High Fashion Blinds

Our industry is similar to wearing apparel, we both furnish function & fashion. Our function aspect is in privacy, light-control & mobility. The fashion is found in . . . FABRIC! Beautiful colors, patterns, textures, unique-effects, and that’s just the material. Add in the treatment styles: classic drapes, upholstered cornices, roman shades, swags, pillows, bedspreads and more. New fabric offerings are now arriving.

 

Here are some of the new fabric highlights:

Modern Library

embroidery fabrics

Contemporary Embroideries – a soft background with intricately designed feathers, flowers & geometrics

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New decorating plans for the fall? You can’t be too early, but you might be too late. Book now as we don’t control fabric inventory or workroom backlog.

Blind Evolvement

When we started (1976), the blind & shade category was tiny compared to now. Hot blinds were 1″mini & ½”micro (dusting?), fabric or vinyl verticals & roller shades (not reliable). Cellular & pleated shades were 9 years away, and the plethora of today’s shadings hadn’t been imagined. 2″ Venetian blinds were out-of-fashion. Coming full circle are those 2″ blinds. Nanik was the best & at the forefront of the rebirth of wood blinds. Graber/SWF eventually acquired Nanik. We’re proud to carry the Graber line of wood horizontal & vertical blinds. Now things get better. We’ve just brought on new horizontal blinds by Coulisse.
