Our Roman Shade’s light-filtering materials filter light into the room to varying degrees, depending on fabric style and color. A soft glow of light allows for silhouettes close to the window to be seen as shadows, the materials give privacy. In this category, fabrics offer elegant patterns and styles. All fabrics are available in the flat panel or looped panel (tear-drop) style. Light-filtering Roman Shades create a friendly glow and are suited for any room where light, some privacy and elegance is desired.
