New Big Design Trend: Woven Shades

It’s always a good idea to incorporate natural elements in your home, whether a touch of greenery, wicker, or bamboo. If, however, you’re ready for something more, consider woven shades. Currently one of the biggest trends in window treatments, woven shades boast a natural appeal that’s both casual and inviting. See why woven shades could be right for your home and how they tie rooms together no matter your design style:

They Hang and Fold: Like fabric Roman shades, woven shades hang at the top of any window, and fold up as you draw them up. If you’re looking for a clean, modern window treatment that doesn’t take up too much visual space in a room — this type of window treatment is a great solution. They offer a discreet way to treat your windows without overpowering the view. When the shades are closed, they provide privacy while still filtering through a moderate amount of light.

They Add Texture: You may love the popular neutral color palettes currently featured in countless Instagram accounts across the world. Woven shades add an all-important layer of texture that draws the eye and balances out white or neutral walls and ceilings. This extra layer brings a natural, outdoorsy element into a space, elevating a room with a casual-chic design sense.

They Come in Many Materials: The most popular materials for woven shades are bamboo or wood materials (think: grass, jute, reed or rattan) because they add a neutral touch of nature. They come in a variety sizes and a variety of finishes (from blond to Brazilian cherry), allowing them to blend seamlessly with any home’s style. Woven fabrics create a softer, more romantic touch that many people appreciate in cozy living rooms or bedrooms. The take-away: whether you’re decorating a country cabin, a coastal cottage, or a downtown loft, woven shades will work.
