At Hunter Douglas, the difference is in the details. Design Studio fabrics are woven in widths that allow shades to be made up to 96" wide without being interrupted by seams. Every shade offers high quality construction.

   The innovative cording system reduces access to the rear cords for enhanced child safety. This system prevents a loop forming when the shade is lifted by hand from the bottom that would be large enough for young children to become entangled in. Clear rings coordinate with all linings and sheers. Stiff battens provide structure. Batten tunnels are sewn to keep battens from slipping out. And all hems are double-turned for a custom finished look, with bottom hems weighted for a smooth appearance.
