The Pirouette: A Window Shade with the Wow Factor

We offer so many great products, it’s hard to pick one that’s our favorite. But, here we are…picking the Pirouette shade. You can’t blame us once you’ve seen it for yourself! The view-through is instantly impressive and so is the range of light control. Let’s take a look into this great product in some more detail.

The Pirouette Point of View

In 2020 the “Clearview”, or also called the enhanced view, is available for the Pirouette shade collection. There is a more clear and crisp view of the outside with the Clearview®. The black sheer fabric is the secret behind this new look.

In the picture above you’ll see the left side is Clearview and the right is the original sheer backing. The original look gives a diffused softness that is calming and peaceful, while the new Clearview gives a sharp view. Do you have a preference? We’re asking because both help with light control, and it’s hard for us to pick!

Keeping it Coordinated

We understand with open concept layouts it’s a concern to have all window treatments coordinated. This is especially true when windows and doors are involved in one room. You want them all to look great together, as well as function on their own.

We offer amazing product lines that will be able to cater to your home’s style and function–all at the same time. The benefits include UV protection at an impressive 81% with sheers in place and 99% when the vanes are closed.

Large Windows Are a Cinch!

It shouldn’t be a surprise why Pirouette shades are such a popular choice for large windows. They give an impressive backdrop that will transform any room to complete sophistication. By slightly adjusting the vanes, you can go from soft, filtered light to complete darkness in a second.

If that’s not enough to love the Pirouette shade, consider the element of size. These shades can handle up to 144 inches by 144 inches! This allows them to be a great source of coverage for floor to ceiling windows. If you have an area that is larger than 12 feet wide, you can use multiple shades, with a minimal gap, making it look almost seamless.

Convenient Operating Systems

Our clients love smart shades. It’s a one touch control operating system, whether you’re using a remote, or your smartphone. They can also be adjusted with voice control, or on a schedule. These shades can also be motorized with wand control by the SoftTouch™ system.

Prefer a cord? There are two different options for these window coverings, that are also child-safe. Ultraguide is a retractable, short cord, and EasyRise has a cord loop fastened inside the window’s frame.
