Create an Eco-Friendly Home, Starting with Window Treatments

Waterfall Woven Wood Shade — Artisan Weaves Del Rey, Taupe

Eco-friendly window shades, blinds and drapery are an essential part of a healthy home. They control light, prevent glare, protect from UV Rays and help regulate temperature. They transform everyday spaces into relaxing retreats and can even help you get a great night’s sleep. At The Shade Store, we offer the finest custom window treatments — including natural woven shades, woven wood window shades, energy-efficient window treatments and more — made from high-quality, eco-friendly materials.

Energy-Efficient Window Treatments

High energy bills are something no one wants to deal with. Luckily, at The Shade Store, we offer a variety of energy-efficient window treatments to help keep your bills in check. Let’s explore your options:

Cellular Shades

Cellular Shade — 3/8″ Double Cell Light Filtering, White

Made with a unique honeycomb design, our Cellular Shades are some of the best energy-efficient window treatments you can find. Their cells trap air, providing excellent insulation and helping maintain comfortable temperatures. Available in light-filtering and blackout options, Cellular Shades can soften natural light or block it out completely, while providing full privacy.

Wools & Blends

If you have leaky windows, our Wools & Blends collection is full of beautiful energy-efficient and sustainable window treatments that help cut down on unwanted drafts. Wool Drapery is especially great at keeping chilly air out in the colder months and air conditioning in during the warmer months. We highly recommend exploring our partnership with Holland & Sherry — this exclusive collection showcases five gorgeous materials in 30+ colors, each made with 100% natural wool.
