Roman Shade Styles Defined
There are so many styles and choices available when it comes to dressing your windows using Roman shades. If you want a traditional, casual or contemporary look, there is sure to be a design available as well as an abundance of fabrics and trim choices to choose from.
Our diverse selection of Roman shade styles combines the look of a soft drapery with the functionality of a shade in a variety of design options.
Shown here on our Design Studio™ Roman Shades, battens, or tunnels, are sewn at regular intervals on the face side of the shade. This style is especially well-suited for stripes and patterns since the battens on the front won’t interfere with the pattern.
Also available on our Design Studio window treatments, these battens are inverted, creating a soft, tailored look when lowered and defined folds when raised. This style looks best in solids or subtle patterns and textures.
Shown here on a Provenance® Woven Wood Shade, hobble shades are a traditional Roman shade style defined by soft fabric folds that cascade from top to bottom.
Ideal for showing off the large-scale, bold patterns and stripes of our Provenance shades, for example, the flat fold has no horizontal seams or stitching across the face of the fabric creating a clean, smooth, finished look.
Featured here are soft, billowy, contoured folds with a modern twist from Vignette® Modern Roman Shades. With no exposed, dangling or pooling lift cords, they are a good choice for enhanced child and pet safety at the window. These shades have a smooth, uniform backing so they look as beautifully finished from the outside of your home as they do from within.
The flat, crisp, contemporary tailored fold available with Vignette Modern Roman Shades features a streamlined look for more casual or contemporary settings and comes with the same enhanced safety and outside-backing characteristics as the Vignette Traditional fold style.
Air pockets within Vignette Tiered™ Architella® shades trap air, creating an extra layer of insulation against heat, cold and outside noise for enhanced energy efficiency and sound absorption.
