The First Hybrid Roman/Roller Shade Delivers the Best of Both Worlds!

Alustra Architectural Shades Living Cream

Who doesn’t want a beautiful and functional home that enhances your mood and your daily life? Window treatments affect our daily lives much more than we realize, controlling and even improving light, temperature, and privacy. Sometimes we end up compromising though, between window shades that look almost the way we want and shades that offer the ease and functionality we need. Can you ever have it all? We think so, and Hunter Douglas has made it achievable with their introduction of Alustra Architectural Shades.

Balancing Elegance and Function

The Best of Roller Shades

What makes Architectural Shades so different? The smooth reliable functionality and modern look of a roller shade combined with the soft horizontal panels of a roman shade. No stack of fabric folds at the bottom of the shade as it lifts like traditional roman shades. No back lifting cords, either. Just beautiful, uninterrupted panels.

The Best of Roman Shades

Architectural Shades’ soft, tailored battens create horizontal panels that add design rhythm and movement to a room, especially stunning if you happen to have multiple windows in a row. And you get instant architectural interest without any construction or added moldings. This layer in your room’s design can bring the whole room to life with dimension and a zen-like serenity.

Architectural Shades Elevate Your Lifestyle

Alustra Architectural Shades can change the way you live your life with smart home motorization and connectivity. PowerView®, Hunter Douglas’ motorization system, combined with the PowerView Hub are all you need. Operate your shades with your mobile device, even when you’re not at home, or with a simple spoken phrase with your voice assistant.

First, you’ll be able to set schedules for daily shade operation or even to make it look like you’re home when you’re on vacation. In addition you can create specialized home lighting “scenes” for times of day or special occasions, for example Morning, Party Time, or Game Day. All with a tap or a voice command. Obviously, you can enjoy endless personalization to enhance your lifestyle. More importantly, you’ll be able to maximize the energy efficiency of your windows and shades with Hunter Douglas’ PowerView app control, and even integration with other smart home devices and systems like Google Home, Amazon Echo Studio and more. You may not expect your life to change with PowerView smart home functions, but you may soon wonder how you lived without them.
