What are Pirouette shades?
Pirouette Window Shadings is a modern alternative to fabric shades — clean lines, graceful effect, and elegant design.
- Soft, horizontal fabric vanes attached to a single sheer backing.
- Sheer backing allows for enhanced outside views.
- You have the full beauty of the fabric appear on the inside.
- Available in light-filtering and room-darkening opacities
A picture will imprint this design idea in your mind. So, let’s take a look.
All in all, you have a face-fabric and a sheer rear fabric, and the two fabrics interlace using a unique design.
Let’s discuss that next.
How do you open the face fabric to allow view through the sheer fabric?
The answer is the innovative design — invisible strings. The innovative Invisi-Lift™ system suspends the soft vanes.
The beauty of innovation – Invisi-Lift™ strings — is woven into the fabrics such that they disappear into the sheer fabric backing.
You lower the shade fully, open the face fabric to form vanes, and allow view-through the sheer fabric.
You can raise the shade completely into the headrail for the unobstructed view.
Invisible strings uplifting the decor is a stretch of the imagination. How can you do that?
“It always seems impossible until it’s done,”.
Still, your alter ego may say how can strings be not seen and still uplift.
The invisible string system consists of clear strands that operate the horizontal fabric vanes.
Watch for yourself
How can I get view-through and privacy from Pirouette Window Shadings?
You have a shading with beautiful fabric vanes that float in the window on a single back sheer.
The vanes float — no obstructing cords or tapes hinder your view-through. Beautiful fabrics curate your privacy and offer dramatic softness.
Achieve Perfect View-Through
You open the vanes to provide an unrestricted view to the outside through the sheer.
Invisi-Lift system opens and closes the fabric vanes without obstructing views.
