reins to their daughter Wendi Strong who has been in training for the past several years.

Bringing fresh new ideas and spirit to the business while maintaining the standards of superior workmanship, customer service and design assistance that our customers have come to count on, Wendi is current on all new trends in the window fashions industry.

Wendi Strong

With an extensive background in textiles, from the carpet industry, and also from years of sewing, Wendi knows how fabrics handle. She also attends numerous national window covering conferences annually. Currently a member of the WCAA (Window Coverings Association of America), she also served on the board of the Northern California chapter.

As the new head of the company, she intends to use her experience to give our designers the competitive edge they need to stay ahead of the competition. Lois is still available for consultations, estimates, on-site design consultations and measures – by appointment.

Our Design Process

Our family owned business has lasted for generations, while keeping up with the times and current innovation. We bring the handcrafted personal touch that only a family business can deliver.


We connect with our clients and research what it takes to bring their designs to life. It’s where the whole custom design process starts, with you!


The handcrafted, personal touch that comes with designing all of our drapery and soft goods interior design creations – this is our favorite part.


Design and installation go hand and hand, and we cover every part of the creation, design and installation process.
