"Our intention is to offer an intuitive response to the mystical beauty expressed through nature – to help you create sanctuary through natural design. In this collection, we played with the subdued colors of nature, shades of light and shadow and natural fibers of rich texture that, when manipulated by the handloom, express quiet, organic designs that convey a sense of calm." – Michael Jones, Founder

A modern meets mid-century aesthetic, offering architectural detail with balance and versatility. Featured in LUXE Magazine, Interior Designer Jaclyn Christensen, then of IDF Studios, creates a refreshing design highlighting No.95 Basin – Saru Basin roman shades from the Tailored-to-Size Grassweave Collection.

“Without taking away from the incredible architectural details, I wanted something for the windows that was warm, both in color and texture, while simple enough so that the furnishings can really pop," said Christensen. "Saru Basin is one of my favorite Hartmann&Forbes weaves for its simplicity but also because it’s extremely versatile and will stand the test of time."  

Christensen specified Splitview™ shades allowing privacy in the kitchen, while in the breakfast nook and living room she opted for Traditional Style Shades providing a lived-in luxury appeal. The natural jute fiber of these Saru Basin shades perfectly complements the aesthetic of her design. 

The Tailored-to-Size Collections are beneficial for designers requiring a shorter lead time: 
Tailored-to-Size Grassweave Collection – a timeless textured collection made of legacy natural fibers exuding a relaxed and comfortable charm. 
Tailored-to-Size Collection Papyrusweave – a well-traveled collection of wood-pulp fiber designs, capturing stories and techniques found in global weaving communities.
Size Collection Colourweave – an artfully infused portfolio of weaves made of the inside peel of sustainable bamboo and custom painted to order by local artisans in modern and traditional matchstick patterns.

The San Francisco Decorator Showcase has been benefitting the San Francisco University High School financial aid program since 1977. To date the showcase has raised over $16 million for UHS, assisting 24% of the students and ensuring an equitable community of diverse backgrounds, academic excellence, and creative expression.

This year’s showcase at Le Petit Trianon, an iconic home built in 1904, featured 47 of the Bay Area’s top interior and landscape designers who applied their artistic vision to transform the rooms in this grand home. 

With a strong attendance of over 23,000 visitors, the showcase was a huge success. Hartmann&Forbes worked with three designers providing window and wallcoverings:


DESIGNER: Kathleen Navarra |  Navarra Design, Inc. 
Known for her bold sense of color, Kathleen Navarra has been shaping interiors for over 20 years. She has succeeded in creating a respected portfolio of projects spanning the Bay Area and beyond, always considering the importance of architecture, space, and detail while integrating the client’s lifestyle and vision into the aesthetic.

“We create sanctuaries to live in, not just to look at. We listen carefully and pay attention to detail to transform spaces with thoughtful planning, layered texture, color, and materials.”

ROOM: Master Bedroom, Dressing Room & Master Bath
A modern Garden of Eden, the master bedroom features soft hues and rich bronze tones. Contemporary furnishings in sumptuous velvet, rich wood tones, and bronze metals are layered in to create a lavish retreat. An Old Style roman shade in Tartan – Whitecap was the perfect complement to this soothing room.

The dressing room and master bathroom took cues from the traditional gilding throughout the house. The dressing room continues the seafoam green color with WL383 Lake Shore - Lincoln Park painted cork wallcovering. Both rooms feature  Essence - Cloud Old Style roman shades with drop hem and trim.

ROOM: The Artist-in-Residence Retreat
Artists seek this room as a retreat but also to inspire, contemplate and create. Throughout the room, art is displayed as an interactive gallery and studio retreat for guests, an ode to the French modernist salon. World adventurers can rest their creative minds in this refuge, which celebrates form and function highlighted by the ample sunlight candling through the Sendal natural Old Style roman shades.



DESIGNER: Kelly Hohla  | Kelly Hohla Interiors

ROOM: The Wo-Man Cave
Women need spaces of their own to think, relax, and gather inspiration. Bright and joyful colors anchor the space, while the rest of the room revises traditional ideas with pieces that are a little edgy and dark. A space for intimate gatherings and close friends, to read or enjoy a cocktail – a retreat from the formalities and pressures of daily life, a cozy contemporary get-away. Driftwood Rinca Old Style roman shade behind a fabric shade provides texture and softens the natural light in the room.

The Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) Product Awards recognizes the best product innovations, designs and merchandising programs in the windowcovering industry. With this innovative system, we are proud to be recognized as the 2018 WCMA Roman & Roller Shade Best New Style Concept and the 2018 Product of the Year.

“The WCMA Product Awards judges acknowledged Hartmann&Forbes team for Rollerfold’s innovative style concept,” said Ralph Vasami, executive director of WCMA.

The new Rollerfold Style (U.S. Patent Pending) combines the aesthetic beauty of a roman-fold shade with the sleek performance and child safety features of a Roller Style shade, eliminating all shade-body operational cords. Best of Kids Certified and 100% cordless when automated.

The three hand-sewn fixed folds offer a uniform appearance regardless of its position in a window, and without fold stacking, it can easily be concealed in a valance or soffit structure.
