Pros

Extremely elegant, and retract into their standard head rail cover. They act as a sheer shade and a blind in one product. Their light weight makes them excellent for large windows.

Cons

The only downsides are their cost and they function poorly in a black out application.

Summary

These shades are considered among the finest window coverings available. They offer the flexibility of a blind combined with the elegance of a sheer curtain look.

They were invented by Hunter Douglas, called Silhouettes. There is a knock-off brand that is about 20% less expensive, and we feel that this is one of the few knock-offs that are worth it.
