New Shades for Summer: Hunter Douglas Premieres Vignette and Parkland Wood

Parkview Wood Blinds Colors

Window Treatment Wednesday:  Hunter Douglas Premieres

Besides introducing the new PowerView Motorization System and Pebble Remote Controls that we raved about last week, Hunter Douglas also shared some other great new products with our window treatment designers at their recent Premieres Event.

“My favorite among the many is the Vignette,” says Diane from the Eden Prairie Hirshfield’s.  “They simplified the style options, it either rolls, stacks or glides. They also updated the fabrics with 5 new options.”

“I was most excited about the Vignette, now offering the tiered style with room darkening fabrics,” says Dawn from Hirshfield’s Shop at Home.  “Also, the new UltraGlide control for the Parkland wood blinds, which will operate like a Silhouette.”

In fact, Hunter Douglas’ wood blinds were a universal hit with the designers.
“I’m excited about the new species of wood that Parkland woods can be manufactured in,” says Beth from the Woodbury Hirshfield’s. “It’s called Abachi, like hibachi, but no h,” she jokes. “It’s lighter weight and textured, from Africa.  The wood can also go through a wire-brushing technique for a more weathered look.”

Premieres is done all over the United States and introduces the dealers to new products, enhancements to products and categories as well as changes and drops to the Hunter Douglas line of products,” says Shannon Scarrella, manager of Hirshfield’s Window Fashions.  “Dealers get to meet with brand managers from many divisions of Hunter Douglas and talk one-on-one.”

You can see the latest Hunter Douglas products at all of our Hirshfield’s locations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Dakota, and North Dakota. Talk with the designers about them, they’ll be glad to share the latest information.
