EVERYBODY likes new things. There’s nothing like breaking into a new pair of jeans for fall, cutting the tags to a new, fancy dress for a wedding, cooking with new stain free pots and pans, putting your hands on the wheel of a new car, or, my favorite, tearing off the lid to a new container of chocolate peanut butter cup ice-cream…or butter pecan…let’s face it, really any flavor will do. If none of these things raised your eyebrows just a little, you should probably stop reading, or go buy something new to experience it for yourself!
Now Premiering in 2017…
We were honored to be able to host our very own Hunter Douglas Premiers night to showcase the newest Hunter Douglas products and line extensions. Katherine Rumbaugh of Hunter Douglas, was kind enough to make the trek all the way from NYC to share with our team and our awesome interior designer friends her expertise. And let me tell you, these products and features are snazzy and can spruce up any room in your home! And because I am so excited about these products, I have condensed the information below for you!
Sonnette Cellular Roller Shades
What do you get when you mash a Honeycomb Shade and a Roman Shade together? The one and only Sonnette Cellular Roller Shade! This window treatment is exclusive to Hunter Douglas and its greatest feature is that it is 100% cordless. Other features include…
- Energy efficient construction
- 4 different fabric collections
- 3 operating systems (LiteRise, PowerView, and SoftTouch)
SoftTouch Motorization is unlike any other operating system. With the touch of your finger to the bottom of the wand, the shades rise. And with a gentle tug down, the shades lower. Simple and smooth, it doesn’t get much cooler than that!
Designer Banded Shades
I am pretty sure the designer banded shades are my new favorite window treatment because they are unique and trendy while offering a lot of beneficial features. Just look at the picture…How cool is that? They are available in multiple fabric collections of varying colors, textures, and patterns as well as fun geometric shapes! Other features include…
- variety of operating systems
- fabric wrapped cassette and bottom bar providing optimal privacy and light control
- small, medium, and large band height for desired view through
- light filtering and room darkening opacity options
PowerView Motorization Design
Our clients love PowerView Motorization for the convenience and simplicity it provides in their home. The new design of the hub not only looks nicer and more natural, it also works better with improved voice recognition. Other features include…
- new, sleek design of PowerView Repeater
- inclusion in Scenes
- Illumination feature
- New design of app on smart phones
- 3 new colors of PowerView Pebble (Oyster, Ecru, Mist)
Many of the Hunter Douglas Products also had improvements made to their design as well as added features.
