The curtains frame your view in luxury and keep light out for a sense of calm. The soft cotton velvet falls elegantly, adding intensity to the dark-blue color while insulating against heat and cold.

Product details

The thick curtains darken the room and provide privacy by preventing people outside from seeing into the room.

Luxurious thick velvet that falls elegantly and captures the light, adding depth and richness to the color. The dense weave dampens sound, softens light from outside and is also resistant to pilling.

Velvet has a luxurious character and can help glam up the look and style of a room but the soft material can also be used to create a cosy and relaxed space with a warm, comforting feel.

Effective at keeping out both drafts in the winter and heat in the summer.

The heading tape also has hidden tabs that allow you to hang the curtain directly on a curtain rod.

Love the look / qualityKevinThey are great blinds that look really classy, and were easy to install. I was able to give a more dramatic look by hanging them from the ceiling with the kit I also purchased.5
good valueSusanhang nicely, color is great5
Poor quality, frumpyAmandaUnfortunately these did not live up to the hype. Most disappointing is the quality. After the initial wash numerous spots on each curtain had worn away. This is not a sign of longevity. And for the price I expect more. The color is not rich or luxurious. They just looked super awkward when hung. Sadly not for me!2
CurtainsKathyThey are the perfect navy color and the fabric was not to heavy.5
Gorgeous and rich lookingEvelynI got these in dark blue and they are a lovely, deep navy. They are absolutely stunning framing my white-trimmed French doors and newly painted walls in a rich golden ochre. The drape and feel of these is so luxurious for the price. And, they act nearly like blackout curtains, so they block the glare on my TV from the sun, and you can't see inside from outside at night. I will say the hem at the bottom is thin, but I let my drapes pool onto the floor so you can't see it. I don't think these look like Travelodge drapes at all (like I believe one reviewer said) but I also know how to hang even the most inexpensive drapes to make them look classier. I have an oiled bronze colored drapery pole, hung just underneath my crown molding, with 8 ft ceilings. I have 6 of these panels in 55x98 and bought the coordinating slip-in drapery hooks from IKEA. I use oiled bronze colored rings to match the rod. I think this hanging method is a much cleaner look than using the back tabs. Fabulous!!5
A complete disappoinment! Quality has gone down!ShannonI recently purchased a pair of the Sanela Velvet Curtains, what a DISAPPOINTMENT! The quality has gone way down from when I purchased at least 12 pairs of Sanela Velvet Curtains 10 yrs ago ( house had 22 windows) back when the quality was excellent, the velvet plush and thick, beautiful drape, they were the best curtains I've owned. This new pair is thin, lets in more light than before, the velvet was rubbed off in multiple spots from the shipping. Also rubs off when tieing them back. The color is true to online and they are easy to hang. These 2 points are the only reason they are getting a 2 star rating. Would NOT recommend or buy ever again.2
Beautiful curtains!NataliyaHello IKEA visitors! We went to IKEA again and purchased these lovely curtains. Perfect quality. They new that is why for now they look perfect. I hope they are going to be working just good in the future too. We love them.5

Wonderful textureJerilynEasy to hem. Nice fabric5
Dust everywhereJaeThis curtain spreads dust everywhere in our house. Yellow particles come off when touched and it's been irritating us without our knowldege for the past months.1

