ROMAN SHADES

Vignette® Modern Roman Shades

Vignette® Modern Roman Shades feature consistent folds and no exposed rear cords, keeping windows uncluttered and safer. Choose from different fold styles and sizes, and beautiful fabrics that are low maintenance and easy to clean.

Offered in sheer, light-filtering and room-darkening fabric opacities, and a range of styles and fold sizes, these shades are the perfect alternative to the traditional Roman shade.

For two opacities in a single shade, consider the revolutionary Duolite® option. Vignette Duolite combines a light-filtering or sheer front shade with a built-in room-darkening back panel both housed on a single roller to easily achieve the perfect level of light and privacy.

The single roller is unique to the Roman shades category and also allows for less mounting depth than other dual roller systems. The Duolite option is available exclusively in the Rolling Style with 6" flat folds and the convenience of PowerView® Motorization.

All Vignette shades maintain a consistent, full or flat fold appearance and require minimal fabric dressing while being raised or lowered. The durable fabric options are gorgeous and worry-free.

Vignette shades are beautiful, practical and available in two different styles:

1. The Rolling Style features a 4" full fold or 6" flat fold and rolls up into the headrail.

2. The Stacking Style stacks neatly beneath a low-profile headrail for shallow mounting depths and is available in a 4" full fold.

Vignette shades are designed and custom-crafted in the U.S. with the highest level of quality. Best of all, every window treatment from Hunter Douglas is covered by our lifetime limited warranty.

HONEYCOMB/CELLULAR SHADES

Duette® Honeycomb Shades

Duette® Honeycomb Shades are the original cellular shades, specifically engineered to provide beauty and energy efficiency at the window in both cold and warm climates. Their honeycomb construction traps air in distinct pockets, which creates insulation that can help lower your energy consumption and energy bills.

Duette shades are available in an expansive range of pleat sizes, fabrics, colors, opacities and textures. Innovative operating system design options such as Top-Down/Bottom-Up, TrackGlide™ and Duette Duolite® make these shades a top choice for any window, skylight or even specialty window shapes like arches, sidelights and circles.

Duette shades are available in a single-cell design as well as the industry-leading Duette Architella®, which features a honeycomb within a honeycomb for maximum energy efficiency.

LightLock™, the newest iteration from Duette, is the first of its kind to offer 100% total darkness. LightLock uses unique U-shaped side channels that overlap the front and back of the shades. The secret to the total room darkening lies within the patent-pending side channel design—which features rows of specially shaped micro-ridges, optimized to absorb or deflect all incoming light while preventing the light from seeping into the room.

For doors that need extra insulation, the Vertiglide™ operating system is the ideal option. It's designed for vertical applications and uses the same fabrics as your horizontal Duette shades. You can use one shade to cover the entire expanse of a sliding door. Or, cover the door with a split stack Vertiglide shade, with each side of the shade operating independently.
