Explore Geometric Patterns

Designer Banded Shades are among the recent innovations in window treatments. Not only do they roll up, but they also have a unique rotating feature. With two layers of fabric, these shades can be shifted when lowered, transitioning from sheer shapes to solid fabrics, providing customizable privacy and light control. An added bonus is that when you want to enjoy an unobstructed view, simply roll them up and out of the way!

Say Hello to Cellular Shades

Typically, energy efficiency isn’t the primary benefit that comes to mind when discussing the different types of roller shades. While they can effectively block the sun, the idea of insulation is probably not at the top of your mind. However, with Sonnette Cellular Roller Shades, this is now possible. The unique honeycomb cells within the shades can flatten and roll into the headrail, making them virtually invisible. When you need to insulate your home, simply lower the shades into place for maximum insulation benefits.
