It is not only very difficult to describe our gratitude to you, but more so to describe the excellence in every way that we received from you all. From the second we entered your store in Bethesda/Potomac - things looked and felt good. Then Gwen- a true lady and professional- came over and instantly we knew we were in superb hands. She listened, she thought, she understood and then delivered an outstanding product monitoring each step of the way. Her knowledge and understanding of magnificently crafted materials and the product, as well as an innate understanding of design - proved to provide us with more than we had imagined. Enter Majid. Opening a door to an absolute gentleman- who understood the process with indescribable skill and professionalism. What a superb experience it was to have Majid in our home- further sealing the professionalism, team work, and exquisite reliability of our experience with The Shade Store. And he came back- just to measure and make sure that things were done to perfection. And then, we could not have had a greater pleasure meeting yet another perfect gentleman in Robert. On time, once more we were met with excellence. Robert- another expert in his field- executing and finalizing the product with skill with perfection Installing a product with ease due to his own knowledge layered by experience. He left too soon- we enjoyed him so much- and we knee again- we had experienced the best there is. Gwen, Majid and Robert provided a flawless experience as individuals, professionals and as a team. We want to come back for more- not for the product, but because it was such a delight to meet and know these wonderful people. Who would have thought that opening and closing a shade in a home would be connected each and every time with a picture in our minds of Gwen, Majid and Robert with a smile in our hearts and a hope that they are always happy, always well, and always experiencing the joy in their own lives that they provide to others.

The shades look beautiful! It's like having artwork on our windows. Kevin is a great installer - he was really efficient, has a great sense of humor, and answered all our questions. And FYI on our wide double window, the seams are perfectly matched, so I'm really pleased about that. I can't thank you enough for all the time that was spent with me as we tried to make decisions about fabrics and linings.
