Duette, the original honeycomb shade. Designed by Hunter Douglas for superior energy efficiency. Smart design in crisp, neat pleats, the Duette innovative honeycomb construction creates air pockets where light meets color. Raising and lowering from top or bottom to suit the day and your activities, our Duette honeycomb shades are an attractive, classic choice available in an impressive range of fabrics, pleat sizes, colors, and textures. They can also be made in specialty shapes and with any of the Hunter Douglas lift systems including UltraGlide and the new PowerView Motorization.
Honeycomb shades are very popular here in Texas. Their cellular construction traps hot or cold air at the window making them very energy efficient and they provide much protection against harmful UV rays.
Exclusive fabrics, energy-saving innovations. Hunter Douglas’ state of the art patented design for these attractive shades incorporates three insulating air pockets reducing heat loss at the window by 40%. Duette Architella honeycomb shades offer luminous colors and crisp, consistent pleats. Lower them for privacy or raise completely for maximum light and view, they are beautiful either way. Also, consider our Architella Trielle Elan shades. Their five insulating air pockets make them our most energy-efficient design yet. In Dallas, whether it is winter or summer, insulating Duette Architella Trielle honeycomb shades help you conserve energy at the window. The numbers speak for themselves. The benefits of Architella Trielle Shades aren’t just the energy-efficient function. Their form is also dramatically beautiful.
Hunter Douglas has also created the Duolite feature which is two shades in one using two separate fabric panels to provide maximum light control. Today, Duolite gives you the ability to control light and privacy with the ease of two products in one. See the video of how the incredible shades work.
A Duette Installation
We recently helped a customer who came into our Southlake store. She had just moved into a new home in Grapevine, Texas and needed help with the windows in her Family and Breakfast Rooms. These windows face west and there is a large 2 story home behind her. So we selected the Duette Architella Shade in the Elan fabric (Daisy White color) with the UltraGlide lift system. And because she has an open concept design, we used the same shades for all windows. She also wanted to maximize control of the light at different times during the day. So we added the Top Down/Bottom Up feature and it did the trick. The Architella Shades were a perfect solution for her soft contemporary look.
The next step was adding Draperies and Curtains. Here we selected one fabric for the breakfast room and kitchen and a coordinating idea for the family room. We used a Grey and White contemporary pattern for the stationary panels in the breakfast and kitchen. This fabric looked beautiful with her Grey and White kitchen. Then for the Family room, we used a linen fabric in 2 grey colors. They framed the window beautifully!
