Our all time favorite product has to be the Pirouette by Hunter Douglas. This luxurious window treatments is made from soft horizontal fabric vanes, attached to a backing made of sheer that are controllable in a way that allows full light control for any exposure.
The Pirouette Shade fabric vanes don’t simply tilt open/close like Silhouettes or any other horizontal blind, they bend inwards towards the room, creating a soft fold of fabric which you can adjust to achieve a clear view out, light diffusion, or full privacy.
Hunter Douglas is the only manufacturer of Pirouette Shades and have elegantly designed this product suitable for almost any setting. The contoured fabric vanes create a dramatic effect of depth to a window treatment unlike any other. The soft sheer behind the vanes diffuse the light in a gentle way, so you can enjoy daylight without experiencing the harsh sun.
The Pirouettes, like most Hunter Douglas products, can roll entirely up into the headrail, to completely clear the window for a full view through, or can be lowered down for full privacy, and then “shifted” open for partial view as well.
The Pirouette Shades are offered in a wide range of bold and vivid colors, and are definitely a decorative window treatment, sure to compliment any existing decor.
Don’t let the sheer of fabric softness of the product fool you regarding it’s efficiency; Sun control analysis done by Hunter Douglas resulted in 99% protection from harmful UV rays when the vanes are closed, and up to 81% when they are open.
The most popular operating systems for the Pirouette include the classic EasyRise cordloop, and the PowerView automation motorized system for an effortless experience of light control.
