Determining the shade that will be most appropriate for your needs is based on technical factors, interior design principles, and ultimately our client’s personal style.

Hand-made shades will offer some of the most in depth design options for customers who desire the finest fabrics.
Duette® Honeycombs shades mesh well with nearly any decorating style and interior architecture. The horizontal, crisp ridges add a subtle three-dimensionality to windows and gently play with interior and exterior light sources. Honeycomb shades boast a wide array of texture and color choices, from the demure to the bold so they can have a starring role in your room or play a supporting role.
The Hunter Douglas honeycomb window shades don’t just add a striking, distinct design statement to any room of your home, though. They also offer exceptional insulating properties for homes looking to boost their energy efficiency. Every honeycomb shade is specially crafted with air pocket pleats that trap heat and cool air. With refined elegance and superior performance, our custom honeycomb window shades offer the ideal balance of form and function for any Philly home.
Roman shades are soft and elegant in appearance and offer an opportunity to showcase unique and wonderful fabrics while shading your windows. Their soft folds and pleats highlight the beauty of the woven textileswhether the shade is down or up. The wide variety of pleat types we can produce can also play with interior lighting in exciting ways, by layering patterns and adding a rich three-dimensional depth to the window.
With their contemporary, sophisticated design, Roman shades are among the most versatile types of window shades available for Philadelphia homes and can be crafted from a variety of materials — including cotton, silk, linen and other fine fabrics — to fit any aesthetic or budget. Roman shades can be light and airy, or they can be crafted with heavy, dark fabrics to block light. Roman shades add an appealing visual dynamic and texture to any space in your home, bringing energy to kitchens, master bathrooms and living rooms and creating intricate, formal designs when paired with drapes or curtains.
Whether using a motorized or manual operating mechanism, the client has maximum discretion when controlling the amount of light which is allowed to pass through. The contemporary design features beautiful curves to create warm, calm ambient lighting throughout your bedroom, office or living room. Additionally, with the advanced light transforming vanes backed with room darkening fabric, you can reduce harsh glares. These shades also allow for soft, dimming natural light to flow into a room so energy consumption can stay at a minimum. Not only can light be controlled, but temperature can be regulated as well with the Silhouette coverings.
With a revolutionary design incorporating horizontal fabric vanes and sheer backing, the Pirouette® window shadings from Hunter Douglas have reimagined the visual appeal of window treatments and how they can best control natural lighting. With both light filtering and room darkening fabrics, the Pirouette® window shades offer versatile light control and superior privacy at home. They offer a high level of supreme UV protection from the sun whether open or closed. A family favorite, they can be operated by cordless motorization, a cordless manual lift, or by a stabilized cord system which keeps children and pets safe and give adults a sense of relief.
Our collection of roller shades and solar roller shades offer excellent light control while providing a clean, modern look in a wide range of fabrics and materials. While lowered over the window, Solar Shades create a soft light for your Philadelphia home. They also allow the viewer to see through the solar screen shade fabric to observe the outside world — while still blocking the majority of UV rays and sun glare that can damage your fine fabrics and furnishings after prolonged exposure.
Luminette® Privacy Sheers are an exceptional choice for large window expanses, sidelights, and sliding doors, which will provide you with bright stunning views, complete serene privacy, and everything in between. While not only superiorly useful for diminishing sun glares, diffusing light for a wondrous indoor glow, and offering an element of privacy, these vertical window options are a breathtaking choice that stir visual interest in any room.

Woven Wood Shades add natural beauty creating a design story of light, texture, and color for every window in your home. The warm organic materials — grass, bamboo, wood and reeds — add a calming aesthetic to any type of room, allowing peeks of light to dance along the walls and floors of your space. These simple fibers are carefully intertwined together with specialized techniques to create a shade with integral strength and lasting quality. To add more diversity and texture to your woven wood shades, create a layered look using curtains.
