Good Questions: Hanging Curtains in an Odd Space?

I am trying to hang curtains in my bedroom, but am having trouble figuring out where to attach the curtain rod. The room is measures 107" from wall-to-wall. There is only parallel wall space on one side of the windows though. On the other side, the window connects directly to the adjoining wall. I would consider a tension bar if it was sturdy enough, however I haven't seen one. I have also seen cable systems, but would think they would sag. The curtains I am hanging are 84" panels from West Elm. Advice? Are there any good curtain rods that I can hang from the ceiling? I see Sears.com has ring brackets that can hang from the ceiling, would just need to purchase the rod separately. Any other good suggestions? Thanks. Brendan

We've used a tension cable from IKEA before — as long as you have light-weight curtains it works very well. If you are worried about sagging, you should add additional pieces to hold more weight — DIGNITET.

Anyone else?
