The Shade Store

June 6, 2007

I’m not sure if you caught this recently over on Apartment Therapy, but when I read about The Shade Store on AT, I immediately ordered a catalog and I’ve been drooling, and trying to decide what I want, ever since. Love. It. I usually head straight over to American Blinds and Wallpaper or Smith & Noble when I need customized blinds and shades, but I’m open to trying new things, especially when they look this hot. Too bad they don’t sell the entire room because I think this sofa is darling.

With gorgeous window shades, blinds, drapery, accessories, and designer hardware, they also have these really sleek, modern panel systems that caught my eye because they glide smoothly on a track system and are perfect for large windows and doors. I’m not a fan of the standard glass sliding doors with vinyl frames, but since they’re still everywhere in homes across America, I meet a lot of homeowners looking for modern solutions for dressing them up without sacrificing daylight or style. I think these panel systems are perfect because you can select from an extensive array of fabrics or woven wood materials, and since they lay flush against the wall when closed, they almost resemble wallpaper, don’t you think?

    The Shade Store has some fantastic stuff! I’m wondering if someone has a suggestion for finding washable shades for kitchen use. I’m not particular about the style of shade but feel that having something that is washable is essential for kitchen use. Any ideas? Thank you!

    Just this morning I was complaining about our sliding closet doors. Too heavy,always jumping off the track and just plain U.G.L.Y.
    Thanks for the Shade Store source.
    Holly, you are always “on track”.

    A panel system almost identical to that is also available at IKEA now.
