Natural light and how it interacts and filters through our woven textiles is fundamental to the beauty and character of our natural woven shades. Some projects, however, require more privacy, sun control or furnishing protection.
Retrofitting a shade with a liner is one of the most common post-sale requests. It’s a process that can be time consuming and costly for the interior designer, so it’s important to consider your privacy options early in the specification process to avoid mistakes.
When selecting the proper liner for your shade you should consider the level of privacy and protection from sunlight, the degree of darkness desired, as well as the weight of the weave in relation to the weight of the liner.
We offer a full range of liners in three collections that are designed to color coordinate with your natural woven shade:
The SHEER COLLECTION offers a lightweight refined fabric prized for its delicate, light-filtering effect. Sheer liner adds body, weight and protection to woven shades without compromising the open-weave light-filtering characteristics.
The TRANSLUCENT COLLECTION provides a deeper level of privacy and protection, to both the woven shade and the interior, yet shapes and shadows remain recognizable.
The BLACKOUT COLLECTION offers complete privacy and total protection from the sun.
If you have questions about these privacy upgrades please feel free to contact your local Showroom Representative or Hartmann&Forbes directly at 888.582.8770.
