Honeycomb shades have been around for over 30 years and continue to be one of the most popular products on the market. They offer excellent insulation and light and privacy control. And this year, Hunter Douglas has added updates to their line of honeycomb shades that make them even more appealing. Talk to a trained professional at Ross Howard Designs here in Dallas to determine if Duette® Honeycomb Shades are right for you.
Honeycomb Shade Updates
Duette Honeycomb shades are sleek and modern, but they are flexible enough to work well in a traditional setting. What makes them better is this year’s updates from Hunter Douglas, which offer a streamlined appearance, enhanced child and pet safety, and more. Here are just a few things that are new:
- NEW UltraGlide® Wand – This child-safe, retractable cord system has a newly designed decorative wand/tassel. The new wand is refined to coordinate with the rail color and beautifully accent any décor
- NEW Fabrics and Colors – New to the fabric roster are three striking offerings, including Northwood, which has a rustic charm and clean modern lines; Alexa, which has an organic feel; and a new exclusive Alustra® Duette® Architella® fabric called Jardin. This fabric is created from textured yarns for that casual-chic look. The Duette honeycomb shade line has a total of 39 fabrics with over 420 colors
- NEW Honeycomb Shaped Headrail – The newly redesigned headrail now reflects the honeycomb fabric shape. This design allows the eye to follow the honeycomb design from the top of the shade to the bottom. Rails are textured and matte-finished and will color-coordinate with the shade fabric
New Vertiglide Honeycomb Shade With PowerView
Hunter Douglas turned the Duette fabric 90 degrees to create a vertical honeycomb solution—the Vertiglide™ option, which is ideal for sliding glass doors and large windows. New this year is the addition of PowerView™ Motorization, which has won numerous awards, such as the coveted Red Dot Award for 2016. The award honors design innovation and is recognized internationally. With more than 17,000 entries, Red Dot is one of the largest competitions in the world.
