Fabric and Roller Shades
Solar Shades as a loft window treatment

Solar Shades – an excellent urban or loft window treatment

Thanks to the recent introduction of many new and beautiful solar screen fabrics, roller shades have left the commercial market and become fresh design elements in our homes.  Perfect for rooms with a beautiful view because 1%-30% of that view can be retained dependent upon your light blocking and privacy needs.  The correct color selection will further increase your ability to view the landscape beyond your glass and reduce glare within the room.  We can help you choose the right color, opacity level and weave for your home.

Hunter Douglas Provenance Woven Wood Shade

Shades woven from natural grasses, bamboos, hemps and fibers are a warm and environmentally friendly addition to the shading options available today.  Made by a variety of companies with hundreds of patterns, colors and trim details to choose from, the options seem endless.  Due to the use of natural fibers, this type of shade frequently reacts to changes in humidity and temperature creating a soft and organic affect that cannot be duplicated by more synthetic materials.  Because these fibers are rapidly renewable in most cases, require less chemical processing during the fabrication process and are bio-degradable, the woven wood shade is considered to be one of the “greenest” products on the market.  Come in today and explore these beautiful materials today.
