NORTH CANTON — Beyond the Fringe offers a variety of custom window treatments for residential homes and commercial establishments.

The nine-year-old business, owned by Marci Held, is located at 6287 Promler Ave. N.W., near The Strip.

Held said she designs, fabricates and installs custom window treatments, and she also makes bedding and accessories for residential customers.

Window treatments include a wide range of draperies and toppers such as valances, and Held said she can order quality blinds to finish the look for customers.

In addition to bed covers, Held said she creates headboards and pillow covers that can complete the look in a bedroom, as well as table covers and runners that will coordinate well with window treatments.

In addition, she makes pet beds and holiday tree skirts and stockings.

Held said the design process for a project begins with an in-home consultation to talk to customers about their needs and personal tastes. She added the visit gives her a chance to look at the site and take accurate measurements. Held said she takes into account factors such as light control, privacy and a customer’s personal taste in selecting styles and materials, but she also encourages customers to look through magazines and books to determine the styles of window treatments they like.

“Custom design window treatments can be very affordable, and custom design work offers great convenience,” said Held. “In addition, customers will get a well-crafted item.”

Held said instead of customers having to travel to a lot of stores to search for what they want, having to settle for something less than perfect and ill-fitting, and then not knowing how to properly hang the item, custom work ensures customers will get exactly what they want. In addition, her installation work ensures all window treatments look good.

In addition, custom work offers personalized choices that will ensure a good match to any décor, she added.

“I offer meticulous workmanship and experience to ensure that my products will hang right and look great,” said Held.

Held said she gives customers a quote on every project, and a 75 percent down payment is required. Most orders can be completed in four to five weeks.

Beyond the Fringe business hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, but appointments are flexible.
