I'm very pleased with the drapes. Every step with your company has gone smoothly and professionally. I was impressed with the young man brought out from Atlanta who did the installation, expertly steaming all the wrinkles out and smoothing the ripples to hand properly. Thanks so much for your part in this!

Lisa R  | Mountain View, CA |  May 2, 2019

I totally love them! I spent at least a half hour yesterday and this morning just looking at them and enjoying how elegant and sophisticated my dining room looks now. My husband laughed at me for turning around during dinner to look at the shades. The design is perfect, the color is perfect, and they operate very nicely. Alexis and Jesus from Alro did a good job. They arrived on time and did all the work in about an hour. They brought everything they needed including a very long ladder. They cleaned up after themselves. No problems. All in all, I'm very happy. Thank you so much for making this a fun and successful experience. I will definitely recommend you and the Shade Store to my friends. In fact, I already did. 

James M  | San Carlos, CA |  April 30, 2019
