Great news! We have added a new product to our website which brings and improved design. Pleated shades in general are popular. One of their draw backs however has always been that you have visible cords running through visible holes that hold the shade in place. These holes make for little light leaks as well as compromised privacy. Well, not anymore.
Comfortex has come out with the New Privada NoHoles Pleated shade, also referred to as Privacy Pleated Shade, which eliminates the traditional routeholes. Strings are routed through an innovative tab in the back of the shade. So once the product is installed, it actually looks like a honeycomb shade without the honeycomb design.
Privada Pleated Shades come in 5 fabrics, 3 light-filtering and 2 room-darkening. They include solid fabrics, a linen inspired material in texture and feel as well as a textured print. Light-filtering materials are always great for open living spaces, where light is welcome; this includes family rooms, kitchen areas, living areas etc. Here there material will give privacy, take the edge of bright light while filtering day light into your room. The room darkening materials are great for bedrooms or living spaces with media centers.
The standard lifting system for a Privada shade is the traditional cord, but continuous cord can be added for larger windows, to give support through a clutch. A cordless lift or top down bottom up are popular features that are available options as well.
For all the solid colors we currently have fabric samples available to mail out. Please feel free to browse our online selection and call us with any questions you might have.
