Finding window dressings for every room of your home can be time consuming and difficult. Blinds are a popular choice for their ability to block strong sunshine, while shades are ideal for filtering soft light, but which is better?
That’s no easy question to answer— but what if you didn’t have to choose between blinds or shades?
Welcome an ambient glow while guarding your family and furnishings from harmful UVs and Peeping Toms, with an all-in-one solution.
Our Pirouette shades’ unique design grants you the ultimate combination of style and protection.
These window dressings mimic the personality of a classic fabric shade, with the ability to control light in an entirely new way. Curved vanes suspend almost magically between two specially engineered sheer fabrics. This Invisi-Lift™ system allows the horizontal vanes to open while still having a sheer backing that always diffuses light. In fact, this sheer blocks up to 81% of the sun’s rays when the vanes are open and up to 99% when they are closed.
Best of all, this protection also doubles as a privacy-blocker, as the fabric allows light to filter in, while still preventing glimpses into your space from the outside, even with the vanes open.
No need to sacrifice style for functionality, as these voluptuous vanes take on varying blossoming shapes. Flatten the vanes for a smooth finish, or slightly raise them to create a gentle contoured look.
These Hunter Douglas shades are available in seven distinct fabrics including the reflective Alustra Valencia and a creamy smooth Satin. With over 65 colors to choose from, it’s hard to pick your favorite, but some popular hues are Spring, a stunning olive green, and Storm, a smokey gray.
In addition, this line includes two sized vanes: four inch petite or five inch grande. Read our article to find the right slat size for your room. Pirouette shades are also available in two opacities, semi opaque or room-darkening, for intimate spaces.
These Pirouette shades can be paired with a number of operating systems as well, including Hunter Douglas’ PowerView® Motorization. Visit our Fort Myers showroom to touch the fabrics and see the automation for yourself.
