It's oh so cool and oh so medieval at the same time. Chain link by Cascade Coil Drapery is appropriate as regular drapery (same rules for fullness apply.) It diffuses light but keeps the view and is all the rage at restaurants and hotels. But why not try it at home.

Here's what the company has to say about the shower curtains.
"Sexy and elegant, a Cascade Coil shower curtain provides a stunning contrast to natural elements found in today’s high-end bathrooms and home spas. Cascade Coil fabric is made of interlocking coils of round wire. The fabric flexes in one direction allowing it to gather as it is pulled to the side. Durable and long lasting - it won’t rip or tear.
