Custom Window Treatment for Arched Windows Needed!

October 29th, 2010

October 29th, 2010

A repeat commercial customer called us back this week to help them control the sun in their historic building with arched windows that are difficult to treat.  To meet the needs of the historical society, we needed a low-key treatment, barely visible from the street.  With support from a metal fabricator and access to raw shade materials, we bent frames custom to each 7’ wide brick arch and stretched the shade material neatly around them.  Installation with an inconspicuous l-bracket system and some foam gasket created a custom solution that is barely visible from the inside or outside of the building.  95% of the light is removed from the windows yet a view of the city skyline is still retained.  That is custom!  That is what we love to do!

Commercial Blinds & Sheers for more St. Louis Office Space!

October 1st, 2010

October 1st, 2010

72 Levolor Riviera horizontal blinds hung without a hitch this week.  No commercial job is too big or small.

Delivered more ADO sheers to a commercial banquet facility on Locust.  These beautiful fire retardant sheers soften the view of the city and reduce glare during the day.  The building owner loves them for their machine washability.  ADO has many different patterns and colors.  Let us bring them to your facility for a demonstration.

Our workroom completed a Shiloh reupholstery project this week.  One piece of furniture, a small bench detracted from the overall design of the great room.  2 yards of upholstery fabric and 2 weeks later the design challenge is solved!  Check out hundreds of current designer upholstery fabrics in our Belleville window treatment gallery

Hunter Douglas Architella Shades eligible for Energy Star Tax Credit until 12-31-10 through Eye on Design

July 30th, 2010

July 30th, 2010

Commercial flame retardant black-out drapery 25’ above the ground?  Sure we can do that too.  We did it this week in Chesterfield, MO.

Custom residential tile backsplash design and installation?  Yes, we do that too.  This week in O’Fallon, IL.

Here is a warning for all of you out there looking to take advantage of the 2009/2010 energy star tax credit before it expires December 31st…..it has come to my attention that many of our competitors are claiming that their products meet the strict requirements necessary to earn homeowners the 30% credit on the material costs.  If they cannot produce the paperwork necessary for you to file for your tax credit then it is likely that their statement is not true.  Only Hunter Douglas and Comfortex have been granted energy star ratings for particular products  – talk to a window treatment professional today and ask to see the documentation.
