3. Modern Tension Rods Without the Headache

Industrial design is giving way to futuristic convenience in cozy living spaces—that means clean lines and high-tech metals mixing with fabrics and textures that make you feel comfortable. Traditional lightweight fabrics like organza or cotton can walk this line on the Cable Curtain Rod by Studio from JCPenney. The super sleek tension rod comes in three lengths, three colors (antique gold, black and pewter) and ranges from $19.99 to $29.99. Taking a cue from modern appliance design, the rod is 100 percent stainless steel with a zinc finial. It almost invisibly holds up a window covering, and can even be used outdoors due to its rust-proof steel.
