Roman shades are a classic window treatment that never goes out of style. Many of our customers throughout the Ft. Myers area love the look of Roman shades from the inside, but don’t like the cords running vertically on the back of the shade or the bulky stack of fabric at the top when they’re raised. A typical Roman shade is made out of fabric and uses a pull cord to raise and lower the shade. Because of the cords, traditional Roman shades are not necessarily child and pet safe, and have some stylistic challenges.
Introducing a Roman shade that Looks Good Both Inside and Out!
Hunter Douglas, the premiere window covering company in the world, took the traditional Roman shade and created Vignette® Modern Roman Shades. These innovative shade rolls, stacks and traverses with no exposed rear cords providing a clean appearance at the window. Take a look at this video to learn more:
