Hunter Douglas Solera® Soft Shades for traditional Roman look with cellular innovation near Tacoma, Washington.

Signature Look

Sometimes, not even the most elaborate of decorations can beat the true, classic look of the original. This is true with the Hunter Douglas Solera® Soft Shades. On the exterior, these window coverings exude the signature appeal of classic Roman Shades. With their fluid and unique appearance, they add a strikingly soft ambiance to your home. The Solera collection is full of luxuriously woven and non-woven fabrics, colors, textures, and fabrics. Use these shades as a simple background or a luxurious addition, whatever suits your mood!

They Pay Themselves Off

The constant energy conservation of the Hunter Douglas Solera® Soft Shades makes them one of the most cost-effective window treatments on the market. While traditionally Romanesque on the outside, they are cellularly constructed internally, meaning they are highly insulative. This cellular blueprint traps air in pockets, helping to control the temperature of your home so your air conditioner and heater won't have to! By insulating your home, these shades are always reducing your bills, practically playing themselves off by the end of their lifetime!

Total Light Control

To add to their sustainability, their top-down/bottom-up design makes their versatility one of their strongest features. This specific design gives you access to naturally filtered sunlight one moment and complete, blackout darkness the next! Depending on the desired ambiance of your home, you can choose a range of opacities varying from light filtering to ideally room darkening.
