Today’s Window Treatments are Class Acts
By Darla Zorn – Owner/Founder – Express Blinds

Called on to perform a myriad of functions within our homes, window treatments are class acts to be sure. In fact, we view individual window treatments as actors on your home’s very own stage. Designed to complement each and every room in your home, well designed window treatments will accentuate your room’s décor, they provide just the right amount of personal privacy, they blend light from outside your home with light from within your home to strike a perfect balance, and they also provide energy efficiency and savings.

With the pandemic in the rear view mirror, and friends and family visiting as before, perhaps it’s time to restage your home’s window treatments as you welcome new and more frequent guests into your home. With you as director, your home as the stage and your window treatments as actors, now is the time to create that showcase quality look that you’ve been dreaming of.

Last month we directed our lights to a different actor, the amazing and versatile honeycomb shade. In this issue of East Tennessee’s Mountain Views, we will introduce you to another exciting and equally rising star, the natural woven shade. Crafted from exotic organic fibers from jute to rattan and bamboo to wood, natural woven wood shades offer global texture to compliment our mist shrouded, rolling, Tennessee countrysides, mountains and pristine Lake Tellico shorelines. And these same fibers are designed to perfectly accentuate the décor within our homes as well.

From harvest to fabrication, focus on up to 20 artisans handcrafting each shade. Meticulously hand-fed on a loom by skilled artisans using man-made yarns spun from natural by-products. Picture their enduring quality by examining the intricate details such as hand-sewn rings stitched right into the weave and handsome sewn-edge binding options that add a finished flair.

Observe as the incomparably variegated textures and hues of naturally processed fibers, become the hallmark of each and every one of your natural woven shades.

Select your colors and fabrics. Choose from light-filtering grasses, reeds, papyrus, and bamboo woven by artisans which exhibit all the perfect imperfections. Revel in the rich hues that only nature can capture, offering an organic, sophisticated style. And be bold. Venture into an exotic twist by adding a pigmented stain option.

Next, set the stage by selecting from a variety of motorized and cordless options to create the proper balance between beautiful form and beautiful function, and to ensure a safe and serene environment.

And don’t forget those added touches of class, including top-down/bottom-up option, fixed liners and more.
