Three Generations of Expertise

We're a 70 year old family business that prides itself on delivering a world-class customer experience and product. We’ve revolutionized the custom window treatment industry by simplifying and stylizing a traditionally complicated and expensive purchase.  We’re growing quickly and expanding aggressively: 55+ showrooms across the country, a state-of-the-art e-commerce website and a beautiful yearly catalog. But with all this exciting growth, our core values and principles have not changed.  We still handcraft every product right here in the USA and we still treat each and every customer with the greatest appreciation and professionalism.  These are our guiding principles and the backbone of our company – they will always remain true.
