design&decor A graceful spin on a classic fabric shade Decorating today is more about enhancing one’s own standard of living than keeping up with the Joneses, yet it seems all eyes are still on the window. Media rooms require room darkening window fashions, while the expansive views so coveted by today’s homeowners pose a different set of challenges. The personality of a window shading has been enhanced with a totally new concept in light control: Pirouette® window shadings from Hunter Douglas, the leading name in custom window fashions. Featuring soft adjustable horizontal fabric vanes attached to a single sheer backing, proprietary Pirouette® window shadings control light in an entirely new way. With the gentle pull of the operating cord, textured fabric in a palette of delightful colours transforms from what appears to be cascading folds to contoured vanes, allowing an enhanced outside view through the sheer backing. More specifically, when opened, the top and bottom of each vane shift closer together in the back, creating a soft outward fold and allowing light to filter gently through the fabric sheer and offering a softened view of the outside. When closed, the vanes slide into a flattened position for excellent light blockage and a smooth look similar to that of a classic Roman shade. Vanes can also

Innovative Operation, Countless Choices The Invisi-Lift™ system is at the heart of Pirouette® shadings, allowing the horizontal fabric vanes to float elegantly and providing unobstructed views or complete privacy all in one. Available in two vane sizes – 4” Petite and 5” Grande – and for windows up to 10-feet wide by 12-feet high, Pirouette® window shadings are ideal for homeowners who have beautiful views

Pirouette® window shadings boast high energyefficiency ratings while also offering superior protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays, which will eventually fade floors, furniture, upholstery and treasured artwork. While still allowing for a softened outside view and gentle light filtration, the sheer backing reduces a significant amount of glare and damaging UV rays when the vanes are open. When the vanes are closed, the product offers almost complete protection against UV rays.

Operation There are a variety of lifting systems, including the UltraGlide® single retractable cord system and battery-powered PowerRise 2.1 motorization, which can be operated from mobile devices with the award-wining Platinum™ App. Pirouette® window shadings are backed by the exclusive Hunter Douglas Guarantee.
