Colour meets texture, texture meets colour and light gives them both a warm welcome in a new, expanded fabric offering for Pirouette® window shadings from Hunter Douglas. This window treatment resembles the classic look of a hobbled Roman shade but with 21st-century light control options.
In 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 doubled. There are seven fabrics, five new, in a rainbow of 65 on-trend hues in semi-opaque or room-darkening options as well as refreshed colours for the existing Satin and Linen fabrics.
New fabrics include:
- Satin Metallic, shimmering metallic fabric for modern style
- Cotton, highly textured fabric made from up to 80% recycled yarns
- Angelica, luxurious tinted sheers on both the front and back
- Shantung, the look and feel of raw silk in rich, bold hues
- Bamboo Flax combining bamboo and flax yarns and exuding natural simplicity
Hunter Douglas 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 a significant amount of the sun’s damaging UV rays and provides daytime privacy while still allowing for light and view. When the vanes are closed, the product offers almost complete protection against UV rays.
