Hunter Douglas introduced Duette®, the original honeycomb shade, in the 1980s. Today, we continue to innovate its premium, energy-efficient design to trend-set contemporary decor. We’ve completely re-engineered the hardware, including a sleek new headrail that now mirrors the honeycomb shape for a more streamlined design from top to bottom, expanded the collection with stylish new fabrics and color choices, refined and streamlined operating systems, and so much more. Certain Duette styles are actually so energy-efficient, they may qualify for a Federal Tax Credit Opportunity of up to $500.
Our Duette Duolite™ option, featuring two different fabrics/opacities of your choosing fused together to form one sophisticated shade design, has been re-engineered for enhanced style and performance. For instance, the moving connector rail, formerly visible, is now tucked away inside of the shade, creating a more seamless transition between the two fabrics with nothing to mar its beauty. Along with adding stunning visual interest and an element of surprise at the window, Duette Duolite offers a multitude of ways for you to manage your light and privacy needs.
Rounding out an already abundant selection of fabrics are three striking new offers: Northwood™ — a harmonious balance of rustic charm and clean modern lines, Alexa — inspired by organic elements found in nature, and Jardin — exclusive to The Alustra® Collection of Duette Architella® honeycomb shades and created from textured yarns that impart a casual chic vibe across the room. Coupled with opacities ranging from sheer to opaque, four pleat sizes and a refreshed palette of colors spanning whites and soft neutrals to mid-tone and more intense hues that lend distinct drama to the decor, Duette offers the most extensive selection of options for custom-creating your dream window shade.
