Stacking Romans

Traditional roman shades consists of fabrics, when set to open, they create stacks of folded layers at the top of the window. When the shades are closed, these fabrics unfold, cascading down for privacy. The evolution of modern style has innovated within the Hunter Douglas collection–Vignette Modern Roman Shade is a contemporary take on an old time favorite with sleek and structured folds to add to a modern vibe.

Rolling Romans

As you begin your home’s window covering journey, take note of rolling roman shades. A first cousin to traditional Romans, they differ in their operation. Instead of stacking in folds as the shades rise, the fabric rolls up and is hidden in the headrail.
