Shades are an incredibly versatile window treatment that provides homeowners with various benefits. Shades offer something for everyone, from controlling the amount of light and heat entering a space to providing privacy. They come in many styles, materials, and textures so that you can find the perfect option for your home. Shades also have excellent insulation properties, which can help keep energy costs down by keeping warm air in during winter and cool air in during summer months. With their numerous advantages, it’s no wonder why shades are becoming more popular among homeowners looking to upgrade their windows.

BOLD DESIGN WITH BEAUTIFUL LIGHT CONTROL
Pirouette® Window Shadings provides a bold and modern alternative to the look and feel of traditional fabric shades.
Pirouette shadings feature softly contoured fabric vanes that magically open and close to give you complete control over your desired degree of light filtration and privacy. Our revolutionary Invisi-Lift™ system allows the vanes to float gracefully on a single sheer backing.
Vanes can be flattened for complete privacy or open to any position to invite incoming light and provide a view of the outside. They block up to 81% of harmful UV rays with the vanes open, and 99% with them closed to help protect your furnishings and extend their life.
Pirouette shadings are available with semi-opaque and room-darkening fabric opacities, two vane sizes, and a wide variety of colors to complement your room’s color palette perfectly. So no matter your style or décor, a striking Pirouette design will work for you.
Pirouette shadings are designed and custom-crafted in the U.S. with the highest quality.
Excellent light control every single time
For over 25 years, Silhouette® Window Shadings have been the leader in light diffusion with specially crafted fabrics that transform harsh sunlight into beautiful ambient light. With no cords or tapes, the sheer facings allow you to view through the vanes to the outside while maintaining a discreet level of privacy.
The brilliantly engineered shadings feature soft, adjustable S-shaped vanes that appear to be floating between two sheer fabrics. Tilt the vanes to achieve your desired level of light and privacy.
Silhouette shadings diffuse intense incoming light and create a soft glow in your home. The white rear sheer obscures the view into your home, providing daytime privacy.
Just as sunscreen protects your skin from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays, Silhouette shadings help protect your room’s interiors and add to the lifespan of your valuable possessions. Depending on your fabric choices, the shadings can filter out up to 88% of the sun’s harmful rays.
Our latest innovation, Silhouette ClearView™ Shadings, maximizes your view with a unique combination of front and back sheers for superior view-through. The Silhouette Duolite® product offers the light-diffusing benefits of a translucent Silhouette shading with an integrated room-darkening roller shade.

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES FOR EXTRAORDINARY COMFORT
Duette® Honeycomb Shades feature the industry’s most expansive selection of fabrics, colors, design options, and operating systems. With their legendary energy efficiency and ability to fit a wide range of specialty window types and shapes, Duette shades offer a custom comfort level.
PIONEER OF DESIGN AND EFFICIENCY
Duette® Honeycomb Shades are the original cellular shades, specifically engineered to provide beauty and energy efficiency at the window in cold and warm climates. Their honeycomb construction traps air in distinct pockets, creating insulation that can help lower your energy consumption and bills.
Duette shades are available in an expansive range of pleat sizes, fabrics, colors, opacities, and textures. Innovative operating systems design options such as Top-Down/Bottom-Up, TrackGlide™, and Duette Duolite® make these shades a top choice for any window, skylight, or even specialty windows shapes like arches, sidelights, and circles.
Duette shades are available in a single-cell design and the industry-leading Duette Architella®, which features a honeycomb within a honeycomb for maximum energy efficiency.
LightLock™, the newest iteration from Duette, is the first to offer 100% total darkness. LightLock uses unique U-shaped side channels overlapping the shades’ front and back. The secret to the room darkening lies within the patent-pending side channel design—which features rows of specially shaped micro-ridges optimized to absorb or deflect all incoming light while preventing the light from seeping into the room.
For doors that need extra insulation the Vertiglide™ operating system is ideal for doors needing extra insulation. It’s designed for vertical applications and uses the same fabrics as your horizontal Duette shades. You can use one shade to cover the entire expanse of a sliding door. Or, cover the door with a split stack Vertiglide shade, with each side of the shade operating independently.
