Borrowing from Italian designs dating back thousands of years, Roman shades blend timeless style with utility and function.  Roman shades are also great for filtering out noise and light and can cut home energy costs depending on the type of material used to create them. Read on to learn more about the roman shade collections offered by Hunter Douglas.

Vignette® Modern Roman Shades come in a variety of different fold sizes and styles and can be made and installed vertically as well as horizontally to fit any window. For large windows and sliding glass doors, these roman shades can be installed with Vertiglide™. This option allows the shades to be installed horizontally and can traverse the door or window and stacks left, right or in-between. Vignette® Roman Shades have no exposed rear cords and they feature consistent folds, which keeps your windows looking clean and uncluttered. If home energy efficiency is a concern, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades are available in a variation known as Architella®. This version of Vignette® is constructed to trap air, creating a layer of insulation to keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Vignette® Roman shades are also available with the Top-Down/Bottom-Up feature. This offers privacy as well as letting the light in.

Hunter Douglas offers the Alustra® Collection of Vignette®. This line offers the modern, clean look of Vignette® Modern Roman Shades with a designer twist. Featuring rich textures and exclusive fabrics, the Alustra® Collection of Vignette® will turn your windows into a fashion statement.

Design Studio™ Roman shades are available in four different styles and in a wide array of fabrics such as linen, silk and cotton. Design Studio™ Roman shades can be customized with unique trims, tapes and even valances, and are available in two options for light control depending on your personal preference.

Solera® Soft Shades are made using cellular construction, similar to honeycomb shades. This helps to absorb sound and reduce outside noise. The cellular construction allows Solera® Soft shades to be effective at filtering light and blocking light, depending on the fabric used to make them.

All Hunter Douglas roman shade options are available in specialty shapes. They are also all available in three different operating systems: PowerView®, LiteRise®  and Ultraglide®. PowerView® is the latest in motorized operating systems for window treatments. This is a patented system available only through Hunter Douglas that allows you to move or adjust your window treatments simply by pressing a button on your remote control from home or by using your smart device while away. PowerView® can also be preprogramed to move your shades automatically throughout the day according to your preferences.

LiteRise® is also offered exclusively from Hunter Douglas and allows you to adjust your shades quickly and easily without lift cords, for an uncluttered look with reduced safety concerns.

The UltraGlide® operating system features a retractable lift cord. This unique design allows you to open and close your shades with a lift cord, but the length of the lift cord retracts so it always stays the same length.
