Why Hunter Douglas Pirouette® Window Shadings

Room Makeover TipsAt 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. [Read more…]

Pleated or Honeycomb Shades?

Honeycomb ShadesWe have many customers here in the Southbury area who ask about pleated shades. Designed to give homeowners a lighter option to draperies while maintaining the softness of a fabric window covering, pleated shades have been popular for years. In the early 1980s, “energy efficiency” became the new buzzword in the window treatment industry. Industry leaders such as Hunter Douglas took the idea of pleated shades and created the first Duette® honeycomb shade. With a similar look to pleated shades, the unique honeycomb construction offered built-in insulating factors to keep heat out in the summer and heat in during the winter. Stop by one of our showrooms in Southbury or Branford to see full size displays of our pleated or honeycomb shades. [Read more…]
