Window Shadings

Window Shadings

Unlike any other product on the market today, Silhouette and Nantucket window shadings from Hunter Douglas give you the ability to transform light into gentle, diffused beauty.

Design options

2", 3", and 4" vanes are suspended between two sheer facings. With a full palette of colors and fabrics, that include traditional and textured, these treatments will complement any window in your home.

Lift systems

Choose from Continous Cordloop, the retractable UtraGlide lift system, or PowerRise battery remotes that use either IR (Infrared) or RF (Radio Frequency) and provide convenience and safety.

Light Control

Versatile lighting options to soften and diffuse light or provide room darkening atmospheres can be achieved through tilting the vanes, all while providing UV protections.

Specialty Shapes

Most rectangular windows can be covered in addition to quarter-circle, arch, extended arch, circle, oval, hexagon, octagon, angle, and trapezoids. Click to see available shapes.

Enhanced Child Safety Options

As there are no cords that extend past the window sill, all available lift systems are designed with safety concerns in mind.

Size Limitations

Minimum width 12", maximum width up to 120" (all one blind on a single headrail).
Ralph's notes: Silhouettes are a beautiful choice for windows. With UV protection, the ability to provide a screening while maintaining your view, and to lift the entire covering into a 2-1/2" headrail, why would you choose any other treatment? Check out the Boucle' fabric.

Pirouette® Window Shadings

Pirouette® Window Shadings

Combining the personality of a fabric shade and the ability to control light and privacy, the Pirouette is an extremely innovative product. Horizontal fabric vanes seem to float gracefully while allowing an unobstructed view through the window.

Design options

Two vane sizes, 4" Petite or 5" Grande, complement any decorating style.

Lift systems

Continuous Cordloop, the retractable UtraGlide lift system, or PowerRise battery remotes that use either IR (Infrared) or RF (Radio Frequency) offer convenience and safety.

Light Control

Mounted on a single sheer, light can be diffused or blocked for privacy. Or you can adjust the vanes in any position for variable light control.

Specialty Shapes

Most rectangular windows can be covered in addition to 25 shapes, including quarter-circle, arch, extended arch, circle, oval, hexagon, octagon, angle, and trapezoids. Click to see available shapes.

Enhanced Child Safety Options

As there are no cords that extend past the window sill, all available lift systems are designed with safety concerns in mind.

Size Limitations

Minimum width 12", maximum width up to 120" (all one blind on a single headrail).
Ralph's notes: Pirouettes are not for everyone. You must appreciate the beauty of a Roman Styled shade with the functionality of a blind. Yet, with the ability to cover almost any shape window imaginable, Pirouettes are a designer's dream.

Privacy Sheers

Pirouette® Window Shadings

A sheer fabric with integrated fabric vanes offers a unique combination of a drapery and a vertical. The look of a tailored Drapery and the ability to control the light that enters a room.

Fabric choices

10 different fabrics to control light and privacy. From semi-opaque for room darkening these have the ability to reduce the UV exposure to a room while still maintaining a view. Now available with Drapery fabric to frame the privacy sheer for a more elegant look.

Design options

Choose from tailored or casual headers, with valances available. Modern Drapery fabrics provide consistent looks within the room and coordinate with Roman Style treatments.

Traversing systems

Whether using a traversing wand or a wand/cord combination the shades open and close very smoothly. Also available is a motorized option to be used with a remote control.

Sun Control

When open in the sheer position, the sun's glare and effects are minimized, reducing the UV's by 65%. When tilted the UV reduction can be over 95%.
Ralph's notes: Privacy Sheers make a very elegant statement in a room. Whether over a sliding glass door, or as the focal point on a large window with a view, you cannot beat the attractive beauty this shade adds to a room. The fabric, even though fragile looking, can be ultrasonically cleaned and cleans up beautifully.
