Zona began her business in 1981 after her family moved to the Des Moines metro area from her hometown. Before moving to Des Moines she worked in a furniture store workroom for 9 months, where she learned how to make custom pleated drapes, which was the trend back then. Patterns for swags and Kingstons weren’t available to her back then, so she self-taught herself to draft patterns for top treatments. Zona later added upholstery and slipcovers to her repertoire.
Her business has evolved over the years, starting out to the trade only, then retail, now back to mainly to the trade again. She has had up to 3 employees working with her and also her husband as an installer, but now it’s just her, which she prefers.
Zona’s Drapery House is an award-winning workroom. Zona has taught at many of the conferences available for workrooms. She was an instructor at the Custom Home Academy. She is a member of WCAA and served on the board. You can find her at www.zonasdraperyhouse-desmoines.com
