Styles & Mechanisms

Roman Shade

As a shade is lifted from the bottom it forms soft folds that will fit under the valance when completely raised. Cordlock lift system is standard with Roman Fold Shades.

Roman Rollease

A clutch mechanism and continuous pull chain makes it easier to lift larger shades and prevents cords from tangling.

Old Style Roman

Shade is mounted on front of headrail without a valance, for a clean look. Lift system operates from back of shade with cords or chain hidden.

Top Down Bottom Up

Shade can be raised from the bottom, or lowered from the top, letting light in from the outside while maintaining privacy.

Multiple Shades, 1 Headrail

An option for wide openings is to divide the width into two or three individual shades mounted on one headrail with a 1/4″ gap between each shade and a continuous valance. Maximum total width 120.” (No extra charge; priced as 2 or 3 separate shades)

Motorized Shades

Adding a motor provides the convenience of operating shades with a remote control or a wall switch. Minimum headrail width for motorization is 28″W.

Arched Top

Stationary arches can be custom made for arched windows using customer supplied templates. Choose solid or translucent styles. Available as part of the valance or as a stand alone.

Angle Top

Windows with angle tops can have custom made shades to fit customer supplied measurements.

Roller Shade

Shade rolls around roller from the top and hides behind the valance. Clutch is operated by a continuous loop chain. Standard 1” width deduction for RollEase mechanism. Not available with lining. Not available in ARTISAN Leather.

Edge Binding

Fabric bindings give woven woods shades a custom look. Choose from 6 complementary colors, or supply your own factory approved fabric.

Roman Ribs

Pleats are moved to the front of this roman shade and filled with thin metal dowels to add structure and weight. Excellent shade style for lighter weight patterns. Not available in ARTISAN Leather.

Cascada Fold

Retain the beauty of overlaying folds when the shade is raised. Instead of folding completely under the valance, as with Roman Fold, the cascading folds remain visible.

Panel Track

Fixed panels are mounted on a track system for ease of control on larger windows. Not available in ARTISAN Leather.

Hobbled Shade

Retain the beauty of overlaying folds even when the shade is lowered. (Standard Roman Fold is flat when shade is lowered).
