FAQs About Specialty Shades

How Pirouette® Window Shades Are Constructed?

The hobbled shade is a type of roman shade with the material draped in the front in a teardrop shape. This is often referred to as a teardrop shade and is a popular shade design. With the construction of the Pirouette® Window Shading, Hunter Douglas has created an updated version of the hobbled shade. Rather than the folded fabric of the hobbled shade, the Pirouette® Window Shading is composed of vanes that are gently contoured to allow light to filter in. The innovative design was constructed to block out destructive UV rays while still providing light and ambiance in the home.
