Hunter Douglas Inc.

Company Information: Hunter Douglas has been making window coverings since 1946 when they developed the first lightweight aluminum blind. Hunter Douglas Window Fashions is the leading manufacturer of custom window coverings in North America. They continue to lead the market by introducing state-of-the-art innovative products.

The company boasts an extensive collection of window covering products including blinds, shades, shutters, louvers, and sheers. Since Hunter Douglas is one of the industries most widely recognized brand names among consumers, many retailers choose to carry them. A good number of them even have a Hunter Douglas showroom. If you live near a major city, you will likely find several retailers close to you that carry them. Since the Hunter Douglas brand name is so widely recognized, you may pay a premium for them. However, this can be offset by the piece of mind that comes from going with a well established manufacturer.

For many years, Hunter Douglas Windows has led the industry in creating the highest quality, innovative window coverings for homeowners. Their “celebrated legacy” includes Duette® honeycomb shades, an energy-efficient honeycomb design developed in 1985 in response to the energy crisis; Silhouette® window shadings, introduced in 1991, which set a whole new standard of style and beauty with fabric vanes suspended between two sheer fabric facings. 1994 brought the introduction of Luminette® Privacy Sheers, which offer the beauty of sheers and the privacy of soft draperies. And most recently Alouette® Light Louvers, which combine the architectural beauty of a wood shutter, the soft fabric finish of a shade and the light control and privacy of a traditional blind.
