Who we are

Karen Rhodes Design was founded by interior designer, Karen Rhodes, as a way to provide people with the designer’s choice of curtain poles and accessories. Through years of working closely with our customers, including some of the UK’s largest retail groups, we have continually refined our product range and are now registered Silent Gliss partners; one of our most popular brands. Thanks to this partnership we have been thoroughly trained in all Silent Gliss products, and have grown to become your local Silent Gliss specialist within Edinburgh.

We are qualified to assist you in all aspects of product suitability and achieving the right look for your home.

Our professional knowledge and experience means we can assist with any window dressing issue. We specialise in made-to-measure curtain poles, and even provide a bending service for custom bay window poles.
