Windows have a singular purpose. From a functional perspective, it allows light into a room, but it also gives you a view of the outside world. However, windows need a supporting cast to look attractive. A tall lamp placed strategically. A piece of furniture that changes the feel. Bric-a-brac that adds a personal touch. But the one constant? Attractive, stylish window coverings that bring it all together.



Window Shades That Make Light Dance

Light influences everything in a room, including your own mood. But light is powerful, and to create the right ambiance, it needs to be controlled. For over 25 years, Silhouette Shades have been an industry leader in harnessing natural light and dispersing it exactly the way you want it. The use of specially crafted fabrics ensures the transformation of harsh sunlight into glowing ambient light.
The unique horizontal, S-shaped vanes of Silhouette Shades appear to float between two sheer panels, beautifully dispersing light, and simultaneously providing protection from UV rays. A white rear sheer masks the view into your home, providing privacy during the daytime, even when the vanes are open. With no cords or tapes, the layers give you unobstructed views of the world outside, while maintaining that private retreat you desire.
If, in addition to the light-diffusing benefits of Silhouette Shades, you require room darkening capabilities too, the Duolite system has an independently operated blackout roller shade nestled behind. There’s no better way to have complete control over light and privacy in your home.

Protective Screening

Don’t be deceived into thinking Silhouette Shades only have a decorative purpose. In addition to filtering out the harsh glare of sunlight, the sheers protect your furniture and flooring from the harmful effects of UV radiation. These window blinds can instantly reduce the heat entering the room by up to 25%. And with the vanes fully closed, you can enjoy almost total protection from UV rays, helping prevent your furniture and flooring from fading.

Control Light With A Light Touch
Having beautiful and stylish window coverings will amount to nothing if there are tapes, ropes and other paraphernalia cluttering the space around the blinds. Easy-to-use and stylish operating systems help maintain the clean look and lines of the entire system. There are three operating systems to choose from:

1. PowerView Automation – You need not imagine a world in which window treatments adjust themselves automatically. That’s the beauty of a system that received the Red Dot Design Award in 2018, the most prestigious award in the world of design.



With PowerView Automation, your window blinds will move only when you’ve chosen to schedule them, no matter the time of day or night. You can programme multiple settings by following a few simple steps. These can be operated from home with the Pebble Remote Control, through voice activation when integrated with a smart-home system, or through the Powerview App – if you happen to be out of town.

2. UltraGlide – This innovative operating system consists of either a retractable cord or a soft-touch, ergonomic wand to raise and lower your shades while maintaining a constant cord length at the same time. With no dangling cords to diminish the appearance of your window coverings, you’re left with a clean, stylish look.



3. EasyRise – This operating system consists of a continuous loop that can raise or lower your window blinds by simply pulling on the cord. Pulling it in one direction raises the blinds while pulling it the opposite direction lowers them. This system is perfect for large window treatments.


The Last Word

For lovers of natural light, Silhouette Shades offer a beautiful way to create a relaxed environment in your home. The soft, rotating fabric vanes on these horizontal window blinds gives you the freedom to create a variety of moods. By simply tilting the vanes to suit, the starkest daylight can be gently dispersed, providing a gentle glow that permeates the entire room, while filtering out the worst of the sun’s glare, and the UV rays that accompany it.