great curtainsKathleenperfect color and love the fact that they keep light out5
Sanela pink curtainsMaggie W.Used the Sanela pink curtain in our guest bedroom and they look wonderful with the furniture.5
They work a bit too well.AngelaI have a 9' window in the bedroom that faces east. When the sun rises earlier in the day it was very hard to stay asleep. I warned my husband about darkening curtains, but he didn't listen. We've had them up for a couple of weeks now, and he's overslept every day since! Of course you can see the light around the edges of the windows because of our double curtain rod sticking out a bit , but it's dark enough to not worry about being blinded by the sun at 6am every day. We wait until we step into the bathroom for that.5
Love Ikea's 100% cotton velvet drapes "Sanela"NorahIkea's "sanela" are the best velvet curtains on the market. I've bought them many times for all kinds of places/events. I've heard interior designers say this is a 'best kept secret' bc the price is half of what you'd pay anywhere else and the quality is there.5
Beautiful. Please bring 118" in all new colorsSharonThe Sanela curtains are our favorite. We have them in different colors because the 118 inch length works for our home. We were thrilled to see the dark brown color only to see it recently discontinued without being offered in the 118 inch length which we use in our home. Now we see the new white Sanela curtains but they are also not offered in the 118 inch length. Please offer the newer colors in 118 in length as well. It was dissapointing to not be able to purchase the brown color that you discontinued as it is to not be able to purchase the new white color.5
BeautifulNordianGreat quality the best they have5
Beautiful!JennyWe moved into a new place with ceiling to floor windows and these curtains are beautiful! We opted for the track that we can screw onto the ceiling so it’s truly a ceiling to floor curtain and although we had issues with using two small of screws and the weight of the curtains, pulling the track off, the longer screws work great and these curtains are gorgeous. We have the gold ones as well and love them equally.5
Love the colorSofiaI would love to see more colors in this type of fabric, velvet like with more vibrant deep colors definitely would buy… I would love if I could choose the double bekrafta curtain Rod in brass they sell it in other countries but no in California.5
BeautifulTiffanyI have these curtains, or at least the old version, in another room and in another color. So I knew that I would love these. Helps block the sun and keep my bedroom cool. Beautiful color. I do have a cat and his hair does stick to them. But that's a me problem vs a curtain problem.5

Our take on cotton

We use cotton in many of our products, from sofas and cushions to bed linen and mattresses. It is a soft, durable, and renewable fiber that breathes and is good at absorbing moisture. All these great qualities make cotton one of our most important materials, but it isn’t without its challenges, much having to do with conventional farming methods that negatively impact the environment and poor working conditions for farmers. With our size and production volumes, we want to drive change in the cotton industry.

Working together to drive change

Each year, IKEA uses around 0.5 percent of all cotton grown around the world. This may not seem like a lot, but the number is big enough to drive change in the industry. For many years, we have been working with partners and stakeholders globally to transform conventional large-scale cotton farming and set social and environmental standards for cotton production. As an example, we helped set up the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) who runs the world’s largest cotton sustainability programme. BCI exists to make global cotton production better for the people who produce it, better for the environment it grows in and better for the sector’s future. Today, more than 110,000 farmers have adopted more sustainable farming practices within IKEA projects.

Ensuring compliance throughout the value chain

All IKEA products are produced in accordance with the IKEA IWAY Standard, our Supplier Code of Conduct. It sets out the minimum environmental and social standards expected from our suppliers, including compliance with local laws. We do not accept any form of forced labor, child labor or treatments in breach of our supply chain requirements. Our cotton teams across the globe ensure that all cotton used in IKEA products meets the demands of compliance in our supply chain. By having teams on the ground in areas where it has previously been challenging to work responsibly, we can challenge the traditional ways of working and improve the industry. If we discover that we are acting in places where we cannot ensure our requirements are being met, we follow-up on the ground and drive change.


What is cotton?

Cotton is one of the world's most appreciated and used natural fibers. Textiles in cotton are soft, hardwearing and can be washed at high temperatures. They are also good at breathing and absorbing moisture – making them pleasant to wear close to the body. Today at IKEA we use more and more recycled cotton and strive to make sure that all the new cotton we use has been grown and produced with less and less amounts of pesticides, fertilizers and water.

Function solution

Room darkening fabric

The room darkening fabric lets in a small amount of daylight, when it is brighter outside and darkens the room. It prevents glare on TV’s and digital screens. It gives you a strong sense of privacy as people cannot see in day or night. Silhouettes and light indoors are barely perceived.
