Get creative with new custom soft Roman shades from The Hunter Douglas Design Studio Collecion. Choose from four distinctive styles, each designed and crafted with Hunter Douglas quality and innovation. Explore the New and Exclusive collection of artfully curated fabrics - sophisticated textures, patterns, stripes, rich solids and sheers. We have added many fabrics with updated colors and designs. Reflect your personal style by adding coordinating valances, tapes and trims, making your windows truly unique. Hunter Douglas Design Studio Roman Shades Redefined.

At Hunter Douglas, the difference is in the details. Design Studio fabrics are woven in widths that allow shades to be made up to 96" wide without being interrupted by seams. Every shade offers high quality construction. Our innovative cording system reduces access to the rear cords for enhanced child safety. Clear rings coordinate with all lining and sheers, stiff battens provide structure, bartender tunnels are sewn to keep battens from slipping out and all hems are double-turned for a custom finished look with bottom hems weighted for a smooth appearance.

 The Roman Shade Styles

Batten Front Roman Shades are characterized by battens or tunnels sewn at regular intervals on the front facing side of the shade. The clean, dimensional lines of this style work well in all environments. When a stripe or pattern fabric is selected, batten front is a great choice because the battens on the front won't interfere with the pattern.

Batten Back Roman Shades have inverted tunnels that create a soft, tailored look when lowered and defined folds when raised. This simple style requires the least amount of dressing when raising or lowering the shade... looking great in any position.

Flat Roman Shades have no horizontal seams or stitching across the face of the shade making them the best choice for showing off large-scaled patterns and striped fabrics. 

Hobbled is a classic style defined by soft fabric folds which cascade from top to bottom. Design Studio Hobbled Shades have a unique, triple-layered fabric construction with a double lining, providing unsurpassed energy efficiency.

Refine Your Style

We recently helped a customer in Plano. Her family room sliding Doors look out onto her pool patio and beyond to a wooded area. She wanted to be able to raise her shades to give her full view of the beautiful spot so we decided the best solution for this project was Design Studio Roman Shades by Hunter Douglas. For ease of operation we selected the PowerView Motorization. She used the Hub and set the shades so that they raise to a certain spot every morning and lower every evening. For an additional touch be added a custom cornice to cover all shades using a textured fabric. This was a solution both the customer and I love.

Let Read Design Southlake or Read Design Plano help you with you next custom window fashion project. Our Designers will be happy to come out to your home and give you ideas. If you are wanting just shades, shutters, blinds or are wanting to add Drapery Panels or Valances and Cornice boards, we will help you find the perfect solution.

Vignette Modern Roman Shade

We recently helped a client in Trophy Club, Texas with the windows in her master bedroom. She wanted a transitional look, clean and simple, but with an element of exquisite design. Her walls were painted a medium, almost dark, gray so we suggested a the versatile Vignette Shade in the White Satin fabric with the top down - bottom up feature. She loved the idea of top down - bottom up shades because these windows were located on the side of her home and faced the street. This was the perfect solution to optimal privacy and light control and how our client says she leaves them in the pictured position all the time because she loves the way it looks. 

Design Studio Roman Shades

Another Hunter Douglas Roman Shade option is the Design Studio. These shades are customized through pattern and texture. Expertly crafted to order, these soft Roman Shades offer elegant window coverings in more than 300 exquisite fabrics - from sophisticated designs, textures and stripes to simple solids in blends of cotton, linen, silk and synthetics. 

Design Studio Roman Shades in North Dallas

We recently helped a couple with the remodel of their North Dallas home. This was a fun and challenging project with a few areas where we really had to give a lot of thought to the windows. In the family room and breakfast room the windows were removed and large sliding doors were installed to give a large open view to their patio. Our client wanted complete privacy at night, but keep the view during the day. Vertical shades were not the look of this home so we considered Luminette Privacy Sheers, but we lacked enough room on the sides to stack the fabric. We finally decided to use Design Studio Roman Shades and layer them with a custom fabric covered cornice board. This was the perfect look and solution for this home! For the shades we used a neutral fabric called Destination in color Ecru and the PowerView Motorized Operating System for convenience and a clean look with no hanging cords. The shades completely cover the doors and can stack all the way up under the cornice as if it is not there at all. Our client prefers the layered look and so has the controls set to stop in her desired position. For the cornice board, we used a textured fabric from Kravet that really tied the room together.

Our customer did love the Luminette Privacy Sheers though and we were able to use one in the upstairs game room. This is also powered by the PowerView Motorized Operating System.
