At Window Products, our customers often ask us about the evolution of Hunter Douglas products. In 1991, Hunter Douglas introduced a revolutionary new window treatment that could be operated with precise light control with the vanes suspended between two sheers. These were the Silhouette® Window Shadings. When raised fully, the Silhouette® shading disappeared into the fabric-covered headrail. It was a clean, sleek and modern approach to covering windows, and it is still very popular in the Connecticut area today.
The Advent of Pirouette® Window Shadings
Even with the huge success of Silhouette®, there was still a need to provide a similar product, but with a more sophisticated drape-like look and feel. So, in 1996, Hunter Douglas introduced Pirouette® Window Shadings. Because of the revolutionary Invisi-Lift™ system, the horizontal soft fabric vanes look to be floating gracefully in the window, while providing precise control of the incoming light through the sheer backing. As with Silhouette, the fabric vanes roll up tidily into the fabric-covered headrail. However, with Pirouette® Window Shadings, homeowners could now have the option of an elegant, soft fabric alternative for their window coverings.
