A warm welcome in a new, expanded fabric offering for Pirouette® window shadings from Hunter Douglas, the leading name in custom window fashions. This window treatment resembles the classic look of a hobbled Roman shade but with 21st-century light control options of a Silhouette.

Blog post 2_Inset-1In a feat of modern engineering exclusive to Hunter Douglas, cascading fabric folds attached to a sheer backing open by contracting into contoured fabric vanes for softened light and enhanced views to the outside through the sheer.
The vanes also flatten for excellent light control and privacy.

Now, the window shadings collection has more than doubled its fabric offering. Customers can choose from shimmering metallics, luxurious tinted sheers, bamboo and flax yarns, cotton, classic linen, satin and the luminescent look of silk – all in a rainbow of on-trend hues. On the green front, the Cotton fabric is made from up to 80 percent recycled yarns.

We are proud to offer this product that so beautifully combines a soft look with excellent light control in new fabrics that will work in any décor, from casual settings to more formal designs.

Countless Choices, Innovative Operation

Blog post 2_Feature-3There are now seven distinct fabrics that come in 65 colors in both semi-opaque and roomdarkening options. There are two vane sizes as well – the 4” Petite and 5” Grande – for windows up to 10-feet wide and 12-feet high. Vanes can be flattened for complete privacy, contoured for a softened light and view through the sheer backing and adjusted anywhere in between for varying degrees of light control and privacy.

Thanks to the Invisi-Lift™ system, the fabric vanes appear to float in the window, providing superior view to the outside.

State-of-the-art lifting systems include the UltraGlide® single retractable cord for a sleek appearance and enhanced child safety and easy, affordable PowerView motorization, which can be integrated into most home automation systems.

Pirouette specialty shapes window shadings are available for trapezoids, ovals, hexagons, octagons and circles. They accentuate and enhance a window’s distinctive shape while providing light control, privacy and energy efficiency.

Superior UV Protection

Pirouette shadings boast high energy-efficiency ratings as well, offering superior protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays, which will eventually fade floors, furniture, upholstery and treasured artwork. When the vanes are open, the sheer backing reduces glare and blocks up to 81 percent of damaging UV rays and provides daytime privacy while still allowing for light and view. When the vanes are closed, the product offers 99 percent protection against UV rays.
