Honeycomb Shades

If you look at them on an angle, from the side, you will see a pattern that looks like a honeycomb. They are designed with this geometry to be easy to widen and constrict to fit the length of a window. It can be confusing because honeycomb shades are also known by other names – like cellular shades or cellular blinds.

In 1985, Hunter Douglas were the first to invent the highly energy-efficient Duette® honeycomb shades in response to the energy crisis of the late 1970s. Since then, they’ve introduced Duette Architella® honeycomb shades, which offer an even greater energy efficiency thanks to their patented honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb construction, and Vignette® Tiered Architella Shades, which feature rear fabric air pockets that trap air and create an extra layer of insulation.

Depending on the type of fabric used, honeycomb shades can filter or block light. When they are pulled up to allow light in, these shades show off one of their best features – the ability to fold up very small to let the maximum amount of light into the room.

Roman shades are also sometimes known as roman blinds.

There are several variations of the roman shade, which can make it confusing to talk about them as a single group. You will notice the common feature to all shades and blinds in this category is the folding panels.
