These rods arrived very quick, were well wrapped for shipping, and are exactly as pictured on the website: smooth, correct length, nicely stained. Pleased with the whole experience.
It's been almost a year that I have been trying (and failing) to find well made, STRAIGHT, black wooden poles in the proper lengths for my great room curtains. I generally prefer to shop local when I can, but after an exhaustive search and having to return product that was visibly warped, I finally decided to take a chance with an online order. I'm so glad I found Curtain Rod Connection! I called the office and spoke with a wonderful gentleman who assured me that the Kirsch rods were very true, but that I could put a note on the order form to be sure that the rods were checked prior to shipping and that the warehouse guys would follow through. My order was shipped quickly (that same day!) and when it arrived...the poles were perfect! I'm extremely happy with the results and will absolutely be ordering again when I'm ready to start on other rooms.
