Hunter Douglas Pirouette® Shades

Pirouette window shadings family room golden light

Pirouette Window Shades offer an inspired view and comforting privacy

With a revolutionary design that incorporates horizontal fabric vanes and sheer backing, Hunter Douglas Pirouette® window fashions control light in an entirely new way.  Pull the operating wand once and the fabric vanes expand to close the shade, providing privacy and diffused light.  Pull the wand a second time, and the vanes contract, providing a clear view of outside.

Make a room your special place...

Create a mood. Set a tone. Opacity choices give you the control with Pirouette Window Shadings.

Light filtering fabrics allow soft light to wash into a room when the vanes are closed.

Room darkening fabrics bring color and drama to a room while still allowing a view to the outside when vanes are open.

Whichever you choose, the view outside is just a touch away. Whether it's a signature Colorado vista, or your own back yard, Pirouette Shades provide the versatility to let you make the choice to suit the moments of your life.

Unique Pirouette vane style gives you beautiful control with fabric softness

The unique design of Pirouette's soft vanes gives this window treatment product a sophisticated look like no other, and the functionality puts you in charge of the light management in your room.

Color, texture and ambience make your shades perfectly you.

Hunter Douglas Pirouette Shades are available in a group of distinct fabric styles, with textures and colors to satisfy any taste. From soft and inviting cotton, made of 80% recycled yarn, to the sophisticated sheen and texture of Shantung, Pirouette fabrics introduce new character into any room.

Choose from:

•  Linen-  A fine, smooth woven texture; for casual ambiance and filtered light    

•  Satin- Smooth texture with a gentle sheen fosters a luxurious, semi-formal feel in a room.

•  Satin Metallic- Satin texture with a silver, gold or copper overlay, creating a sumptuous shimmer. At home in a modern decorating scheme or as a subtle accent to complement any style.

•  Shantung- The look and feel of raw silk, with its characteristic striated appearance. The vertical aspect of the striae introduce a discreet counterpoint to the horizontal vanes, and bring both texture and a slight sheen to the window.
